This baby-blue example sets the bar way, way high, at a price of $265,000. It's an Icon 4x4 restomod, it's gorgeous, and it's for sale right now on the firm's website. If you've got a quarter-million burning a hole in your pocket and a K5-sized vacancy in your garage, you should buy it.

Icon 4x4, based in Los Angeles, is known for building some truly world-class off-roaders. But most of its work is focused on Toyota Land Cruisers, and occasionally, Land Rover Defenders. This K5 Blazer was a one-off built by the company in 2015 to the same standards as its typical 4x4s. That means a body-off restoration and a modernized drivetrain, electricals, and interior. As with any Icon truck, it looks as if no expense was spared.

Under the hood sits a GM 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine making 430 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of torque. Thrust gets to all four wheels via a GM 4L85E four-speed automatic transmission, paired with an Atlas II part-time 4x4 transfer case and custom Dynatrac Dana 60-based axles. The custom suspension consists of Atlas springs combined with Currie sway bars and Fox Racing shocks.

Inside, passengers are greeted by custom leather seats front and rear, as well as a leather steering wheel, a lockable steel center console, a modern sound system, and extensive sound insulation material.

OMFG - I sold my '79 K-10 Blazer for $5000.00 with a cracked axle.

Thing was a beast. Spent more time in the air than on the ground. Was not even well behaved unless I had the 8' Western Plow on it.

THis thing? Too Much.

Saw it and immediately thought, must be an Icon truck :rofl: That’s the going rate for most of their resto-mods.

The one they built on that tv show trucks with a big block with a pro charger and new paint was selling for 35k on eBay. Thought that was a good deal.

Never seen their work in person. Does their work seriously justify $250k+?

Icon makes some rad shit, but holy fuck are they expensive.

It's like Singer Porsche's, very cool, but probably 2-4x the cost of what they really should be
