Hello Bronco6G family, and welcome to our own little section of the forum! We're proud to be here and excited to be developing products for the new Ford Bronco. Some of you may be familiar with ICON already, and some may know me, but for those who don't I'll introduce both the company and myself :)

icon-logo04.jpg

We are ICON Vehicle Dynamics, a company born out of the off-road motorsports, desert racing and back country adventure scenes. We built our reputation on innovative shock absorber and suspension technologies and precision manufacturing IN THE USA. We have since applied our design philosophy to wheels with our ICON Alloys product line, and more recently, to bumpers and armor with our ICON Impact product line. And we are excited to expand each of these segments of our business into the Bronco market.

ICON Vehicle Dynamics and our core suspension product line embodies our philosophy of offering complete suspension systems to achieve any off-roader's performance goals. No two rigs are alike, no two drivers are alike. We all have different expectations and aspirations. So ICON has developed a range of state of the art suspension components, from shocks and springs to full coilovers, control arms, brackets, links and joints. From these we are able to select components to offer a range of suspension system "Stages" to achieve most off-roader's perfect combination of performance, ride quality, suspension travel, and of course budget. Our suspension stages usually begin with our simple, budget-friendly leveling kits and continue on up to our complete coilover kits with long-travel control arms. We look forward to bringing this range of diversity to our Bronco product line, with several of these products already in the can and much more in development. Of course we'll be telling you about these soon!

ICON Alloys is our wheel line, which we call "Wheels designed with suspension in mind." Originally developed as an important extension of a complete suspension system to maximize performance, this segment of our business has evolved into a diverse line of great looking wheels that maintain a steadfast adherence to maximizing both form and function. Our most recent innovation, which has taken the off-road world by storm, is our patented InnerLock technology, a revolutionary new bead retention system available now in our Rebound Pro wheels. These of course are available in the 6 on 5.5" Bronco bolt pattern, in several backspacing variants. We'll be talking about these and all of our other Bronco-compatible wheels here on the forum!

ICON Impact is a relatively new endeavor for us, as we launched it last year to bring our design and manufacturing resources to bear on the 4X4 bumper and armor market. We started with a full product line for Jeep Wrangler, and we're excited to now turn our attention to the Bronco. Our Impact series products are built for high clearance, high impact and high performance. While I don't have any sneak peeks to show you just yet (the image below is from one of our Jeep bumpers), I can tell you that the prototype designs currently working their way through our engineering department are amazing. I can't wait to get them on my own Bronco and show them off to all of you.

That's a little bit about ICON, and we'll of course be talking more about our products here on the forum, and always welcome your questions. I also wanted to introduce myself, for those of you who don't know me. The popularity of the new Bronco has brought a ton of new players out of the woodwork, many of whom are brand new to Broncos and the Bronco enthusiast community. Not me. I've been in Broncos for nearly 30 years, and currently own a 1970 and a 1971 Bronco (the latter is currently in parts!), and a new 2021 2-door Bronco.

I've been a fixture in the Bronco enthusiast community for decades, having founded So Cal Broncos, one of the oldest and most active non-club Bronco enthusiast communities, way back in 2001. And I've been a member of this forum nearly since it's inception, under my personal profile "Dusty." Nor am I new to the off-road aftermarket industry. I've worked in the recreational vehicle and 4X4 aftermarket since the 90's, including nearly 10 years helping to build the storied Poison Spyder brand in the Jeep market. I've been working with ICON for over a year now, and am excited to help introduce our brand and products to the Bronco community.

So excuse our dust as we get settled in here and start populating our sub-forum with threads for our various products and technologies. Feel free to post questions here or in a new thread if you like! If you have a question about ICON that I can't answer, I'll find someone that can, and get back to you :)

What's the build on the blue OBX in your photo? I just want a 1" lift and 33" tires for sand driving, but still comfortable and quiet enough for road & highway use!

I really like your Repound Pro and I really hope you make them in a little darker bronze then you already have.

Glad you are here and looking forward to continuing business with Icon. Y'all had me sold a long time ago, pre-Icon days. Yall's products and personal customer support is second to no one. Looking forward to seeing what y'all have developed.

I have owned Icon products in the past. It’s great stuff. Even ended up in the hospital installing some of your products, no fault to Icon, so we go way back.

Welcome to the forum Dusty. Your Rebound wheels are at the top of my Bronco "wheel list". Now, if I can just get that Bronco....:)

Have a set (5) of your Compression wheels in bronze for my A51 BL SAS 4Dr on order through Discount Tire. Looks like they are a little delayed due to supply but so is my Bronco so it’s all good. Look forward to seeing your other products out soon!

Dusty...great introduction, love ICON stuff, welcome to the site.

(as a business owner, just a little advice, you need to have links to your website, at the very least in your profile, so the higher-ups can track the click-throughs and attribute the traffic to your work)

We need some slider steps. Will sell like hot cakes
Duly noted! We have sliders in the works already :)

As you've been on this forum for quite a while, you've seen the interest in a winch bumper solution that keeps the winch low and tight to take advantage of the forward facing camera. Oh yeah, and relocate the adaptive cruise and keep air going to the intercooler, should be a piece of cake ;).
LOL it's actually the toughest thing to do with these Broncos: design a front bumper with winch mounting that looks simple, elegant and compact. I've been watching the other manufacturers and so far some do a valiant effort and some just phone it in. But it's hard to do, the way Ford has packaged everything. But we've got our team on it. First prototype has been built and they're working on tweaks to it now. I can't show you a sneak peek yet but the goal is to have it on our show rig at SEMA. Speaking of SEMA, yes ICON will have a Bronco in the booth there, with as much Bronco stuff on it as we are able to get to the prototype stage in time :)

Will you guy’s be making some 3.0s?
We already do! ICON 3.0 series shocks are available for some direct-fit applications (Raptor, Tundra, etc.). But whether or not they can be offered for Bronco comes down to packaging. There's not a whole lot of room inside those front UCA's. But of course we make our own UCA's so you never know what the future might hold :) But our 2.5 coilovers are going to perform awesome in our Bronco suspension systems!

That wheeling pick looks like the Maze. 😊
Good eye! Yeah that's me shooting photos on that drop-in near the beginning of the Maze, last year during Trail Hero!

What's the build on the blue OBX in your photo? I just want a 1" lift and 33" tires for sand driving, but still comfortable and quiet enough for road & highway use!
That was just a stock Outer Banks with our Compression series wheels and some 35's installed. I wasn't here when we did it but I'm pretty sure it didn't have any lift or other mods. Looks cool but you probably wouldn't want to run it like that as it will rub on articulation. They were just on there temporarily for the photos.

I really like your Repound Pro and I really hope you make them in a little darker bronze then you already have.
I'll relay your request! I don't get that involved on the wheel side of the business but I do know it's a huge undertaking with tons of moving parts, to do something that seems as simple as offering an additional color. But feedback is always welcome and considered :)

Any plan for a mid or long travel kit? I need a capable desert runner, I can't be alone in that.
Depends on what you mean by mid and long travel. We're probably not likely to develop a kit that requires torching brackets off the frame and welding new ones on so you can install longer control arms, but we've found a few ways to squeeze better travel and articulation out of the stock geometry. For example, a new, higher angle version of our Delta Joint boll joint, which we have been developing for our Raptor kits, is going into our billet front upper control arms for the Bronco. In the rear, our control arms will have a massive FK rod end at one end and a soft-durometer high angle bushing at the other. Our CAD models have hinted at some pretty impressive travel spec's we should be able to achieve once the system is complete. BTW I have the billet arms on my 2-door already, there's a thread here on 6G with photos of them. They did free up the rear end a bit on the otherwise stock suspension, but we probably won't get the full benefit of them until they're paired with our coilovers, which are in the works.
