Icon10 Got it!

Picked it up last night. Pick is kinda crap since it was my cell phone. took it inside the dealer since it was raining out



drives awesome. cant wait to get some new tires though and a bunch of other crap my wife hates me to buy


The 5sp auto shifts so smooth unless you kick it down then you notice the shifting. The 3 skid plates seem very solid (1/4" steel) (1 front , 1 tranfercase, 1 fuel tank). also the hood is aluminum so its very light. I comes with a stage III reciever which is good but the thing i noticed is that there is also a hole in the bumper so if you have a light load (2000lbs max) you can just put a ball in there and use the bumper. Also the way to lower the spare tire is sweet. I dont know if a body lift would screw that up though. But when i get bigger tires I will probally just take it off since it will be useless anyways. Think thats it. everything is same as the ranger inside. the radio/controls are wrapped in a carbon fiber skin. The white face guages are very nice to look at and at night they look even better

I havent even had it 24hrs and got like 500km on it lol.

will get new and better picks up when i get a chance
