“We’ve turned a legend into an ICON.” Jonathan & Jamie Ward, founders ICON and TLC4X4
For the past two and a half decades, Jonathan and Jamie Ward and their team have been restoring Toyota FJs in their Los Angeles TLC4X4 and ICON workshops. The purposeful and tasteful design elements and upgrades in their projects are only surpassed by their exceptional second-to-none build quality. ICON FJ40 #161 was commissioned by our longtime friend and client who is the consummate car guy. Having had countless NAS Defenders, Gwagens and sportscars of all types, the idea with the ICON was to build something over-the-top, and that he did. From the vibrant color choice of Eucalyptus Green, the 6.2 litre V8 with all its power and the most terrific growl and exhaust note, the sportscar-like 5 speed gear box, and those Brembo brakes… all makes for the coolest package, equally at home off-road, on the drag strip or even the sedate trip to the coffee shop.
