Suzuki Equator by ICON Vehicle Dynamics

ICON Vehicle Dynamics used Suzuki’s award-winning Equator platform as its base and with the assistance of a variety of Southern California-based suppliers, was able to assemble a more aggressive interpretation of Suzuki’s off-road vehicle. The Equator’s class-leading 4.0 liter V6 is amplified by Doug Thorley long-tube headers and cat-back exhaust. When you go off-road, you’ll be glad to know that the Equator’s suspension is enhanced with ICON’s own performance coilovers in front and 2.5-inch piggyback shocks supporting linked to Total Chaos upper control arms. Now that the vehicle already has power and the capability, ICON gave it Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires mounted to Trail Ready bead-lock wheels. Protecting the Equator’s bodywork are Bushwacker fender flares. For utility and safety, the car is provided with AMP Research bed extender and LightForce lights.
