    I like how he says "oh, about 160", but really nice vehicles.

    Here' an excerpt from the brochure...

    The ICON is not a fashion statement. It is a vehicle – a utilitarian tool to maximize your
    experiences in the outdoors. “Sport utility vehicles,” Jonathan says, “have all but lost their
    usefulness. That’s why we created this.”
    The ICON is for accomplished people who do not need to show their status, but who love
    owning something that is unique, highly functional, and made just for them.
    The ICON is for people who appreciate the intelligence that goes into the hundreds of
    choices made in its design and assembly, and how, in a vehicle costing upwards of $100,000,
    nothing is superfluous.
    This is a product for those who resist commoditized mass production goods
    in favor of hand crafted US made products of distinction and quality.

    It's cool, but if I was shopping in that range I'd take the Brute / Jeep 4 door truck over it.

    FYI, the base price is only $127,000 on Icon FJ40. That's much more reasonable, eh? Would you have to get a car loan or a mortgage to buy it?

    He'll have a bunch more time on his hands soon (since he announced he is finally retiring from the Tonight Show), so he might actually take someone up on it now.

    Those are some well built vehicles with a lot of attention to detail, but you can get similar ones for a lot less money elsewhere (though its harder now that Profitt's closed). I kind of partial to the Bronco one despite being a Toyota guy.
