Born out of a lifelong love for the classic Toyota Land Cruiser, the Icon FJ Series ($126,000 and up) is a modern re-imagining of the legendary off-roader. Available in three body styles, the FJ's features include a standard 5.3 Liter, 350hp V8 engine, four-wheel disc brakes, Dynatrac Dana 60/40 based axles, Marine-rated vinyl on the seats, an Atlas II transfer case, aluminum knobs, sport pedals, an optional soft top, aeronautics-inspired dash panles, and a Teflon polyester hybrid powder coat that can stand up to the worst punishment you can dish out, even if that's just a trip over potholed suburban streets.
Placing third in Egypt's Pharaoh's Rally is no easy task, especially for a auto-making unit that recently switched ownership — but that's exactly what the QT Wildcat 500DKR ($TBA). Billed as a "full-blown rally raid machine," this mean off-roader is powered by a 4-liter Jaguar V8 good for 275hp, and features a fully ruggedized chassis, drivetrain, and electronics, including a high-strength steel space frame, a light weight composite body shell, larger dampers with coil over springs capable of handling more punishment than you're likely to dish out, and more.
With a bold, oversized body and enough power to tear your neighbor's house right off the foundation, the new 2011 Ford Super Duty ($TBA; Spring 2010) is bound to be the manliest truck on your block. Offered with either a new "Scorpion" 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 or a 6.2-liter gas-powered V8, the new Super Duty is a tower's dream, with advanced features like Trailer Sway Control, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, Hill Start Assist and Hill Decent Control, an all-new 6R140 heavy-duty TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission, and a gauge cluster-mounted 4.2-inch LCD for keeping an eye on all the different systems.
Turn your Jeep into something even more useful with the AEV Brute Jeep Pickup ($9,000). Made for TJ Wranglers, this complete conversion kit turns any average Jeep into a manly truck in just 60 hours. Winner of the Daimler/Chrysler Design Excellence Award, the kit includes mid- and rear-frame extensions, a hardtop with dual integrated skylights, a cab closeout, a complete bed assembly with tailgate, and more.
