Suzuki Equator for SEMA...


I don't know if there will be any Nissan trucks or SUVs at SEMA this year, but there will be at least one Suzuki Equator which is just as good. This Equator is made up by Icon Vehicle Dynamics and is pretty good looking. There is nothing over the top and nothing that is obviously unfunctional. It is clean and simple. Well done I say. It uses the Total Chaos arms that were originally made up for the Frontier and has some extended shocks that come through the truck bed. Quote below from Truck Trend

Representing Suzuki at SEMA this year is a custom Equator pickup truck built by ICON Vehicle Dynamics. ICON has been building off-road truck equipment for years, and with the Equator based on the long-running Nissan Frontier, building a serious off-road Equator was all too easy.

To get the Equator ready to tackle the trails, ICON added their own performance coilover spring kit with 2.5-in piggyback shocks, all mounted to their Total Chaos upper control arms. In the rear, the shocks protrude through the bed and are mounted to heavy-duty custom framework. Trail Ready bead-lock wheels wrapped in Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires complete the dirt-ready suspension set-up. Under the hood, Doug Thorley long-tube headers and a cat-back exhaust help the 4.0L V-6 breathe better, increasing performance both on- and off-road.


To help their heavy duty Equator look the part, ICON called up Bushwacker for some big fender flares and LightForce for some big spot lights up on the nose. A brush guard on the nose gives the lamps a place to mount while a special mount in the bed holds the full-size spare. An AMP Research bed extender makes up for the bed space lost to the suspension
and spare tire mounts.
