Street Trucks - - WORD ON THE STREET -

COINED BY JONATHAN WARD of ICON 4x4 (don’t let the name fool you, they build ev­ery­thing), dere­licts bridge the gap be­tween rat rods and Ri­dler con­tenders. Not to be con­fused with your run-of-the-mill patina’d ride, a derelict is a high-end build that hap­pens to look like some­thing you just dug out of your great grand-un­cle’s back­yard. Main­tain­ing a weath­ered ex­te­rior, ev­ery­thing else about a derelict is flaw­less, from the fully re­stored in­te­ri­ors to the cus­tom chas­sis and mod­ern driv­e­train. How­ever, up un­til now, all of JW’S dere­licts have been cars.

We’ve been wait­ing on Jonathan to take on a truck as a derelict build (all of his trucks thus far have been built as ICON TRS with re­stored ex­te­ri­ors), and based on a ren­der­ing that popped up of a

Thrift­mas­ter 4x4 crew cab on the ICON 4x4 web­site, we’re hop­ing that such a build will be com­ing sooner rather than later.
