Icon Alloys from Icon Vehicle Dynamics
Icon Alloys are made from aluminum alloy construction providing strength properties that are well suited for off-road use. Having tested a set of their Shield wheels I can say the stand up to heavy off-roading abuse extremely well.They have reduced unsprung weight and rotating mass improving on and off-road vehicle performance. Changing from Method's wheels I presiously used in the same 17x8.5 size, I found the Icon Alloy Shield wheel was almost 5 lbs per wheel lighter, that is a huge difference in rotating mass. The Shield wheel has been engineered to maximize caliper clearance and optimize wheel position for un-hindered suspension travel and steering function. With backspace dimensions developed specifically for Ford, Toyota and Jeep applications. On the Ford Raptor the wheels are hubcentric like factory wheels instead of the usually loose fitting lugcentric, this provides the best strength and perfect centering. The satin finish on these wheels stays clean looking after prolonged unwashing and offroad use, a welcomed blessing over our previous brand that required constant cleaning to retain a decent looking presence. As many of you know, I call it as I see it and I am very impressed with this wheel and have received numerous compliments on their apperance
Icon Alloys has three wheels types available in different finishes and sizes and can be found at Icon Alloys website.

Mash to the Mint 400
We had a great group turn out for the Club Expedition X Offroad Mash 2 the Mint 400. Friday was a showcase of race vehcles and vendor displays across several blocks on Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Saturday morning the group met west of Vegas out near Red Rock area and proceeded to off road to Primm Nevada where the start and finish of the Mint 400 takes place. The Mint 400 and Mad Media set us up with a great VIP experience while Ford gave us sweet trackside parking next to the Raptor trailers. Recap on video page.
Rip 2 the Strip 2
Our first trip with club Expedition X Offroad on the Rip 2 the Strip 2 event was a great success. This is a first rate group of people with everyone helping each other as mishaps happen along the way. Everyone drove within their limits and there were no serious issues making it a great success. While there were some flats, broken exhaust and a small electrical fire on a modded truck, everyone was helped through and made it home.
The trip started at the edge of Victorville California and headed to the West edge of Vegas near the red rock mountain area. The majority of the group stayed at the Hard Rock Casino where we celebrated a great day one of the event. Day two was a return trip starting in Henderson Nevada and follwing a different route. Recap on Video page.
