ICON Vehicle Dynamics was honored recently at the 2019 SEMA Show when its Stage 1 Suspension System for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator JT was named Best New Off-Road Product at the trade show’s annual New Product Awards. Offering a 2.5-inch lift and clearance for up to 37-inch tires, this entry-level suspension system greatly improves the Gladiator’s off-road capabilities with increased suspension geometry and wheel travel.
The SEMA Show’s annual New Product Awards competition recognizes outstanding achievements in the development of products being introduced to the automotive specialty-equipment market at the annual trade show. Products are judged in 16 award categories, and each category has one winner and two runners-up. Each year the award winners and runners-up are announced at the New Products Awards Breakfast at the Westgate Casino & Hotel on the opening morning of the show.
“A lot of effort goes into the research and development process behind our off-road suspensions systems,” said Dylan Evans, founder and lead engineer of Icon Vehicle Dynamics. “We are proud of our Stage 1 Suspension System for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator JT and honored that it was recognized as the best among other new products at the 2019 SEMA Show.”
The Stage 1 Suspension System is a bolt-on system that includes dual rate front coil springs, adjustable billet front sway bar end links, billet rear coil spacers, ICON 2.0 Aluminum Series shocks with vehicle-specific valving and all hardware necessary for installation. The 2.5-inch lift eliminates the factory rake and allows for the fitment of 35-inch off-road tires without any additional modifications and up to 37-inch tires with the optional extended bump stop spacer kit.
ICON Vehicle Dynamics suspension components are manufactured in the USA, the included coil springs are covered by a limited lifetime warranty against sagging and breakage and the ICON 2.0 Aluminum Series shocks are covered by a one-year warranty.
