We caught up with Johnathan Ward, lead designer and creator of Icon 4x4, at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show, where he showed his latest one-off custom creation: the 1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack Reformer. A model of incredible details, the Six-Pack Reformer puts a Ford crew cab on top of a 2006 Dodge chassis and suspension, and stuffs an upgraded 5.9-liter Cummins inline six-cylinder under the hood. Watch the video to hear Ward explain how he built it.

That's how you do it. If you want a reliable Ford you get rid of the original powertrain.

Sooo true. The most frustrating times of my life involve keeping a Ford running. I'm not going back to that.

Art + Brawn = ICON

Really cool!!! Thx for the video.
For those who didn’t listen to the video, the engine and other things, were client requested.

The Cummins 5.9 is a great engine no matter what its in or comes from. It just so happens that its plentiful with old Dodge powertrains. Its a smart move. This was done so well and smartly.

ICON has been one my all time favorite automotive restoration/builders, ever since I saw the videos a few years ago where he took a 60s Dodge crew cab and built it into something very similar to this Ford Crew cab seen we see here in this latest article.

That 60s Dodge crew cab truck also has a somewhat modern Dodge RAM platform with a 5.9 Cummins powering it.

Both of these trucks he created, are just flat out amazing.

If anyone is interested Icon has a Youtube channel with lots of great video's on pretty much all the builds he has done.

I only wish I could afford one, I seem to recall both the Dodge and now this Ford crew cabs were sold for north $200K.
