About the Delta Joint
ICON Vehicle Dynamics is extremely proud to introduce the Delta Joint – a new product that combines the durability of a ball joint with the performance of a traditional uniball. The Delta Joint’s patent-pending design was conceived after an interesting pattern of premature uniball wear was recognized by our engineering team. What was peculiar about these cases was that they seemed to be consistently reported from areas in which road salts and other harsh de-icing agents are used throughout the year. After the inspection of several sets of uniballs, it was clear that wear and tear were being accelerated on these components in these particular conditions.
While the industry standard uniball does a great job of allowing the control arms of a vehicle to articulate with little bind, they do have an inherent weakness that leaves more to be desired when used in a daily driven application - exposure to the elements. Whether it be corrosive chemicals used on roadways or the unforgiving dirt and mud that comes with off-road adventure, uniballs allow this debris to build up and eventually work its way into the internals causing wear and possibly failure. Understanding this flaw and the problems that it creates is what sparked the idea of developing a heavy duty, high angle retrofit ball joint which ultimately led to the creation of the patent pending ICON Delta Joint.
Check out these two recent #SDHQBUILT Tacomas builds we completed. Both builds are different but each one features different capabilities and functionality. At SDHQ we pride ourselves on listening to our customers and building around their needs and style. Whatever you are looking for we have the products, knowledge and experience to make your perfect build a reality.
This build started with a brand new, completely stock 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD. We wanted to maximize off-road capabilities as much as possible, yet maintain the ride and function of day to day driving. We paired Total Chaos Suspension components with Icon shocks to achieve a mid travel kit that allows increased travel and superior dampening. This Tacoma turned out to be an absolute beast and the digressive valving makes the transition from off-road to on, seamless. This truck got loaded with enough Baja Designs off-road lighting to be able to take on the Baja 1000, and as always SDHQ outfitted all that lighting in a clean custom package. In addition to our custom lighting mounts we installed a SDHQ EXCLUSIVE winch mount that neatly houses a Warn winch behind the stock bumper. Check out the full product breakdown below and as always feel free to contact us for any questions about the products and services we offer! So when you’re ready to take your truck to the next level you know you can trust the professionals at SDHQ.

This customer definitely pushes his trucks to the limit. He came to us with damaged factory plastics and was looking to completely reinforce not only his factory exterior components but suspension as well. We went with Pelfreybilt bumpers, sliders and skid plates, they are heavy duty but offered clean lines and housing for all the Baja Designs lighting we could throw at it. He wanted a truck that could handle the abuse off-road but maintain handling on road as well. We knew he needed a suspension system designed with maximum performance in mind. Our primary focus was to increase wheel travel and damping ability, which translates into outstanding vehicle control and ride quality. So we went with Total Chaos upper control arm coupled with Icon shocks. Needless to say the customer was extremely happy and been enjoying putting his upgrades to the test.

Our customer came to us with a stock 2015 Tundra and said he wanted something different than the same old cookie cutter lift, wheel tire package you could get anywhere else. He said he wanted a truly off-road capable pre-runner that would maintain its street manners and look good while doing both. We knew exactly what to do. Here is the build breakdown.

SDHQ Carries a huge selection of recovery gear and products to get you out of sticky situations. Over the years we put hundreds of different types of recovery products to the test in real life applications and not all make the cut. Here are some of our favorite recovery products!
We wanted to take the number one selling truck in America and make it a SDHQ built F-150. The F-150 is a great starting platform, however we knew we could turn it up a few notches. Our goal was to make a clean and functional daily driver with offroad capabilities. With the addition of a few bolt on accessories, we transformed the truck from basic to an extremely capable offroad vehicle with great street manners. The 5.0L power plant certainly isn’t lacking power, but we have never had anyone say they have too much power, so we took a Whipple Supercharger and paired it with AFE twisted steel headers and exhaust. That power and performance translates to 500Hp to the rear wheels. For this build we wanted to do something different than anything else we’ve seen on the market and we had fun doing it ! All of these products are ready and available to our 2015 Ford F150 owners. Here’s the breakdown:
The ICON Vehicle Dynamics 2015+ Ford F-150 Stage 5 suspension system is the best choice for drivers looking to maximize the on and offroad potential of their trucks and will inspire confidence behind the wheel in nearly any situation. ICON engineers’ primary focus is to increase wheel travel and damping ability, which translates into outstanding vehicle control and ride quality both on and off-road. This system includes vehicle-specific tuned 2.5” coilover shocks featuring an external remote reservoir w/ CDCV for exceptional cooling properties and ICON-engineered Eibach coil springs for superior vehicle “feel” through the range of travel. These coilovers are also height adjustable from 2-2.5” allowing the use of larger, more aggressive wheel and tire combinations. Uniball upper control arms on the F-150 not only add strength and durability, but help retain factory alignment spec range increasing caster over stock. ICON 2.5 Series Piggyback w/ CDCV rear shocks utilize a vehicle-specific valving that balances the performance of the truck from front to rear. 2.5″ CDC reservoir front and rear shocks ensure optimum performance by increasing the duration of consistent damping regardless of situation, keeping the shocks at a cooler operating temperature during heavy use. ICON’s CDC Valve upgrade is included in this stage front and rear for those desiring an easy way to tune the ride externally with 10 settings from soft to hard.

SDHQ presents an easy way to keep the slick look of your factory bumper while adding a winch. The SDHQ Winch mount was designed specifically for use on the Non-Ecoboost 2015 Ford F150. The SDHQ winch mount has been designed to fit the Warn Zeon 10 Platinum series of winches with wireless controller. Other winches similar in size with a similar bolt pattern may fit but are in no way guaranteed to fit by SDHQ or its distributors. With our mount you can keep the Warn roller fairlead that comes standard with either of those winches or you can swap out to synthetic rope and an aluminum fairlead for an even cleaner look.
This Winch Mount only fits the Non-Ecoboost 2015+ F150 (3.5L V6 N/A, 5.0 V8)
