    The marketing staff from one of our site vendors, ICON Vehicle Dynamics contacted me recently because there is a request from a movie production company for an ICON equipped Raptor that will be used in an upcoming shoot for the movie CHECK POINT.

    Here is what has been requested specifically:

    If you are interested or would like more information, please send a PM to @ICON_Allen.

    The character in the movie that will be using the Raptor is playing a veteran/private citizen so they don't want a truck with a company wrap or anything. YOU don't need to be a veteran.

    Andy, yours is one too, why don't you do it?

    Mine's a daily driver so might be tough, plus I ain't close so it would be gone awhile. Would be sweet if they could "help a little" to cover my RXT upgrade that TMX will be doing....

    Hey there gents, as Andy pointed out the production company does not require the ACTUAL owner of the truck to be a veteran, but the character in the movie plays a US veteran.

    And to clarify, "We would need the truck delivered in Wilmington July 5th and it will be wrapped/done July 9th" does not mean they are vinyl wrapping the truck - they are referring to the end of filming with the vehicle.

    The request for this vehicle comes from a good friend of ICON who thought it'd be a great way to promote us while giving a lucky Raptor owner the opportunity to have their rig get a little fame in the process.

    It's a little last minute, I know, but I appreciate anyone kicking around the idea.

    Thanks,

    JH

    Yea I would deliver mine to Wilmington for use if ICON wants to strap on an ICON set up and whatever else the movie company wants. All I ask in return is I get to keep whatever is added to my truck.
