Ummm, no.

Loose the back bumper, the goofy door graphics and a some other bits of bling and might be kinda cool. Unless they started with an actual LRE in which case they need to be beaten severely.

I don't think the term HIDEOUS accurately captures how I feel about that truck, but its as good as I could come up with on short notice.


Never, ever argue with an IDIOT. They will drag you to their level and then beat you with their years of experience

That's the worst rear bumper/rear lamp setup ever. It almost makes you not notice the awful wheels and color, and the stupid name the guy gave to the truck.

At current bid of $150 I don't mind it too much, but a truck that can't carry a sheet of plywood is of no use to me.


Everybody makes fun of a hillbilly until they need something fixed.

Yeah, even $150 is a bit much when you look at it that way. My $300 truck could carry 5 yards of mulch, or a ton of gravel. It wasn't happy about it, but it could do it.

I never tried plywood but I've hauled drywall in my LRE. If I remember correctly it's 50" wide between the wheel wells.

The Utiline bed is the same width between the wheel wells as any other bed so, yeah if you haul 4x8 sheets of plywood on a continual basis then this truck would indeed work just fine for you. Just can't close the tailgate.

Would be interesting to see if someone has as bad of taste to actually buy it. For being a soild truck, I can't come up with a number I would pay then undo all that for a driver.
