    The Prius Tote one looks the most original, not a bad job

    Hey Bisco, you're the first one to post a comment after I introduced my Pruck back in May. You asked for more construction detail and pix. In case you missed it, all the information/pictures I have on the Pruck conversion is posted at http://www.hartog.net/pruck

    I had considered quite some time why Toyota had not built a Prius based 1/4 ton truck. Then in April, I saw Ruudh's post on his project so I was inspired.
    And Covid's "stay at home" presented time.
    So here it is:
    2005 Trius TRX
    For the wife to toot around town, hàul some mulch and garden stuff, take the dog along on a trash run.
    She had it 12 years ànd got a new 2018 Prius upon retirement. Older Prius 135K miles - still much life left.

    April-May 2020.

    I haven't visited PriusChat in about 3 years. I did today and found some comments on my 2016 "Pruck" conversion.
    The sad fact is that the Pruck was totaled in February 2017 when a woman under the influence of drug exited I-275 and ran right through a red light.
    Pruck be gone
    Thank you for the compliment. It means a lot.....Ruud
