    A Pruck? No, a Prius pickup is a Prickup. :p

    I was thinking Prija or Subius.

    The All Wheel Drive badge appears to still be in place, but somehow I doubt that it works.
    I hoped both were prewrecked. Otherwise it is a prwaste of two good cars.

    I'm thinking... I wouldn't have painted it that way...

    I'd have done a wrapped graphic... something sorta gothic too... or like something Boris would be seen as at least influencing...

    Just saying... 40mpg sorta pu-truck... I'm in.

    I assembled the "Pruck" , here is a link to more photos and the process.
    Prius Truck from AutoBeYours

    People ( especially the Baja crowd and the youngsters) have been very positive with comments.

    very frequently we see someone with a camera.

    Woody, if you happen to come across a wrecked Corvette and decide to morph it with a Prius, the results could be very interesting. :)

    It doesn't have a totally clean roofline anymore... but it can haul a washing machine... at like 40 mpg... that's better than a Brat... and I like that...

    It looks like you relocated the rear axle to the Brat well... is it still all connected to the Prius systems, and did you increase the rear spring/struts/whatever to accommodate a larger load.

    It has a subaru BAJA rear axel, capable of AWD, but I removed the differential to save weight.

    Maybe the next one you'll add an electric motor & make an AWD Pruck?

    Hi All,

    I say that needs a aero cap on that truck bed to make it a true Priuckup.

    That is all the "truck" that most pickup truck owners actually "need."
