Very Tiny Wrangler Pickup

Not sure if this can even be classified as a pickup, but here you have what used to be a two door wrangler with the rear chopped up to be fitted with a trunk cover and a rear swing out gate. Interesting idea if someone wanted a compact truck bed.

Reminds me of those Hot Wheels cars with disproportionate wheels. I just don't understand why you would turn a two door Wrangler into a pickup. That's just reducing the already small cargo space even more. At that point it's the size of a cooler.

If they would have extended the bed or something, it would have been alright. But this looks like it belongs to Ken and should be parked at Barbies play house or something.

Though it does reduce the Wrangler's overall weight when you're missing a portion of it. Maybe the owner is on to something there.

I think all of that weight got brought back when he put those DUBs on there...

The rear end can be a poor mans version of what RR's have

The tailgate swings outwards instead of lowering, more like a mini fridge on a Wrangler than what RR's have. The tiny pickup sits so high on those DUBs and it's so light, must be a pain to make safe turns without feeling like you're going to roll over.

If anything its the opposite because those dubs are going to slow it down epecailly for someone who knows what the OEM wheels feel like. On the lighter OEM wheels you would feel that lightness. Rotational mass matters.

Not only are the wheels heavier to give you more of a heavy feel, they're also wider which adds to the stability of it. Lower offset means the wheels are set out a bit farther which again, more stability than if it were on oem wheels.
