TRUCKLA: The world's first Tesla pickup truck

  • Published: 18 June 2019
  • I got tired of waiting for Tesla to release their pickup truck, so I made my own. And I named it Truckla. WATCH HOW WE BUILT IT:

                                              hell yeah!! Totally agree. I had to almost loose my life to get that myself.
                                              And I'm just really really glad you didn't say, "...what your good about"
                                              ............. cause thats bad grammer.

                                              well, anyhow, so, i gotta ask. how many people do you (usually) have in your production crew?

                                                      I can honestly say I’d rather take my 1996 1/2 ton ram with the 360 mopar v8 out on the trails than an electric toy car meant to run on roads with the back cut off and no additional suspension work done. Plus if you’re out in the boonies and run out of battery juice, you’re fucked. If I run out of gas in the boonies, I’ll fill it up with the 5 gallon gas can I got in the bed.
