Rivian R1T may have some competition from Tesla after all if this woman gets her way

OK, the title is a little tongue-in-cheek but check this out ...

"If you want an electric pickup truck, you sort of don’t have any options right now because none currently exist for the public to buy, at least here in the U.S. There’s the Rivian R1T, of course, but it isn’t available yet. And there’s the Tesla pickup truck which we’re told might happen this summer. So, if you want one now, you kind of have to build it yourself."

That's exactly what YT'er Simone Giertz did ... but used a brand new Tesla Model 3 SR and chopped it up. Link to article has video of how she did it (entertaining btw) and another video where she even made a production-like commercial to show it off.

Wow. She did a great job! Can we call it a cruck? With that front end, it retains so much car attitude. Now step away from the welder.
