Gmade Reveals New Komodo Pickup

Gmade Reveals New Komodo Pickup

It looks like Gmade has started an Instagram account but the real news is that the first few posts are teaser shots of a new truck called the Komodo. Let’s take a look at this new beast…



If you look below the truck you can see that it’s sitting on a Sawback manual which suggests that the Komodo may be based on the same platform. The Sawback has solid axles, leaf spring suspension, stamped steel chassis and so on but based on the truck’s styling and stance I suspect that the leaf spring suspension and shocks may have been replaced by a 4-link suspension and coil over shocks. The tires are new and are those aluminum wheels? That’s a good looking tire and wheel combo!



Lots of injection molded parts such as a snorkel, cowl cover, mirrors and door handles give the Lexan body extra detail. The roof rack is a good looking piece and we hope that Gmade includes the shovel and sand ladders with it. If you look through the windshield you’ll see the same engine cover that is used in the Sawback.

It looks like the Komodo will come with an LED light set. If you look closely at the rear tail light you can see the tips of three LEDs. Even the rear bumper is an injection molded piece.

We really like what we in these teaser shots from Gmade and can’t wait to get the official press release on the Komodo to see what this new truck has to offer.
