If you’re like many auto enthusiasts, you probably spend WAY too much time on good ole Facebook Marketplace. If that’s the case, then you no doubt come across some interesting vehicle builds.
Some of these builds are unique, interesting, ugly, and genuinely impressive at times. We found this 2006 Dodge Durango build inspired by a WWII Dodge WC53 Carryall that is the epitome of interesting and unique Facebook Marketplace finds.
The star of the build is obviously the custom front clip bestowed upon this beast. The front end appears to mimic a WWII Dodge WC53 Carryall, which is unique and interesting to say the very least. Unfortunately not much else is said about how the conversion was made possible.
The front bumper (like the rear), is sporting a BadLand ZXR 12,000 lb Winch. In addition to the custom front end, this beefy fella is rockin’ out with some Fuel Beast Wheels wrapped in a set of Falken WildPeak rubber! The wheel color compliments the Olive Drab Green paint extraordinarily well in my opinion.
Coming in hot with a listing price of $56,000 this thing is a bit shocking to say the least. Although, to be fair, I’m sure that the build probably cost close to that in total. It features a ton of custom accessories, my favorite being the jerry can on the rear hatch.
The rear is also sporting a nice lil’ 3500lb BadLand Utility Winch for when you get your fifty six thousand dollar Army Durango stuck off road (or whatever you do with a Franken-Durango like this).
Movin’ on up from the rear we’ve got a large roof rack with some auxiliary lighting attached too. I’m not sure what brand the rack or lights are, but I would’ve probably gone with something like the Kuat Vagabond Roof Rack here.
The one inexcusable downside to this build though, is the stock interior. With how extreme the build is on the exterior, it’s basically a war crime to leave the interior in stock condition.
I will say this is one of the cleanest 2nd gen. Durango interiors I’ve seen though (and it should be since this beaut only has 54,600 miles on the clock)!
This build obviously took a ton of time, effort, and money, and I have nothing but respect for those that pulled it off. I’d give it a solid 9/10 if it weren’t for the bland, stock, Mopar interior. With the lackluster interior, it gets a very respectable 8/10 in my book.
