"Every trucker's been there: you've held down your air horn for ten minutes straight, and still the solar-powered eco-cart in front of you is sticking to the speed limit. Thanks to the Phantom, their reign of tyranny ends where your 20-foot, easy-wipe steel wedge begins. Let freedom ring.

Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Jobuilt Phantom Wedge is a modified variant of the Phantom, featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Import/Export update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Phantom Wedge, as the name implies, is a modified version of the Phantom with a large, defensive metal wedge added to the front to ram vehicles. Its appearance appears to be heavily based on the Wedge Truck used by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman in their last episode of the popular show Mythbusters, in the Grand Finale, where they used it to plow through all the props used in their long-lasting run.

The Phantom's hood has been removed in order to fit the massive structure that connects the wedge to the truck, composed of welded bars placed on part of the front fenders and to the rear area of the vehicle. The Phantom itself appears to have a rusty appearance and now has two headlamps placed on the roof.

The vehicle's wedge makes the already-heavy truck a threat against other road users. Surprisingly, the Phantom Wedge has better acceleration and top speed than its basic counterpart, given that, instead of the traditional box-shaped engine, the Phantom Wedge utilizes a more powerful V8 engine, seen in the general shape, cam covers and manifolds. The badges are retained from the regular Phantom, stating it is a supercharged 24 valve engine, despite no supercharger being present. The vehicle's exposed engine means the visible timing belt functions, rotating the cams and crank, similar in fashion to the Fränken Stange and Tornado Rat Rod.

The Phantom Wedge can be practically advantageous over its similar counterparts with a similar feature, the Armored Boxville and the Ramp Buggy. However, like these two, it can be damaged by ramming multiple cars, leading to the disability of the vehicle. When the truck's engine starts to emit smoke from its sides, it means that the Phantom Wedge is receiving too much damage and its engine will stop working if the player continues to use it to ram vehicles.

Unlike the Phantom, the Phantom Wedge can carry three additional passengers on the back, with two sitting on either side ladders and one on the rear end, near the tow hitch. It is noted that, like the normal Phantom and the Phantom Custom, the Phantom Wedge can tow trailers if no one occupies the rear section.

As of the Arena War Update, the Phantom Wedge, along with the Ramp Buggy, were made significantly more durable even in Freemode as they now no longer take damage from ramming vehicles, allowing its full potential to be used freely with devastating consequences.
