"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.

Note, the production model of this vehicle has reduced reinforcement.
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Jobuilt Phantom Wedge is a modified semitrailer truck 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 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 advantageous over the Ramp Buggy or the Armored Boxville, as not only can hit small vehicles with ease, but can depart other heavy vehicles with no problem. Its only downside is that the wedge makes the vehicle much longer than usual, being very tricky to navigate through alleyways, buildings other similar environments.

Prior to the Arena War update, the Phantom Wedge could be damaged by ramming multiple cars, causing its engine to emit smoke from the sides. If the player was still ramming cars after said warning, the engine will stop working, disabling the Phantom Wedge. This issue was shared with the Ramp Buggy.

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. Players in the rear section can switch seats when a slot is available, offering total coverage for defense with two-handed weapons (namely Carbine Rifles and Combat MGs), at the cost of being vulnerable to fall from the truck if it flips down or being hit by another vehicle.

Despite having no ballistic weaponry attached to the vehicle, the wedge is considered to be a weapon itself, meaning the use of Passive Mode is not allowed while in the Phantom Wedge; the same applies to the Ramp Buggy.

As with other special vehicles stored in the Vehicle Warehouse garage, the Phantom Wedge cannot be modified.
