"You won't worry about trashing this all-terrain pick-up truck - it's pretty much trashed already. At this price, just be grateful that the brakes work."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Karin Rusty Rebel is a two-door beater pickup truck featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Rusty Rebel is essentially a rusted variant of the standard Rebel. While identical in design and markings, it has rusty spots, patches and damage across the bodywork, in the same manner as many Beaters. The interior is also very beater condition. Torn dash material can be found, along with stains across the interior, and dirty door paneling, seats and the steering wheel.

One of the unique properties for this version of the Rebel is that it has a much wider range of customization options than the standard version, with a rally or off-road racing theme. These modification include assorted bullbars, extended wheel arches, and a variety of bed options including covers and roll bars. It is even possible to install a reinforced spaceframe that replaces remove most of the vehicle's bodywork and includes rallying equipment such as spare tires, tool kits and additional fog lights. With the space frame installed the Rebel's quarter panels, bed floor and sides and tail lights are all removed, leaving only the cab and front end (reinforced with additional framework) intact.

Again, the Rusty Rebel may spawn with the same roll bar options as its clean version, although the bull bar options are only available at Los Santos Customs.

The Rusty Rebel is fitted with a CB radio, and occasional trucker chatter can be heard regardless of whether the main radio is turned on or off. The chatter will only play if playing as Trevor and in Blaine County.

The general bodywork is painted with the single primary colour, while the "REBEL" and "4x4" markings are rendered as separated textures instead of a colorable part.

Grand Theft Auto V

The car shares a similar performance of the regular Rebel, being a nimble, fast vehicle with a small engine. However, being a rusty version, the car seems to take a bit longer at starting up its engine.

The car is powered by the same V8 engine as its normal counterpart. Unlike the regular Rebel, the Rusty Rebel has a petrol engine sound, instead of the diesel one found in its clean counterpart (as well as the armed variants). The engine sound is much smoother and valve/injection timing is more consistent.

An armed variant, named the Technical appears in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Heists Update. It has a DShK Machine Gun and a rusted appearance.

An amphibious variant, named the Technical Aqua, was added in the Import/Export update. It adds two flotation barrels on sides.

Notable Owners

  • Sacha Yetarian - During Sacha’s introduction cutscene in the Arena Workshop, he can be seen tinkering with a Rusty Rebel, to which he then confirms is his car.

Grand Theft Auto Online


  • The default radio station of the Rusty Rebel is Channel X.
  • The Rebel does not have reversing lights.
  • Adding the "Aero Bed Frame" modification and reverting back to the stock option will remove the default roll bars from the truck (if going up) or having the roll bars with the mounted lamps (if going down).
  • Despite having a different engine sound, NPC-driven Rusty Rebels still have the same diesel sound from the normal Rebel and the Technicals. In fact, bailing out from a player-driven Rusty Rebel causes the engine sound to switch to the diesel sound.
  • Any of the truck bed modifications (with the exception of the "Widearch kit" modification) will turn the tailgate invisible. This tailgate can still be opened with the Interaction Menu in GTA Online, and still has collision detection (characters can stand still over the opened invisible tailgate). Detaching it, however, will turn the same tailgate visible.
  • Unlike the standard Rebel, the rusty version has no option to change the license plate in Los Santos Customs, but it can be customized by using the iFruit App to change the license plate.


  • The "REBEL" and "4x4" markings often disappeared and reappeared constantly, due to an issue with the marking textures. This has been fixed in the Enhanced Edition.
