==Design==
The car appears to a [[wp:rat rod|rat rod]] version of the [[Duneloader]] and features very strong design elements from the 1930s or 1940s. The truck cam be found in good condition or poor condition and resembles the [[wp:Dodge Power Wagon|Dodge Power Wagon]] from the late '40s. It could also be based on the [http://happydaysbucket.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/16902.jpg 1938 International Harvester D2], or Soviet 1950s [[wp:GAZ-69|GAZ-69]], [[wp:ZIS-150|ZIS-150]] and [[wp:ZIL-157|ZIL-157]] truck. Judging by the grill and the overall military-esque appearance suggests that it is likely a military surplus vehicle from the World War era

The Bravado Rat-Loader is a pickup truck in Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

The truck appears to be a rat rod version of the Duneloader and features very strong design elements from the 1930s or 1940s, resembling a Ford Pickup from the early 40's.

AscontiAdded by Asconti
The truck features a ramshackle flat bed covered with random trash, but can be given a standard bed at Los Santos Customs. The Rat-Loader features crooked and bent front and rear license plates, a crooked front grille with missing and bent bars, and a bent hood. The stock Rat-Loader has rusty "Smoothie" wheels wrapped in discolored offroad tires. The truck has no bumpers, front or rear, the license plates are instead mounted on the bars the bumpers would normally connect to. It also features a rusted and faded paint job. The Rat-Loader has no reverse lights, turn signals or brake lights, as it has no tail light cluster.

Most of the above damage can be repaired at Los Santos Customs, or, if desired, further damage can be added in the form of removing additional body panels. However, no matter what, the faded and rusted paint job remains. It can also be given hot rod style mods to make it resemble a rat rod pickup.

PerformanceEdit

Although the Rat-Loader comes with a modern V8 engine producing a fair amount of torque, its weight and very thin tires make it prone to wheelspin both off the line and on the way as well as giving it very poor braking. The old suspension and direction setup also cause it to have a very big turning circle causing massive understeer and making low-speed maneuverability quite the challenge.

TriviaEdit

  • It's one of the oldest cars in the game, along with the Duneloader, Z-TypeHotknife, the old Tractor and the Roosevelt.
  • Strangely, the Rat-Loader contains a CB radio. When in the car with the radio off, indistinctive chatter can be heard through the radio. This is also the same with the Bodhi and the Tow Truck.
  • Even though this vehicle is a pickup truck, it is classed in-game as Muscle, likely on account of the more modern, high output V8 and hot-rod like characteristics of the vehicle, making it more closely related to a muscle car than any other class.
  • After patch 1.07, it couldn't be stored in players garages online. Rockstar have fixed this in 1.10 as it is completely free to modify at Los Santos Customs and can be stored again. It can even be bought for free after the New DLC is installed.
  • When getting in the vehicle, it simply says Rat-Loader, despite being manufactured by Bravado.
  • Inside in the interior under the steering wheel, a Vapid logo is clearly visible, despite being a Bravado vehicle. This is also the same with the Duneloader, and may likely be an oversight.
