The Hoods Rumpo XL is a customized variant of the Rumpo used by the Southside Hoods, where it is notable that in Grand Theft Auto III, the Hoods Rumpo XL is larger than the standard Rumpo (thus the "XL" nomenclature). However in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, it is the same size as the regular Rumpo but with larger wheels. It is primarily distinguishable from a regular Rumpo by its paintjob.
In Grand Theft Auto III, the van's body features a total of three color tones (dull green, blue and red), and also features graffiti on both sides, while the Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories rendition features a white and yellow paintjob, as well as the aforementioned graffiti. In Grand Theft Auto Advance, the Hoods, which is also based on the game's Rumpo, differs with its grooves on the roof that run from the front to the back, as opposed to the Rumpo's grooves that cut across the van from its sides. It can appear in 4 different colors as opposed to the standard Hoods Rumpo XL in the other games.
There is a way to get a Hoods Rumpo XL without the graffiti through glitching or very rare occurrences, just like the lightless Taxi glitch.

The Hoods Rumpo XL handles neutrally and once it picks up speed, the van can go fairly fast. The acceleration is faster than the normal Rumpo, but strangely it is slower at top speed. It is also all wheel drive and can easily drive up steep hills like the one near the Shoreside Vale Safehouse in Grand Theft Auto III.
- Like other gang cars, it can be found all over Liberty City.
- The default radio stations of the Hoods Rumpo XL are:
- In Grand Theft Auto Advance, music played in this car is Slumpussy - "This Life" from N-CT FM, Grand Theft Auto 1.
- Gang Burrito - A similar gang vehicle based on a van.
