The 4WD has both high and low, differential
We are finalinzing pricing this weekend, but MSRP is 13k-15k..we provide both dealer and customer financing available.
Booking trade shows and signing dealers now.

This veicle looks like a Dongfeng Machine?????
It's so light in the back that the rear tires are actually off the ground! In the picture, at least. Maybe the Chinese truck builders should look into levitation next?
I currently own 3 Chinese 150cc ATV's built in 2005, and all 3 still run, to varying degrees. (I got a "great deal" on them!) 2 run great for driving down the dirt road I live on to get the mail, but I would NEVER try any kind of stunt moves or jumping, based on the crappy metal and shoddy welds. The third has pretty much become a parts source for the other 2. Mostly because parts are unobtainable.
These Chinese "knock-offs" are really just money-pits. There is just about ZERO parts support, and they are crudely made.
No offense to Chinese people or companies, but your stuff is a "one-time" shot, at best. If something breaks, you better have parts for it yourself, or just toss it out!
I hope this latest Chinese foray into minitrucks will turn out better. But I am doubtful.
Just so you all know, yes, I am the type who likes "different" things that set you apart from everyone else. I currently own 3 AMC Matador Coupes, one 1974 and two 1975's.
So, not against being "different", but what does that get you when you can't actually use it and show it off?
Good post Renchjeep. You are very smart!!
Yeah, I was defending the Chinese truck products just a bit in the beginning, but now they have evaporated! I thought maybe it was time to see what they had developed, and at least give them a chance.
Sorry, Chinese truck guys, but this is the truth............WHERE ARE YOU?
Where are your dealers and parts support?
I guess about the same place as my Chinese ATV parts and support department are!
SAD disappointment, once again.
It may be hard to find Japanese Minitruck parts, but it is POSSIBLE!
WWW is great for finding ANYTHING! But it is a bit difficult to find parts for my 94(?) Mitsubishi Minicab 2wd left-hand drive at times. Especially things like tail light lenses.
I know, it is a bit old, and lefty 2wd models were used pretty hard on golf courses and educational/government facilities. Lots of bashing and breaking of things went on, not leaving a lot of good parts around.
Someday, I will have a newer 4wd model, and learn to drive from the right (or "wrong") side! Until then, the long parts searches will continue......
The BUT guy sells them and he says they are just as good as the Japanese trucks. He says he has found the only good manufacturer in china. He says the electrics and the gas are both dependable. BUT stands for Best Used Tractors and it is not the answer for where you will find the owner of any Chinese Minitruck
BUT = Buried Under Truck
DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON CHINESE HEAVY INDUSTRY MANUFACTURING.
I will pay anyone to take a 90 degree corner at 35 on bumpy pavement. There is a reason why they do NOT sell 3-wheelers anymore.
I know the Chinese mansfrs. are just taking advantage of US law (again) with this latest product. I have talked to people on the phone that have bought them.
Interestingly enough they LOVE "it", but they mention in the next breath that "it" is for sale.
THESE three wheel cycles are the devices that SHOULD be speed limited to 25. Isn't that the funny part.
why is this tread still open? does anyone even own a Sokon?
Why ... in hopes that someone actually chimes in someday .... actual vendor and/or dealership, maybe a owner
I'm still waiting
We have started carrying parts for these trucks since most of the Chinese truck owners can never find parts and to be honest I am shocked at how many of these are actually out there
