1977 Dodge D100 Transformed Into A Pontoon

What’s a boat and truck lover to do in their spare time? Put a Dodge pickup body on a pontoon, that’s what


  • The creation is known as the Dodgetoon.

  • The “thing” is a cross between a Dodge pickup and a pontoon.


Necessity is the mother of all inventions, and having time to go ahead and innovated can lead to many wonderful creations. At least, that’s what a man ended up with when he combined an old 1977 Dodge pickup with a pontoon.

Planning to get this project off the ground and in the water took about six months. The report, published by knoxnews.com, says that Josh Woodie, from Union County, Tenn, his brother and friends, spent two months of their free time putting this “boat” together, now known and christened as the Dodgetoon.

Other than being pickup that floats, the interesting part is that the “vehicle’s” controls are nicely integrated into the truck’s original steering wheel. The cab has been fitted with gaming chairs and the boat’s Johnson 115 motor’s throttle control is located between the front seats where a typical transmission shifter would be found.

The attention the Dodgetoon has clearly made the news. “Really, the best part is the reaction of everybody,” Woodie told Knox News. “Everybody that goes by is taking a picture of it when you’re on the lake.”
