The Rebel is a compact 2-door pickup truck which inherits the general design and role previously filled by the Bobcat in the 3D Universe (the HD Universe Bobcat is redesigned into a full-size pickup). The truck features a very linear design, similar to that of a third generation Toyota Hilux. It features a chrome bumper that spans the entire width of the front and also a short distance of the front quarter area. Above the bumper there are rectangular headlamp units. Just above the front of the flared wheel arch, rear view mirrors are mounted.
The main body features plain paneling, the main body line of the truck is completely straight, as evidenced by the bottom edge of the door windows. Behind the doors the cab features a window whose bottom edge is in line with the bottom edge of the door handle. The wheelbase is spanned by side steps, mounted just beneath the body. The rear section also features the same flared wheel arches. The load bed area has an impressed area near the top, leaving a ledge at the top of the body for the load bed area. The load bed area features a six-point roll bar, which may appear with four spotlights on top, mounted just behind the cab. The truck appears with eight spoke wheels wrapped in high-profile tyres.
The rear of the truck features rectangular rear lamp units, between these there is an impressed area with large embossed lettering of the manufacturer KARIN, in a similar manner to the embossed TOYOTA lettering on the rear of the Hilux. The vehicle has no rear bumper and therefore does not feature a rear licence plate.
There are two versions of the Rebel, a "standard" version and a dirtier, rustier version (referred to as the Rusty Rebel). The dirty version is far more common than the standard version, which is decidedly rare.
Some models are fitted with a CB radio, with indistinctive chatter audible occasionally.
