Let's mix these two and add 1 year for the last model year :D

In fact, a 1939-47 Dodge Job-Rated truck cab and front end. As Pickup never existed as model name, it could be a:
• 1939 T-Series, but the grille trim of this model year looks like a down pointing arrow;
• 1940 V-Series, but the grille trim of this one has a V-shape lower part, and this truck doesn't have the small park lamps on the headlamps;
• 1941-47 W-Series, all the more as it has the 1941+ cowl mounted park lamps (see VictorD's thumb).

1941-42 models had chrome bars in the lower part of the grille, scarce 1942-45 ones had no chrome at all (due to war restrictions), and 1946-47 ones had just the chrome cross. But as the truck in this movie is a "post-apocalyptic-neo-grunge-punk" model, I'm not sure these clues can really help.
No chrome at all, so let's say a 1942-45 "war" model or a 1946-47 one, as it's certainly easier to paint a 1946-47 grille cross rather than to take off the grille chrome bars.

Of course, we're just talking about the cab and front part of that thing, as it has obviously a lengthened "nose" and its underwear is more likely the one of some younger monster truck. The rear part is also some post-factory handiwork. Maybe the rear part of a tow-truck?
One last detail: the movie was apparently shot in Namibia, so some vehicles could be RHD. But this Dodge couldn't be a (1940+?) RHD Canadian D15, as this model never had the above mentioned cowl mounted park lamps.

If you watch closely, when Immortan Joe jumps the Big Foot over the War Rig, you can see that the front left wheel of the Big Foot starts to flip uncontrollably left and right upon landing, indicating it broke a tie rod and/or the steering linkage on impact. In the next camera shot, both front wheels are steering normally.
