Whether you are hauling for work or play, many people turn to pickup trucks to transport their stuff. Available in a range of sizes, from small, light duty to extended cab heavy duty, pickup trucks have an enclosed cab and an open cargo area with low sides and tailgate. A regular cab has a single row of seats and a single set of doors, one on each side. Extended or super cab pickups add an extra space behind the main seat, sometimes including small seats. A crew cab, or double cab, seats five or six and has four full-sized, front-hinged doors. The cargo bed can vary in size according to whether the vehicle is optimized for cargo utility or passenger comfort. Cargo beds are normally found in two styles: step-side or fleet-side. A step-side bed has fenders which extend on the outside of the cargo area. A fleet-side bed has wheel-wells inside the bed. A pickup with four rear wheels instead of two is called a "dually", which is able to carry much more weight over the rear axle and is often used for carrying heavy loads, campers, or supporting fifth-wheel trailers. Popular manufacturers include Chevy, Dodge, Ford, GMC, International, Mercury, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Ram and Toyota. Listings for used pickup trucks for sale can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s website.
