If you’ve never owned a pickup truck before don’t just go out and buy a used one without making sure it has a few essential features and equipment that'll make driving your new pickup easier and more convenient. When it comes to trucks, it's not about the make or model but about the equipment.
Make sure that the used truck you're looking at comes with appropriately sized mirrors. Today’s trucks come with what they call trailering mirrors that extend the visibility of the driver onto either side for better peripheral vision. Some trucks come with even larger mirrors to improve sight lines while towing things. If you're buying a truck for the first time but don’t plan on doing any towing or heavy duty work it is still highly suggested that you buy a truck with extendable mirrors to avoid backing up into obstacles that may present themselves unexpectedly. When you're sitting in a monstrosity of a truck it can be difficult to see what's going on in the outside world, particularly if you are towing something behind you.
Off-road accessories are another must have in your new pickup truck. Some of these include underbody protection and tow hooks in case you ever plan on taking your truck off the pavement. Also, you won't have to spend much on these items as they're not very expensive for the modern pickup truck. Make sure you have some off-road accessories installed in your brand new truck before your friends start making plans to head out onto the trails.
If you have a camping trip, road trip or any other major outdoor activity coming up soon, think about treating yourself to a durable and sturdy used pickup truck from Tim's Truck Capital.
