About 4×4 pickups

Welcome to 4×4 pickups, this site came about simply because a few months ago I was thinking about buying a vehicle to do 2 things:
a) To take large amounts of heavy items, such as furniture and floor slates, to my farm in France, and
b) To carry large amounts of  heavy items , audio visual and film equipment, to various venues in and around the UK

And one of the types of vehicle I was looking at was a 4×4 pickup, and I got really annoyed that there was not 1 single place I could go to that could give me all the information I wanted.
So I decided to update my research and publish it so that anyone thinking about buying a 4×4 pickup could find all the information in one place.

Incidentally, I finished up buying a Citoen C4 Grand Picasso… why ? because it gives better MPG and I could actually fit under the steering wheel, you see what I had to find out for myself was that tall guys who are mostly leg find it really hard to get a good driving position in one of these double cab 4×4 pickups !!
And that’s something you don’t find out easily and without wasting a lot of time…..

So this is my contribution to saving you some time and bringing all the information you might need into one nice simple site, enjoy !!
