Many people choose to buy a pickup truck because of its versatility. It can be a passenger vehicle, yet it is rugged enough to haul a wide range of items from debris, soil, equipment, and tools. However, it is easy to damage the truck bed without protection because of the various things you load into it. In addition, the floor surface can have holes, dents and scratches, which can mar the otherwise pristine appearance of your truck.
Once you have a short list of vehicles you like, your next step should be going in and test driving each one. Actually getting behind the wheel of a vehicle can tell you a lot about it.
