This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Nobody will mistake your Sims for the gardener when they arrive in this pickup customized by Honest Doc's Auto Body. It features a new grille and off-road alloy wheels.

Complete the look with your choice of accessorys. You can choose several accessory sets using the second color option - included are off-road lights, a rollbar, big-rig style exhaust pipes, foglamps, a brushguard, and bed rails.

8413 polys (Original Maxis Pickup = 5695 polys)

This is a drivable vehicle - The Nightlife expansion pack or Numenor's Drivable Cars Without NightLife Mod is required!

This truck will perform just like the Maxis vehicles -

Mesh alterations and textures by Dr Pixel October 2005

Updated December 2008 to be compatable with Numenor's Drivable Cars without NightLife game mod.

This mesh was edited using Wes Howe's v2.16 MilkShape plugins.

Based on the Maxis Pickup from the NightLife Expansion pack.

Credit to Wes, Quaxi, Miche, and Delphy for creating the tools needed to allow me to do this and to Cevic, Vampcat, and Pinhead for information on the vehicle files.
