What is the truck?
The Pickup is based on the 1973 - 1987 Third generation Chevrolet C/K truck (also known as Silverado and “square-body”). The model of the truck is almost identical to real-life equivalent with some minor differences. Some of the differences include the grille, fender flares, and flared skirts. There are two variations of the truck in-game a open bed variation and a topped variation (known as a "Blazer" or "K5"). Chevrolet C/K trucks where categorized by weight capacity and 2WD or 4WD, and then designated with a C/K code. A "C10" was a 2WD half-ton truck and a "K30" was a 4WD full-ton truck. 3rd gen Chevy C/K vs 6th gen Ford F-series

- ...so which is it? We have one person saying it's x, then another person saying it's y. To be honest, it looks a lot more faithful to a 3rd gen Chevy C/K, albeit with a few differences here and there, probably for artistic license, copyright issues or both. I've moved the IRL info to the trivia section and since there's quite a bit of photo evidence showing that it's heavily modelled after the Chevy with bits of a Ford Bronco mixed in (e.g. one of the available colour schemes), I've updated the page to reflect this. --Edbods (talk) 04:45, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
