Hi everyone, I'm not mechanically inclined or a very handy guy, I'm trying to improve on it. I'm thinking of getting a used pick up truck so I can haul simple stuff around like lumber for small DIY projects. I have no idea how to tell if a vehicle is in good mechanical condition and am concerned about buying a lemon. Right now I'm aiming at spending $2000 Canadian Dollars (I'm in Canada) on a 99-2001 Pick Up Truck. I was hoping to get a long box with a canopy. Any tips?
