For the pickup truck appearing in Fallout 4, see Pick-R-Up.

Pickup trucks are very common pre-War vehicles in the Mojave Wasteland and Zion Canyon.


These vehicles at one time had a traditional gasoline-powered engine (hence the jerrycan on both sides and the double exhaust pipe) which seems to have been retrofitted with some type of nuclear turbine system. There will occasionally be a container in the bed, normally a suitcase or a crate. One can be found pulling a boat at Callville Bay. They are dark blue-gray in color in the Mojave. In Zion, they are white with a green stripe down the side and a Zion National Park emblem on the door.


  • They can be found littering the roads, waterways, and parking lots of the Mojave Wasteland.


  • In the Mojave, they all have the same license plate, which is "J4M35M" and in Zion, their plate number is "000 000."
  • In New Vegas, similarly to patrol vehicles, they do not explode when shot at.
  • The trucks in Zion do not have the nuclear turbine conversion on them, unlike their Mojave and Commonwealth counterparts.


Pickup trucks appear in Fallout: New Vegas and Honest Hearts.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The pickup truck that appears in Fallout: New Vegas bears a striking resemblance to the 1950's style Ford F Series, the Chevrolet Advance Design, and the Dodge C Series pickup trucks made shortly after World War II.
  • "J4M35M" is leet for "James M," a reference to the environment artist James Melilli.
  • In real life, the truck would have had to be retrofitted with a nuclear engine, because it would not be possible (or make much sense) to have a vehicle from the 1950s to be produced with a nuclear motor stock. The same applies to the death car.
