How Do You Make a Simple Lego Pickup Truck?

Lego building is a fun and popular hobby, but building a Lego pickup truck can be a bit more challenging than some of the other Lego sets. But with some patience and a few simple steps, you can make your own Lego pickup truck.

Step 1: Gather the pieces that you need. You will need several pieces of different colors, sizes, and shapes to create your truck.

Look at the instruction manual that comes with your set to get an idea of all of the parts you will need.

Step 2: Start building the frame of the truck. Start by connecting two flat plates together using two studs on each plate.

Then attach four more studs to each side of the plates to create a rectangular frame shape.

Step 3: Attach two longer flat plates to each end of the rectangular frame for the sides of your truck bed. Then attach four more studs on each side for extra reinforcement.

Step 4: Add wheels to your truck bed. Put four wheels in place, two on each side and attach them using two studs on each wheel.

Step 5: Connect two flat plates together using three studs on each plate, forming an L-shape. This will be used as the cab for your truck.

Step 6: Attach one side of your L-shaped cab onto one end of the rectangular bed frame with four studs.

Step 7: Use flat plates and sloped pieces to create the roof and sides for your cab.


With some patience and a few simple steps, you can easily build a Lego pickup truck! Gather all of the necessary pieces, start by creating a rectangular frame for your bed, add wheels, then use L-shaped pieces to form the cab before adding any extra details like roof and sides. With this guide in hand, creating a Lego pickup truck won’t be so difficult after all!
