Pickups & Mini-Trucks magazine was a re-titling Pickup Van and 4WD. It addressed the strong market interest in sport trucks and mini-trucks in particular.
Pickup Van and 4WD was originally started by Bond/Parkhurst, but Petersen Publishing purchased it in mid-1982. Numbering for this title continued from its predecessor.
In the 1970s, Petersen had produced a series of one-shot magazines with the same Pickups & Mini-Trucks title, so it is fitting the title was re-used in 1984. Petersen only published fourteen issues.
