Blackriver Trucks are available to buy from Radical Fingerboards. In case part of the truck is broken instead of needing to buy a whole new set you can buy First Aids packs. Many BRT users use the TKY blue bushings that are soft and allow for loose truck turning. They also come with a steel keychain tool that is high quality and doesn't wear out like TD tools.

Ytrucks do not always have trucks in stock and sometimes you will need to wait for them to be in stock if you want to purchase them new. Ytrucks now also come with 2 Torx allen keys, the Ytool is $20AUD extra.

China wides are commonly available and are often rebranded (eg. Dump Trucks, Propaganda). These types of trucks are usually customised with various things. Usually, soft bushings and bushing washers replace the plastic bushings. The hangers and baseplates are often mixed. Some companies also repaint these trucks. Lots of people add their own soft pivot cups as the trucks do not come with any. Older versions of these trucks have the kingpin poking out of the bottom of the baseplate so watch out for that as most new decks do not have kingpin holes.

Woodywood Fvcker trucks are from Indonesia and have had a slight revision since the first version. The widths of the trucks depend on the axle and there are 29, 30, 31 & 32mm versions. They also come with riser pads and they make some interesting slider riser pads too (probably inspired by the Tensor Slider skateboard trucks).

It does not include: China regular trucks, X-Concepts TD longboard trucks (~2000), Close Up G1/G2/G3, BRTs 1.0, Ytrucks X1/X2.
