Don’t let the title of “Starting the Truck” fool you. Frankly, Justin Lofton actually starts his 1,100-horsepower monster with the touch of two modern PDM (Power Distribution Module) switches. However, he offers a simple but complete lesson on how important it is to do a complete vehicle walk (think a pilot doing the same with an aircraft). Then he moves into his Jimco-built Trick Truck, showing off all of the data acquisition features, including up-to-date tire pressure monitors and GPS systems. With digital everything, there isn’t an analog AutoMeter in sight.
