Extended Version of this video available to Premium Members of my website:

This is a video that I know many of you have been waiting for. I know many of you were excited for dad to see the truck for the first time after I finished all the work. In this video, you get your wish.

This officially marks the end of the #ETCGDadsTruck build, but it’s not the end of the story. I’m sure many of you are curious as to what caused the excessive crankcase pressure in (Episode 30). I plan to cover that in a future video (Episode 32) after I figure out what went wrong. Just give me some time to put that together and I’ll post it when it’s ready. Or you can find out sooner by following me on social media. Links at the bottom of the description.

For those of you that stuck with the build, thanks! I hope you enjoyed the journey, and learned something from the experience. I showed my successes and my failures during this build. I figure if you see what I screwed up, you wouldn’t make the same mistakes. I don’t mind ‘looking bad’ if it helps someone else. The main reason I make these videos is to help you.

That said, dad and I had a great time on the Power Tour 2019. There will be another video covering some of that. I didn’t record the entire tour. I was pretty warn out from the build, and I just wanted to enjoy the time with my dad. I hope you’ll forgive me for that.

Until next time. Thanks for watching!
