A diesel truck owner's battle with the state of New Jersey is leading to the scrapyard. Mike Sebold initially received a letter from the state's Department of Environmental Protection after listing his modified 2008 Ram 2500 on Facebook Marketplace. Officials took issue with the pickup's deleted emissions equipment and, in turn, told Sebold his truck must be returned to stock or taken off the road. But even after he turned in his plates, Sebold claims they've forced him to make an appointment with the crusher.

They gave him the option of returning it to stock. His own stupidity that he circumvented the system.

Glad to hear an aftermarket modifier has paid the price for wanting a couple of extra horsepowers illegally. Rules weren’t for him, just us little people.

I deleted and raced a 2009 Duramax for a couple years, we kept the original ECM and all the emission parts to be reinstalled.
