Dumb for not keeping emissions equipment. Then listed as deleted. Just wonder if he rolled coal at the wrong time. Got to wonder if someone from NJ DEQ replied to the ad and he boosted how much power and how cool it is to roll coal


You and others don’t see this as a sponsored publicity thing? Because that’s what it was.

I guess I missed that.

Who is sponsoring publicity for what?

This happened to one of my nephews in Jersey. Rolled coal, ticket, restored emissions, passed emissions, and paid ticket. He is a heavy truck mechanic, so it was easier for him than most. He now has a dedicated truck pull machine, but he actually competes. Tows the pull truck, with a street legal (I think!!!!) truck.

I had a 2008 Ram. People were telling me for years to delete it and put a tuner on it. I had to replace a turbo and the company I bought it from said I would need a minor tuner for it to run right. If I ran it on the lowest tune when not towing a heavy trailer it would clog up the emissions. With no tune it ran fine.
I sold it a few months ago with all of the exhaust intact.

The guys deleting these newer trucks are crazy. There is plenty of power from the factory to pull anything they are rated for. Adding more will only break things and cost you more money.


They're not deleting them for power.

They are deleting them to get rid of the "problematic" emissions equipment.


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

That’s why he just schlepping along with a plugged up exhaust.
PS, many add power too.
A 90hp tune makes a little ole 370/800 motor much peppier. Yee haw!

Everyone I know who talks about "deleting" wants to do it for power.

This is the reason, IMHO, that any truck smoking should be stopped and checked. If something has mal-functioned a fix-it ticket. Show court repaired, no fine. But if truck is modified, it ain't yours no more. 15 years now the manufactures have been selling "problematic" emissions equipment. If you buy one, and are not willing to deal with the problems, state should sell the truck to highest bidder that will keep it working right.

For a lot of people its not about adding more power, its about getting rid of the garbage emissions systems that make the truck problematic. I was coming home from Florida earlier this year when my DEF pump went out on my Ram. $2800 to replace the pump... That is insanity. For less then $600 I could have had a tuner that wouldn't have increased my power but would have circumvented the DEF and made my truck much more reliable.

The truck ran fine... until the EPA mandated boondoogle threatened to put me in limp mode while towing, 600 miles from home.

Another great example of the gubmint trying to be involved in every single aspect of one's life. And morons keep voting for the morons who promote it.


From what I see we just get to vote for what part of our lives we want interfered with. And the ones that call it gubmint are willing to accept interference in the most basic issues, as long as they can be treated better than others.
