Truck looks great! What kind of tires are those?

I am subbing this thread as I am in the same boat so to speak. first diesel ever and not happy with what the government mandated addons, dpf and egr, etc. has done to performance.

Does anyone know as to the legality of doing the deletes? I am not opposed to a little civil disobedience if it comes down to it.

Thanks!

it depends if you have emissions testing in your state. If you do it will not pass emissions and everytime you have to get inspected you will have to put stock exhaust system back on and its kinda a PITA. I have yet to hear of anyone getting a ticket because they put goodies on their trucks though.

That does look sick! Looks like a cross between a Toyo and Dick Cepek tire. I like it, sipes in the middle of the lug pattern? NICE! The red really makes it pop too. Guessing a 5" Zone kit? May wanna grab a tuner while you can though... They are selling fast with the production stop that happened with them. I've heard of a bit of sand bagging going on with them too. So buy one while you can afford to do so. I've also heard that every truck reacts different with every tuner? I'm personally buying two different tuners for my 06'. Seems everyone is crazy about Smartys? Enough that I'm kinda scared of them.

What is a DPF and EGR delete? What do they do, do they affect warrantee? And what kind of performance gains are achieved? I'm mechanically inclined , but I'm afraid I don't know a lot about what all these parts of a Diesel engine do.

dpf is diesel particulate filter and its part of the emissions crap they put on these new trucks. As well as the egr is part of the emission system. As for warrenty it depends on your dealer because some are mod friendly now and will look past the add on but most of the time your warrenty will be voided since you are completely getting rid of all emissions. As for performance gains you will be smiling the whole time because it will make your truck a completely different animal . Mileage will drastically improve I have heard and seen guys gain 5 mpg or more by doing the deletes majority of the time it more gets them into the 20-21 mpg hwy range.
