I just got a 2011 and its fully stock and I want more power and better fuel mileage. Its relatively low mileage at just over 30k miles. Im in the process of getting my Class A CDL right now, and will hopefully get a trailer here within the next week. I want to delete it but since i live about 1000' away from a large DOT checkpoint I will get pulled over and I do not want any issues.


I have never had a problem, even in California. I have heard of people being checked for deletes but it’s always their mothers bothers cousins uncle’s friend Jim bob, never directly from the source...
In all the hotshot pages I frequent, I have never seen a single person get a ticket for it.
If you want to go the extra mile just for added insurance, you could gut the dpf and put it back on. That way everything looks stock.
Dot will check to make sure you have a muffler in some states. Iv had Colorado climb under my truck for that.

Good luck with the new venture! If you have any more questions there are a lot of knowledgeable people in this thread

I have been eyeing this exhaust and I have heard it on a friends truck, its not too loud. They do crawl under the trucks here. I see them break out the creepers all the time, that's why it concerns me. I'm in Texas and as far as a state inspection is concerned, they only do a safety inspection (lights, blinkers, horn and whatnot).

As long as your county doesn’t have emissions testing you’ll be fine.

I guess that answers my question. I was wondering if the black grill trucks came with a black surround but its chrome....I guess I'll keep looking. I want to totally black the grill and shell but can't find a shell in black.

I used this stuff to get my chrome black. Cleaned the chrome with denatured alcohol, then just shot this on. Hasnt chipped yet, and I have done plasti dip and spray paint previously, none of them last the winter, this bedliner in a can is absolutely awesome though..

Used that for rust mitigation under my mud guard on the front fender. Seems to be holding up great to the constant rubbing of the guard

I have an lml and it's stealth deleted (appears stock underneath) I'm also dot and have never been hassled. I can hook you up with tunes and advice on how to perform the stealth delete if you are interested.
