    I live in Colorado and the Def system has been nothing but problem for me. What's the punishment for such a crime if it's illegal?

    Strapped over the fuel tank, beaten within an inch of your life and paying 10-15k to have it put back on, if caught.
    Dealers are supposed to report your deleted truck, and not touch it.

    If you run mostly northern states I feel you will be okay.

    ( it is illegal but it’s not really looked at up here )

    In North Dakota so many guys have their trucks deleted because it’s easier.

    Some guy posted the took the engine out and replaced it with a mechanical Caterpillar engine.
    Must have been a nightmare job getting the electrical harness figured out.

    He speaks truth. I was getting a wheel seal repaired on a trailer and that was one of the questions that the service writer asked me.

    If you have a truck with a DEF system, your best course of action would be to buy a truck that doesn't have that crap on it.

    Glad they don't give a crap about deletes up here (yet). If you guys think you have it bad down south in the warmth, try hanging out in -35 lol.
