Just wanted to add that the Canadian trucks should be buyer beware! Most have the def system disabled and many of them have a ton of hours compared to the mileage, I am told from the idling. I looked at one that was souped up big time but nobody was willing to work on it and someone took the tuner so I was going to have to replace it. Ended up with my Duramax and happy I did!!

Any truck that has the emissions deleted and tuned goes to auction , dealers by law can't sell them on the lot, this also holds true not only for Canadian but American also.
If you see a truck with tons of hrs and low miles on it ,most likely a oilfield truck, I would stay away from those.
If your careful and you know what your looking for you can find a good deal especially with the exchange rate now

It may be against the law in the US but they are selling them in Portland Oregon. They are telling people that they are not testing emissions on the diesel trucks in Oregon so it's ok and besides, you will get 3 to 4 miles more per gallon. Just saying,,,,,

Theres no emission testing here in Alberta either
When I traded my 2012 deleted Dmax for a 15 they told me that my trade would go to auction and would not hit the lot because it was tuned and deleted
Should have sold it private, sure took a hit
Oh by the way my Milage never improved in fact it was worse than when all the junk was on but the power was amazing
