90% of what people or scared of is just BS whipped up to a furry on the internet. Granted the early emission trucks had some issues, but I will say it again the late model trucks are just flat out incredible.
What is not BS is that at some point all newer diesels will have to replace the DPF. And when the delete kit is much cheaper than a DPF replacement and you get rid of the regen cycles and get better mileage/performance... what do you think most folks will do?
My brother buys multiple new ford f350s per year for his farms and the first thing he does is put delete kits on them. Doesn't even care about the warranty concerns. I find that interesting.
Are the new diesel awesome trucks? Of course! No doubt they perform better than my older truck. But like everything there are good and bad aspects of both routes. Scared of emission crap? No... just trying to stay informed.
