Default Problems Being Del***d in Texas

Hey everyone (mainly folks living in TX with a del***d truck), I've heard that Texas is very tough on mod'd diesels. Specifically, I've heard that you can expect to be running down the highway and get pulled over, ticketed a crazy amount, & possibly have to get your truck towed if caught being del***d. I guess they'd notice by the exhaust or clearly if ya blew black smoke. That's frustrating and seems to be a little embellished to me. But, I'm moving to OK for about 4 yrs, plan to drive around in TX sporadically, & plan to del*** my new truck soon. So, I thought I'd see what I could learn from y'all on here. I appreciate any solid words of advice/ experience.

Lots of guys running trucks that way here, I'm sure if you're obnoxiously smoking, you might get a ticket, but doubtful.

This is the first I’ve heard. I don’t intentionally blow smoke, or at least don’t desire it. However, it happens when I punch it and the motor is loaded; it has happened in front of cops. There are businesses that advertise ****** stuff here. I was concerned about it, knowing the “rules”, but did it anyways.

I haven't been pulled over or had any issues being del3ted and I drive around different parts of Texas plenty. Truck is usually loaded and sings a pretty decently loud tune most of the time. Truck doesn't really smoke tho.

I get mine inspected at a Strouhaul tire by the house and they have never ask or mentioned the fact that it's del3ted.

Don't worry about it and just run it.

'Preciate it gents, the person that told me was an older guy, at my chosen local dealership truck shop. He's a diesel guy & has been working on em since non-turbo 7.3s. But, he works at a Ford dealership and his '11 is bone stock. I trust a lot of what he says, but not everything.

They dont even open my hood for emissions, it is just a safety check.

I burn clean though, no smoke.. That is for the flat brim cap folks.

They have gotten pretty tight on safety inspections down here. My guy used to just slap the sticker on my truck and off I went, now every bulb etc...and even told me my tint on front windows is not compliant (pretty sure I'm 35%) so emissions could be next. Not sure any shop is set up for actual testing though and certainly 95% of law enforcement wouldn't know 100% if you are compliant or not by just looking at the truck. As others have said, wouldn't fret over it.

I still have everything intact, but at 86K miles and the way I drive, I am leaning towards Jenny Craig-ing soon. I take mine to a Lube shop known to work in a Jiffy near I10 and Callaghan Rd here in SA and last year when I asked the manager she told me, "even if I did have to check, I wouldn't know what to look for". Mine is coming due so I will be interested to see if they apply any more scrutiny this year.

I'd say it is the opposite of what you've heard with a few exceptions.

Texas has the TxDPS and TCEQ tattle tale call in & report a vehicle programs, depending on where you are there is anything between a very good chance and next to no chance to get ' called in on ' & reported.
The statute is - if a vehicle produces visible exhaust emissions for more than 10 seconds.
If your license plate # gets more than a few calls even under 10 seconds you certainly can get a visit or if they receive a video or two of you being a coal rolling goober smoocher you stand a very good chance.
Really any place you can get called in on if you purposefully go around blowing smoke like a toothless friend of Neal & Bob.

Although it is quite rare, if you get caught the penalties can be very stiff.

Anywhere within 40-60 miles of Austin and the affluent areas in the DFW area Houston, & San Antonio the bunny huggers have those # in their contacts & are quick to call in.
unless your near a bigger city you pretty much gotta be acting a complete dipsh!t.

Abput 10yrs ago or more there was a dpuche nozzel dps officer in between austin and satx that was targeting diesel trucks.... back in the 6.4 days. He dissapeared or quit writing tickets. He was ticketing 7.3 truck for removing their ***s.... that kind of bright crayon. I see alot ******d and nobody seems to care. I would prefer to look stock personally to avoid attention. I also would refrain from saying where i got inspected as they do watch groups for things like that and do stings. I doubt short of being obnoxious anyone would even notice

Yep it should.. unless they profile you.. lol..

Thats how i got popped in new york. Now i have added a resonator and a Donaldson muffler, debadged the doors and the platinum down the bed sides and have a axle dump..... unless you hear it under load and can tell its turbo whistle then that is all you hear. No drone. Not any louder than my brothers 6.2 gasser with a flowmaster muffler on it. I may even put a e85 gas cap on it and pluf the d e f cap hole and remove the fill tube so that if they look inside the fuel door it will look like a gasser. Lol... maybe not that far but i did check and see if my brothers gas cap fit on my diesel cap. And it does. Lol

Sure. But if what i have done to it fools them then the exhaust at idle wont be detected either because they wont know the difference between gas fumes or diesel fumes.

Iíll just leave this here...



North Texas. Step son got pulled over for illegal window tint on windshield. Troopers first words were ďyour truck small dereted, is it?Ē He acted stupid and said it was like that when he bought it. Cop asked him to show him where the D-P-F filter was, so he played dumb again and said he didnít even know what that was...lol. Cop was a huge douche and wrote him tickets for his front door windows being 21% vs 25%, then wrote him warnings for the emissions including not having a muffler which he has.

2013 D-max Denali.

His doesnít sound any different than stock until you get on it, doesnít smoke a bit, and doesnít smell.

Mine stinks! Guess Iíll turn mine off when I get pulled over...

Dang, seems like the tint is why he got pulled over, but still. Heck, I got pulled over in Charleston SC a few months back for accelerating to quickly (new to 2nd gear TC lockup tunes at the time & trying power levels with intended easy accelerations). ...verbal warning went a couple clicks back on the SOTF... I always turn mine off immediately, just to show I don't have intentions of running. None the less... thanks for the info

Yes and no on the window tint. I drove it the other day and honestly couldnít notice it was tinted.

We have an annual festival going on this week one town over from where I live called germanfest, and the troopers are notoriously horrible that week due to all the beer drinking and partying goin on. He said the cop originally said he pulled him over for the side windows which are barely darker than legal.

The side windows on my truck are 9%...lol. I de-badged it and may throw a flexfuel badge on the tailgate...if nothing else for sh!ts and giggles.

It might be a compromise, but I think if you dropped the DPR a really good muffler will help with noise and coaling...

Wow, I was on the phone and didn't read a few of the post above me, seems to me like Texas might be a place to avoid....

Smh that any of us feel the need to think this far into it. But, then again, I'm quite proud that I drive a Powerstroke and nothing else. Well, that and I am generally bull-headed and don't like others telling me what I can and can't do with my money/truck/only hobby, unless I'm being dangerous or a general a**-hat. Meh, life I reckon... first-world problems eh

Yeah, this has gotten more entertaining/educating than I'd imagined it would, for sure.

Agreed. Like Iíve said many time...of all the frac crews I have worked with in the last 7-8 years, and the thousands of frac trucks Iíve been around, I have yet to see someone pouring D-e-f fluid into one. Have yet to see a D-P-F filter adorning the exhaust.

Havenít ever seen a conductor topping off the d-e-f tank on a locomotive either. What about those ocean liners rolling a sh!t ton of coal, or the 1972 peterbilt that billows out black smokes at idle?

Quit fukin with the ďsmall guysĒ and go after the big fish that would actually make a difference.

Iím with you. My truck and my money. Iíll do whatever I damn well please to it and the Guvment can suck it!
