So you’d rather have a truck that’s got a clogged DPF, reductant heater issue, weak turbo due to a plugged DPF, etc?!? Either way… you’d be hard pressed to find a 2011-2016 on the market that’s not deleted.All it takes is for your state to mandate that all cities and counties enforce emission standards with test.
Then if you don't have the parts you are screwed. There are a number of members here on this and other forums trying to find the parts that they threw away.
Plus if I was looking for a truck I would never purchase a deleted truck even if I lived somewhere that there were no emission testing.
