Forgot to ad. If I woulda know that the EPA was going to come down hard on the diesel performance industry with a friggen week of me buying a 2012, I woulda waited and bought a 2013!

I seriously was considering dumping my brand new diesel for a 2012 Power Wagon, but they sell like hot cakes and jeep wranglers...

I personally wouldn't be too worried about the EPA if I spent that kind of money on a truck. I would be more concerned about keeping the warranty going instead. Just one set of injectors would make it worth keeping it stock.......
MBRP has some DPF back exhausts and I would think Diamond Eye would too.

I'm looking at the MBRP 'Black' series. I plan to get black wheels so it would match. My FLO PRO was extremely rusty after half a winter on my old truck. Need stainless. I've seen a few guys with 07.5 and up trucks locally that have had to replace their factory exhaust, DPF back, due to rust issues recently.

That sucks. For what these trucks cost the exhaust should last 10 years or more no matter where you are. Hopefully your truck will sound better.

Default Filter Back Exhaust System

Yep. 2 guys from work. Both where 07.5 trucks. One guy ended up deleting with a mini max instead of repairing it. (Repleaced the while system obviously)I forgot about that. Both only had around 60k also. I'll never keep this truck that long tho...ha

If you want to get un-bored just break something then the boredom stops and repairs start. Just upgrade whatever you break. But as I can see your pockets are not deep.

Default Dodge Common Rail Cummins Filter Back Exhaust System

I get bored driving the same thing all the time. Spent enough on the truck. My spare pennies get sucked into my jeep habit for the most part. Broken stuff and a few Comanche projects!
