If the truck is running like it should....YOU DON'T!!!!
Common answers include
1. Put a bag over your intake.
2. Unplug your VGT.
3. Light your truck on fire.

I don't recommend any of these.
Smoke is bad and you will find that out quick.

Careful bud, with the EPA cracking down lately on diesel owners and tuning companies this post might catch you a lot of grief. Just a heads up, dont take it personally. Its just that most of the members on here REALLY frown upon smoke unless its the result of mass horsepower.

I love these threads.. Everyone that has ever owned a diesel wanted it to smoke at one point.. and EVERYONE did smoke at one point. Let the man have some fun, he will realize one day that wasted fuel isnt as fun as he thought. Hell, my truck has never smoked, and i know for a fact, the day i get my STC tuner i will put a smoke tune on there to be "THAT" guy for a week or so.

This is true, at least for me. When I got my SRL I did all the time for a few weeks, never really did it around other traffic though, cause I know how dumb it looks when I see dodges laying a cloud all over the road. Just did it on back roads to get my fix lol. Plus I have the SRL which cleans up real quick and keeps me in check.

Not gonna lie, I will
BUT not on babies in strollers. Only where it's appropriate, i.e., where no one can see.

If you're laying down 500+HP, then yea, it's gonna smoke. But that's still on a dyno or at the track.
