08 Non-Emissions Trucks...Anyone Heard This???

As many of you know, starting in back in June I began my quest of "getting around" regen, DPF, cat, the whole nine yards.....well anyway along the way I have met and talked with many people, some have been strange, most have been normal, but all have been great and very helpful .....anyway the point of this thread is that I thought I would give some help back.... there is a rumor that there is a factory program from Ford that turns off regen. So there is no need for any of the new emission equipment. From my understanding some of these trucks are already out there, but they are "mining" trucks, whatever that means......any way there are some people who I'm talking to who are looking for these trucks....I know a lot of you work out in various fields....just wondering if any one had heard this rumor or seen this truck??? Thanks guys!

I live in Farmington NM and we have several large mines in the area. A good friend of mine owns a shop locally that works on the mine trucks. Last week I had the chance to look at one of the new 08 PSD's and from what I could see everything looked the same as my truck (just a work truck version). Do you know if they leave everything in and just change the computer code? Next chance I get I will go test one of the mine trucks out to see if it goes into Regen.

No they shouldn't have a DPF on there at all, maybe a cat at the most. Since the truck doesn't have regen to clean out the DPF, there shouldn't be one. Again this is just a rumor and from what I understand there is only a few trucks out there meaning that they will probably never leave the "mining site" since they are off road use only.....

Get a VIN number off of one of these “mining” trucks and run it to see what the build codes tell us.
I have a gold mine in AZ, maybe could use it to qualify.

Normally these never leave the mine site but they are brand new. My friends shop welds in a cage and installs the beds on them. They are towed from the Dealer to his shop then out to the mine. I checked out three of them while they were on the rack and all had the DPF. The mine was really concerned with the tailpipe tip as they are always in the mud and will get clogged. Maybe the next run of trucks will be the NON DPF trucks, Ill keep my eye out.

OHV vehicles don't need emissions so maybe theres a special version. Also to I've heard farmers or anyone with fields don't need to have cats on there trucks do to the risk of starting fires.

No but if I can find a lead at to where on is, then I can let some of the aftermarket guys know where they are.....because then they can see what they are missing or not doing right to turn off regen by going in and flashing the stock computer file off that truck. Then they can offer a regen delete with their performance.....and the best part is that it might be COVERED UNDER WARRANTY because its Ford's programming that has turned off regen
