Just a question for all the CA residents driving diesels. CARB requirements for all diesel trucks (registered in any state).

As I recall reading, CARB via CHP? can stop any diesel vehicle and do a opacity test of your exhaust and also check to ensure your engine and all emissions components meet CARB requirements and certifications.

I know I am one person who will not travel in CA anymore as my truck has non-CARB certified modifications. It also does not have the CARB required DPF filter in the exhaust system not will I modify my truck to have one. No DEF, no regen cycles. I'm legal in Illinois where I live.

Apologies for the rant here but it is something to consider when travelling in CA with diesel TV's.
