Government trucks

Been pokin around a few 6.4L Air Force crew cabs we have runnin' around base, and to my surprise they don't have a DPF. Kinda a hack job welded in pipe in place. Wonder how they tuned 'em?

Thats interesting. I checked out some AF crew cabs in Nevada several weeks ago and they all had the DPF stuff intact. Ford can tune them for no DPF, like out of country sales etc. Maybe the AF convinced them they were staying on base, never seeing public highway. Keep checking. Might come up with an interesting answer.

I've heard that military vehicles don't have to meet EPA standards. Ford probably does it for them I would guess.

Well i would assume they would have to meet EPA due to the fact most AF or Armed Forces vehicles get sold or replaced at 100k...just a thought curious but i would never buy a used military vehicle with some of the retards in the service today able to operate a vehicle on or off base.

Well found this piece of the puzzle the other day.

Air Force plates, not GSA.





Same tips though.



And this sticker on the drivers window.

When you get to make the rules you can have them not apply to you , like the House and Senators having exemption to any speed limit on their way to work

All stateside govt vehicles should be equip with dpf's/egr's and any other environmental constraint, unless that vehicle is designated as "military purpose" (HMMVW, M923, M915 etc...) or "off road." Any vehicle oversees is left to follow the host nations environmental policies and laws, many of which have none or very little constraints.
