if you want to keep any aftermaket parts on your truck or car look at this and help
Just got informed yesterday of some senator trying to make all our lives a little harder. The alert was broadcast by SEMA, and is as follows. I encourage EVERYONE to pick up the phone or make a phone call on this one as it affects us all, especially in the diesel world (no visible smoke, etc.) - this law is BS and we need to all try and take a minute to let our wonderful ELECTED officials know what we think of this!!!

If this one gets through every one of our trucks will be subject to violating this LAW - not to mention what it will do to the economy in Utah for all the diesel shops selling these exhaust systems, etc.....

To view this in a nicer format, go here:


Utah Bill to Ban the Use of Aftermarket Exhaust Systems is on
the Move

A substitute bill (S.B. 106) to ban the use of most aftermarket exhaust systems has been introduced in the Utah State Legislature by Senator Patricia Jones ([email protected]) and passed by the Senate Transportation Committee.

The bill now moves to the floor of the Senate for a vote by all members. Under the substitute bill, all vehicles must be equipped with an exhaust system that is "installed by the original manufacturer of the
vehicle and is not modified; or meets specifications equivalent to the muffler installed by the original manufacturer of the vehicle and is not modified."

We Urge You to Contact All Utah State Senators (List Below) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to S.B. 106

• S.B. 106 ignores the fact that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions.

• S.B. 106 does not supply law enforcement with a clear standard to enforce, allowing them to make subjective judgments on whether or not a modified exhaust system is in violation.

• S.B. 106 fails to recognize that aftermarket exhaust systems offer increased performance, which can make a vehicle safer by improving its ability to merge, pass, travel uphill, etc.

• S.B. 106 would make it difficult for hobbyists to
replace factory exhaust systems with more durable, better performing options.

DON'T DELAY! Please contact all Utah Senators immediately by phone or e-mail to request their opposition to S.B. 106.
