The reason they don't offer certain things anymore is not to "screw" you, it's becasue they have stopped making what is not selling.
I give up you are missing the point, I as well as many others try not to buy things that i dont need and when i do buy things that i dont need i'm a cheapskate .It pisses me off that i am willing to pay alot of money for what i want yet is unavailable .my $ is better spent paying off my mortage than for neet little gizzmos and doodads that just add up to more chit to break and cost more$ I'm done with this hijacking session.
back on subject i dont know much about emissions stuff but how can an a truck that only burns one gallon of fuel per 20 miles be worse than one that burns one gallon per 14 miles maybee i,m just a stupid hillbilly but i think I need to start a company that builds the old 12 valve cummins engines and offers conversions
