Default Diesel truck at silver lake, do you need a muffler??

I know that one of the requirements of silver lake is to have a "spark arrestor muffler".
Is this necessary on a diesel??
Do diesel normally come with a spark arrestor muffler??
The turbo on my diesel quiets the engine down so much that i dont run a muffler, but i could definately put one on in order to go to silver lake.

Thanks in advance.

I believe the turbo is sufficient at "arresting the spark" on a diesel.

Nope, no need.
They've never hassled me at all. Of course, mine is twice turbo'd. It's that much quieter. :)
