Re: Question for the purists

I have no problem with people adding options and printing up a new SPID to make them feel better.

I do have a problem with the truck inevitably being sold down the line as that being the factory SPID. We all know it's going to happen if you don't put "REPRODUCTION" on it.

Some states are passing cowl tag laws, with the tag being defined as any plaque or list of options and colors (etc), and that modifying or faking one is illegal in that state. Not all states yet, but it's still a legal and ethical problem.

To put my money where my mouth is, I considered doing it for my truck. In the end I left the factory SPID and build sheets untouched. So my truck has tilt and speed warning but they do not appear on the SPID.
