California really has it in for small and independent truckers.
The company I worked for had two late model, (then, trucks that were required to get the filters if they were to remain in use in California. Both trucks were low mileaged so they sprung for the filters. $18,000 each. The moment they were out of warranty they both failed. (The first failure was literately one day out of warranty, one year and one day). CARB said tough shit, Diesel Emissions said tough shit.
Our company moved those two tractors to a business friendly state and leased a couple of new trucks.
The moral of the story is that our company was large enough to get through this, but no way could a small company or independent be able to lose this much money and keep going.
California is poison.
