Did he give you a ticket for anything?
Stacks being illegal is news to me and if your truck didn't come with a cat it's not required to have one as far as I know. Your truck passes smog without it right? As far as the muffler thing goes I would think as long as it doesn't exceed the allowable db rating that shouldn't be an issue either

I have never heard of stacks being illegal. As for a cat, our trucks didn't come with one so its not illegal. You live in Reno, you don't even have to smog your truck do you? I don't think that cop knows what he was talking about.

These are the only Nevada Laws that I could find regarding exhaust/emissions/mufflers. There could be federal laws (Commercial Vehicle) that may apply, some of our trucks might fall under commercial vehicle laws. I'm not an expert with those, sorry. Here's a link to the Nevada Law Library index....

NRS: Titles and Chapters

Good Luck
Mike


NRS 484D.415 Mufflers: Prevention of emissions.
1. Every motor vehicle shall at all times be equipped with a muffler in good working order and in constant operation to prevent emissions greater than those allowed by rules and regulations established by the Department. No person shall use a muffler cutout, bypass or similar device upon a motor vehicle on a highway.
2. The engine and power mechanism of every motor vehicle shall be so equipped and adjusted as to prevent the escape of excessive fumes or smoke.
(Added to NRS by 1969, 1208; A 1971, 921)—(Substituted in revision for NRS 484.611)

NRS 484D.535 Device for control of pollution: Use required; disconnection or alteration prohibited; exceptions.
1. Except as provided in subsection 2, a person shall not operate or leave standing on any highway any motor vehicle which is required by state or federal law to be equipped with a device for the control of pollution from motor vehicles unless the device is correctly installed and in operating condition. A person shall not disconnect, alter or modify any such required device.
2. The provisions of this section do not apply to:
(a) An alteration or modification found by the State Environmental Commission not to reduce the effectiveness of the required device.
(b) Motor vehicles which have been licensed by the Department as experimental vehicles.
(c) Any vehicle which has been granted a waiver or exemption from the regulations for the control of emissions from motor vehicles.
(Added to NRS by 1971, 1203; A 1973, 5, 1705; 1979, 568, 1034; 1985, 340, 1954)—(Substituted in revision for NRS 484.644)

NRS 484D.540 Device for control of pollution: Penalty; proof of conformity may be required. Violation of the provisions of NRS 484D.535 is a misdemeanor. Whenever any motor vehicle is found by any peace officer to be in violation of the provisions of NRS 484D.535, and a notice to appear or citation is issued, it may require that the person named therein shall produce in court proof that such vehicle or its equipment has been made to conform to the provisions of NRS 484D.535.
(Added to NRS by 1971, 1203)—(Substituted in revision for NRS 484.6441)

This may be the reason for the stop and now since you have stacks, the smoke from the exhaust is now more visible. Before you go and get excited about all our diesels smoke, the law is the law and the stop probably was justified.

He might have just wanted to check out your truck, can you blame him?

Under Nevada Law, I really don't think the stacks themselves are illegal.

The stacks don't allow any more smoke to escape than a rear exit exhaust, so no laws broken there

Don't know the law's in Nevada but in California its where the exhaust exit the vehicle. If you have stacks like a big rig it needs to exit 12 feet high from the ground. Any exhaust exiting the vehicle out of the side or back of the vehicle, anything over 2 feet high needs to be pointing down towards the ground.
