Find an 80 year old wh ore that buys her perfume by the gallon and let her live in the truck for a few days. You will not smell the smoke anymore.

Many years ago, I bought a used Corvette that just had a light smoking smell I thought would dissipate with some time. It didn't. I cleaned the crap out of it, didn't help. I ended up replacing the carpet and padding and leaving it in the garage with a light car cover and the tops off and windows down for a few MONTHS. It finally was gone after letting it air out like that. I didn't think it would have been that hard to get rid of it. They didn't have the ozone generators back then, I never tried one. I would never buy a smoked in used vehicle again, unless it was an insane fire sale price.

It’ll never be gone. Once you’ve run the ozone machine and all other attempt's you’ll think you got it, but then one day in the hot sun windows up you’ll open door and it’ll hit ya.

I’ve detailed many smoke suvs and cars and trucks and my ozone machine works. Work it one day then wait a few days use it again. If used too much it breaks down the rubber seals.

Yes, ozone machine. I purchased mine from Amazon around $84.00. Works great. Got rid of an almost empty overturned can of 2 cycle gas in the backseat of my wife’s Mach 1 (my fault). Tried ozium which didn’t get rid of it. After 3 hrs running it was gone.
