you will need to rent a ozone generator. put it in the vehicle turn the truck on with the ac system on and let it sit for a hour or so and should be gone.

What worked better for me were "car bombs" , I bought them from a professional detailer supply house. It works like a bug bomb, you set the can in your car and let it spray. 2 hours later your car will smell normal.I did it twice, worked great. Only cost $5/per can. Simialr to this.

If you do use the car bombs, make sure to turn on your ac. I can vouch for the car bombs as well.

I 3rd the bomb things. My sister's dog was in my truck once, got scared, and fired off that potent anal gland stuff. I was pretty sure I would never get it out, but I did one of those bombs (with the A/C on recirculate I believe, as instructed) and it went away completely. Not sure if it will get smoke out since the smoke may be pretty embedded, but I think the bomb is probably your best bet. I have no idea what brand it was.

Good luck,
