Once you put something on the internet, no matter what it is, or how fast you delete it, it will be there forever if you know where to look.

Not if your name is Hillary!

There is no law against informing someone how to delete a truck. Not trying to be a smartaxx

Have you considered having the DPF cleaned? It’s substantially cheaper than replacing it.
The process involves putting the DPF in a Kiln for 1 or more cycles to “bake” it. Kind of like a cleaning cycle for your oven at home.
You could have this done for probably less than $500 (don’t quote me on that) and from what I understand the DPF is restored to like new.
This would not only be cheaper than deleting, but much easier & less headache/stress.

These days by giving advice you might as well put a target on your own back.
How do you think the tuners got busted, to many big mouths bragging about who did their delete tuning along with all the mods.
Including me.
If they want to know let them search the subject, I’ve had a few PM’s the past couple of years with way to many questions that ended up being suspicious.
One even wanted to chat on the phone about my mods and who did the work.
There is a small difference in old searched info vs fresh out of the box info.

I was watching an episode of Gold Rush today. They are in the Yukon so EPA doesn't apply. They had a diesel pump that kept shutting down because it updated its firmware over the cell phone network and the new firmware had a bug that detected problems that weren't there. It had all of the same parts that our trucks have including DPF, DEF, EGR with a cooler and a CAT. They tried resetting it to the factory specs but an hour later it reported that the DPF had a 131% soot load and shut down again.

It took half a day and a software update but they got the pump back up and running. Funny how so many emissions controls are so poorly attached that they just fall off all of the time. Not just on truck but on pumps too. And the down time was only worth about $5000.

If I was younger I'd think about moving to the Yukon and opening a diesel engine rebuilding business. I can imagine that a lot of people are going to want to keep their older engines running for as long as they can now.
