Not really Joe. I gave myself a pat on the back when I done it but now I regret doing it.

No reason to be sorry - we “ get it “. Life does that to some people...not your fault that you have a need to keep up your jr. high level anger issues.

6686L Today (0ct 21 ‘19 I drove mine to a muffler shop to get a 2nd muffler installed “in series” with what came with the kit.

Of course both are “straight thru” so little or no back pressure. Still noisier than stock, but not by much, so I am pleased.

I do miss the fun of adding fluid to my DEF, And the excitement of having the DPF & related sensors....was so much more an adventure when that stuff was operational.

Not to worry - I love those “ pollution” controls. (although some say they actually cause a net gain in over-all environment damage). So out of my deepest affection for them, they now occupy an honored place in my store-room ...!

Ohhhhh Yeah.
Every time I landed on their site (doing an image search), every item that I was interested in....small print "ships in 2 weeks".

I emailed 'em with the obvious question

Response was "blah blah special, blah blah sometimes,...."
Called the local Fleet Pride shop, asked if they were a Dealer for xxx, "yep".
Ordered 'em on Monday, had 'em in a week.

Coreyj01 07 2500hd My truck is throwing the P0401 code. I cleaned everything and the valve itself was clean. Earased the code. Was off for a few days and came back on. Still the same code. Do you think the valve is bad? How do you tell if the valve is bad? Does anyone know where the egr temperature sensor is located?

D_R_C Leaving urea in the DEF tank when your no longer using, would be about the same as not draining and flushing your black tank on your RV when your not going to be camping for a while.
But considering the source, its understandable lacking commonsense and being dis-respectful it's very obvious his parents failed.

The DPF causes exhaust problems so it has to go. The DEF itself doesn't hurt much except that the software monitor has the power to kill the truck if it sees a problem so the DEF has to do.

May I suggest a slight correction to your outstanding and well-thought out post. Perhaps I am simply pointing out a typo error on your part. Be assured that not only can the DEF kill your truck's ability to work as a truck, the DPF can too!

In my case, my DEF has been trouble free for the 10,000 miles or so I have had my truck - as I noted elsewhere, it was the DPF that damn near got me killed ( or at the very least, been rear ended by one of the "big-boys", which would probably have shoved our five ton Bayliner cabin cruiser right into the cab of my truck...…!)

As for the Def tank, it’s not the tank I’m worried about, it’s the pump/heater/gauge inside. Dammit - I should have thought of that...excellent point...thank you! What do you think - I am going to go out to my truck and flush the damn thing with plain water, then add maybe a few ounces of water pump lube... - shouldn't that solve the problem>

Exactly why I’m keeping everything that falls off. We agree completely - hopefully, we in "non-inspection" areas are safe for a while, but who knows how much crazier the govt will get...;
