I thought most diesel trucks going back to early '00 had some form of particulate filter, is was only the ones that require DEF that have an actual regen cycle?

My 03 Ford had a catalytic converter and some form of particulate filter with teh EGR system. However it never had a regen cycle.

My 05 Dodge had a catalytic converter but no EGR system.

I thought current Dodge models did not have the regen system either?

Me either, and when this current truck is dead it is getting a full rebuild but with only 90k it should be awhile

Even if the OP adds 1500 lbs to TT, he will still only be at 9600 TT weight, well below the 11,300 rated weight of a maxxed out Ecoboost. Dry tongue weight is 879, after loading I'd guess a 1100 tongue weight.

Point me to your dealer! Around here, there is a huge difference in price.

Like I said, the whole "Regen thing" was new to me (first diesel).
I do not use DEF in my 2008 but does have REGEN.
The error code found by OnStar had something to do with a clogged exhaust.

I had a 2010 F250 6.4L diesel. Loved the truck and it pulled great.
In the end, as a daily driver, it became unbearable to drive home from work (13 miles) only to start a regen cycle and have t jump on the interstate and drive another 20 miles so the regen cycle could complete. Speaking only for the Ford 6.4L (08-10), it was not meant to be a daily driver unless it was working and running down the interstate. I know removing the emissions would "solve" the problem, but voiding the warranty might have voided the marriage.

Rebuilding it may be a good idea as long as you don't live in Cali. The wingnuts out here may outlaw older model year commercial pickups just like they did with semi tractors.
