1. Yes, some people do take their stuff with them on long road trips. It is probably a smart thing to do for sure.
2. DPF/DOC is the easiest and best way to go. If the DOC is still in place on the exhaust and the DPF is off, there is a chance that the DOC could get clogged down the road. Either way, if the DPF is off the truck or they are both off the truck, you can still get the $10,000 fine. Its part of the game with these 6.4's. We just simply can't remove them under the law. If you choose to do so, then you risking getting caught.
3. As for gutting out the DPF, I wouldn't do it unless you have a friendly dealer that doesn't mind the modifications to the truck. I also would't do it if you don't have another DPF available to you if your dealer isn't friendly and you have to take it in for warranty work. When you go in for warranty work, the truck cannot be tuned, therefore the truck has to be in stock form, which means the DPF needs to be able to function like its supposed to.
