2011 Feed Truck Laid Down--

Well this spring we bought two new 2011's for work/feed trucks. An F350 regular cab srw 4x4 XLT and an F250 extended cab 4x4 XLT. Both are nearly identical with 6.7's/autos. The F250 went down this past week. It keeps coming up on the display reading "drive to clean exhaust filter". So we've driven it and it will come up and read "cleaning exhaust filter" followed shortly by "reduced engine power". No check engine light or anything, but it dang sure won't run. I can only assume the DPF is choked up or something. We've called two different dealers to make an appointment. Earliest dates open are the 17th and 19th. One told us it was okay to drive and the other told us we needed to decommission it immediately... So needless to say, it's parked at the moment with just over 12,000 miles on the clock. Haven't had a single issue to date until this incident. I'll have to check back and update once it goes to the shop. Just wondering if anyone else has had these symptoms?

Well one of them doesn't know what they're talking about obviously.
Third opinion?

We figured we'd better park it. I doesn't want to run very well, I'm assuming it's in limp mode. Better not to risk it. Just astounds me that there earliest available appt is still 10 days out. That's unreal. Good thing we have other vehicles to keep us going.

You betcha! Oklahoma red dirt as far as I can see. We hauled so much hay this summer. That trailer there is a 40ft tandem dual and I was only hauling 17 bales from the back loaded forward. We can haul 20 if we start at the front, but it puts alot of weight on the truck that way. Plus, that put us over 50k on a couple runs. But we had this 6.7 Ford and an 09 6.7 Cummins dually and it absolutely couldn't keep up with this truck. It would flat run away from that dodge and its got 3:55 rear ends. These new ones are the cat's @$$ for sure!
