DPF Sensors and EGR harnesses

Hey guys,
2011 F350 here. Just deleted my entire exhaust for an aFe 4" downpipe back + Mini Maxx. What have you guys done with your sensor wires from the DPF? I kinda just hooked mine to the frame, but wasn't sure if there are caps for them or if I should cover them with something for weather purposes.

Also. I plan on doing the EGR delete, but I don't have the time at the moment. I've unplugged the 2 EGR harnesses for the time being. Are you guys letting these hang? Zip tying them up? Covering them?

Thanks

Those sensors should unplug from the harness. I just zip tied everything. I also just let the 2 egr harnesses hang.

For the exhaust sensors I wrapped with electrical tape and zip tied to frame.

Egr plugs, just let them hang

I like this idea! Did you put dielectric grease on the plugs before the fact or no? Wondering about the condensation when it gets cold.


I'm assuming you all did the EGR delete as well after the fact. What kind of time frame am I looking at? If I were to have it done professionally, what kind of time would it take a shop?

Dielectric grease, cut the fingers off HD rubber work gloves and ziptied them around the plugs, including the egr plugs.
