Problem removing sensors from DPF

I'm planning to delete my DPF tomorrow.

I've deleted a half dozen 6.4 trucks and on two occasions, had sensors that had been over-torqued from the factory, resulting in VERY difficult removal and stripping the threads on the sensor.

Have any of you who've deleted your 6.7 DPF experienced trouble removing the sensors?

Do you recommend zip-tying the sensors up to the bottom of the truck/frame or can the sensors be left in the DPF (won't have to worry about stripping the sensor threads) and easily unplugged from the wiring harness?

I just left all my sensors in the exhaust and just unplugged em and drop the exhaust out all in one piece. The hardest part for me was putting the new exhaust in my flow pro box was dropped or something cuz a couple of the pipes didn't slide together very nicely I had to grind and sawzall some stuff. If you damage a sensor and for some reason need one just send me a pic and ill mail ya one of mines.

I'm assuming that the sensor harnesses connect to a main harness running along the frame (haven't actually looked yet). Is this correct?

If this is correct, are the connectors visible / accessible or are they wrapped with tape or inside a plastic conduit.

What did you do with the DEF dosing module (injector)? My AFE delete pipe came with a plate welded on it to secure the DEF module.

yes all harness plugs are very easily reached there are two module boxes that I took out not sure what they do , I removed and unplugged all my DEF tank stuff, lines, tank etc. and took the tank shroud out cuz I hated the way it looks. With the H&S tuner you can remove and unplug pretty much everything under the truck haha there was even a sensor on my CCV hose have no idea what it was ,unplugged it, deleted it and still no light haha
