Delete regrets or issues

I've got an 11 w 130K been a great truck. I'm on the fence about deleting. I really want to but wanted to see if anyone has had issues since deleteing or wishes they hadn't deleted due to problems. Thanks in advance.

Over 30k miles deleted and tuned.

Problems - my rear tires seem to bald a lot quicker and I cant figure out why
Also my girlfriend always wants me to race people

Regrets - not doing it sooner

I figured people would say regret not doing it sooner. I really want to do it just hate to ruin a good truck. Although it may be on the road to ruin now with all the egr crape

Are you out of warranty or did you buy an extended warranty? If you're out of warranty, the only reason I can think of for not deleting would be fear of legal repercussions. There is no real argument that your truck won't benefit from the removal of emissions systems. As long as you drive sensibly and refrain from "rolling coal" in front of law enforcement, deleting is the best thing you can do right now to ensure longevity of your engine. Also, the new capabilities and characteristics of your deleted truck just may bring a spark to an old flame and you will fall in love with your truck all over again. Haha. I'm actually surprised you were able to hold out after 130,000 miles. I was unaware of what "deleting" was until after purchasing this truck and I somehow ended up doing it before I reached 5,000 miles. I have no regrets as of yet! A catastrophic engine failure may have me singing a different tune though, especially with years of valid warranty leftover! Oh well, I say F*** THEM ALL!

Not even one letter. Lol. I've only had mine deleted for like 2k miles but I like it better. As long as I have not trouble.

No. My 6.0 was handed down to me from my Dad when he went back overseas to work. I drove a Tahoe at the time, so I was new to diesels. I know now that the DPF wasn't introduced until the 6.4's, but I had no idea at the time. It didn't take me long to get my hands on a HyperTech tuner though. This was the last time I saw that truck..
