Help please, guys are being stranded out in -40 degree temps. HELP!

Hello everyone,

Thanks for taking time to check this out and to help me with this situation.
I am new to this site and I am working on filling out my profile so please dont spam me for not doing so yet. This issue takes priority over everything else.
Now to the point.

I can't tell anyone where i work or who I work for, but let me say its freaking cold here. We are having issues with our 6.7 powerstrokes shutting down in the middle of nowhere. From what I can figure out its probably an emissions related shut down from the DPF. The crews are telling me that a "pull over safely" light comes on and then their trucks just die and won't start again. Our trucks idle a lot and never get over about 45 mph and never tow a load. Is there a DPF delete kit that can be installed with a programmer that will solve this problem for us? I am in the process of looking but right now I wanted to ask everyone for their input in solving this problem ASAP.

Thanks again!

I didnt think the truck shut down when it goes into regen to clean the dpf.
this might be another issue and the Data/PIDS or freeze frame data should be checked to see just what is going on.
