What harm will not letting regen complete do?

I am wondering if shutting the truck off when it's still in regen is bad for the truck? Or if its bad for the DPF DOC emissions stuff? I am going to get rid of all the dpf doc stuff later this year, I just don;t want to run my truck into the ground.

not sure about our pickups but my mack truck (semi) if you dont regin the dang thing eventually it will shut down and has to be sent to mack for a new $ 4000 mufler. if you just shut it down in regin cycle it doesnt do anything. but it will need to regin after you start back up. the manual says dont shut down while it regins but i have.. it will run for a while the the regin light will come back on. hope this helps and is correct for your situation

After hearing about people who shut their trucks down a lot during regen, compared to those that don't, it seems as if the ones who do, typically have a higher % of fuel dilution in their oil. Not to mention, it is increasing your exhaust gas temperatures to the extreme, and you are immediately shutting it off...can't be good for turbos, or anything else for that matter.

I don't always shut it off as soon as it starts but I never get a regen when i have to drive 30 miles only when im driving like 5 miles, usually let the truck cool the turbos down before i shut off
