No, the urea crap wasn't introduced until the 6.7 engine.

Yes, your truck will go into regen unless you tuned it and removed the DPF.

You will notice a slight change in engine sound, EGT's will be in the 1000+ range and a message will appear on your message center briefly saying "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" or something similar. Later dealer flashes or TSB's removed the constant display so it may only briefly flash when it goes into regen, so if you have this later flash, you could miss it.

Any pics of the new ride?

You will definitely hear a change in engine sound. Even if you have the newest flash when the message only lasts 2 seconds.

SYNC wasn't available until the '09 trucks came out however, so your only option without SYNC is a standard bluetooth pairing. What you can do with a bluetooth pairing depends on the headunit installed.

Have you verified that all the TSB's have been taken care of? Flashes, Venturi T for the radiator, etc..
