I know a cracked DPF will allow one to smoke during regen.

honestly, it is normal (to an extent). All that extra fuel and soot is being burned out, so some smoking should be expected. Esp. with winter blend fuel.

I think it also has something to do with the ambient temperatures at the time of the regen.

saw mine do it once when i had my DPF on, didn't think anything of it ... and i've seen 2 trucks in the last month smoking going down the road..... i just think to myself, "Glad i deleted that stupid thing" you should be fine tho, shouldn't cause any issues with your truck.. as dazdillenger said.. "Its normal (to an extent)" i think is the perfect way to put it
