Nice purchase. Truck looks good. You made a good purchase. These newer diesel trucks all suffer from the same disease... Emissions crap. They are not good for the longevity of a motor because of the regen process/EGR. Basically the regen process can cause fuel dilution in your oil causing issues later down the road. Also with the short trips to work, you will probably clog your dpf in time. Best advise is to tune the truck and dump the DPF. This will give you better mileage and prevent dilution. EGR delete is another good mod, but isnt 100% necessary because the tuner will disable the EGR. You can still experience cooler failure over time if you dont delete the egr/coolers though. Tuning has the ability to increase your HP, but if you dont want big HP, you just run the truck on the low power tunes and you will be fine.
Make sure you keep up with your maintenance including draining the water sep. every month.
You bought a good truck, that will last you a long time if you take care of it.
