DPF plugged???

I was wondering if anyone on here can give me any symptoms to look for if the DPF is plugged up? I was going to wait until the warranty is out but if these things are plugging inside of a 100000 miles I might go ahead and do it early.

your truck will be displaying " drive to clean exhaust filter " if it's getting to a point where it is very close to plugging up. I'm not sure what exactly it would say if it were plugged right up but I would imagine it would be giving you another type of warning. What is the truck doing that makes you think this?

It will throw your truck into "reduced power mode" and read the a P2463 Diesel Particulate Filter Accumulation. I know because it happened to me at 73xxx miles. I just deleted mine and couldn't be happier. Warranty or not, I'll deal with it!

I was going to wait until my warranty expired but I think I am probably going to go ahead and do the necessary deletes and program it.
