DPF replacement

I keep reading about people having to drop $1,000's on replacing DPF's on other diesels. What would type of driving would kill the DPF? Doesn't the regen clean the DPF? Most of my driving will be towing an 18' enclosed trailer 15 miles each way a few times a week. I will also be taking it on 200-400 mile snowmobile trips in the winter.

Regen cleans the buildup out of them by heating them up and basically burning it out. They have a life span because its like a mesh with some rare elements in there, and over time they break up. Like a cat that gets all torn up and clogged in a gasser.

They are expensive because they have some crazy expensive metals inside it.

will short drives decrease the life span of the DPF? How many miles can I expect out of a DPF if I do a lot of 15 mile or less trips?

I think short trips are a little harder on them. Cold motors tend to have higher emmisions (more stuff going out the exhaust and filling up the DPF).

I think Ford said something like 100,000 mile life span with the 6.4's DPF but I dont know.

Havent heard of any of the DPF's going out on them yet.

Gotcha. That's what I wanted to know. I don't mind a couple grand every 7 years or so.
