I do like the new 250/350 SD trucks and am trying to make an informed decision.
So far, it seems to be less of an issue than with the first generation dpf's. The new SCR system that is on the Ford, really reduces the duty cycle of the EGR so those issues should also be less of a worry. (and hopefully a thing of the past)
The new motors have been out in the public for 5-6 months now and I haven't heard too many stories of plugged DPF's or malfunctions.
