Any concerns about egr/dpf issues like other manufacturers ? ....

I'm still researching new diesels and notice with all the new emission stuff, egr/dpf plugging seems to be an issue on other diesels. I don't seem to see anyone really complaining about that with the new 6.7 Fords. Is it less of an issue with these new engines? 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.

The DEF cuts back on particulates that could plug the DPF, which I heard is about a $5,000 replacement. So I believe the 2011's should be of less concern than the 08-9's regarding dpf clogging.
