Cost for DPF/Urea Injection Repair = $7k?

I was at the dealer last night looking at 2011 F-250's and we were talking about the DPF/DEF (urea) injection setup. He told me that a guy recently came in with the unit damaged (I guess the DPF and DEF injection is all one unit) and it cost him $7,000 to get it fixed?

According to the sales guy, he had lifted his 250 and was out 4-wheelin' and came down on a stump. He had the FX4 package, but I guess there is no skid plate there?

Just trying to get some info I guess. Can anyone corroborate the cost? Is it really that unprotected? These trucks are called Superduties...

If you're that dumb to wheel a $60,000 truck that hard then he may have deserved it. I don't believe the systems are combined. Even if he smashed the DPF and the Urea injection system I don't see how it could have cost that much.

These trucks should be built to take some abuse. They are supposed to be heavy duty trucks. That 60k isn't for a Cadillac-style ride.

I wheel my wife's H3 harder than most modified Jeeps and have yet to break anything. Most parts underneath (especially the expensive ones) are also well protected.

I can bet your exhaust system is not protected. Especially the muffler as it would trap heat. Heavy Duty doesn't mean bullet proof, it means it can tow the most crap and stand up better than the competition. The DPF on the 2011's is in the same spot as it is on your 08; between frame rails, but you can still get something in there to smash it if your stupid enough, or just unlucky.

Agreed. But fixing a bent exhaust, replacing the muffler or even the entire exhaust system isn't that bad of a repair. I'd think there should be a heavy duty skid plate protecting the DPF, especially if it's that expensive and the truck has the FX4 package (which includes skid plating).

If he hit that exhaust that hard there is probably more then just it damaged. It sits pretty close to the frame. They are all that expensive I think an 6.4's are around 4 grand.

No manufacturer can build for all episodes of STUPID! If you want to go 4 wheeling like that, build yourself one that is setup for what you are going to do. If he landed on a stump a skid plate would probably have just caved in and still damaged things. Key statement was "came DOWN on a stump".

I'm just saying, it sounds like a very expensive part is very exposed. This isn't just a $300 muffler.
