Ash problems?

Has anyone run into this?

Over time a slight amount of ash will build up in the DPF which is not removed during the regeneration process. The DPF may need to be removed for ash cleaning at approximately 120,000 miles (193,000 km) or greater (actual mileage can vary greatly depending upon engine/vehicle operating conditions) and replaced with a new or remanufactured (ash cleaned) part. The filter may need to be replaced at approximately 250,000 miles (400,000 km) depending upon engine/vehicle operating conditions. In both cases the engine control system will set a service light to inform you to bring the vehicle to the dealer for service.

I'm about half way there at 50,000 miles. The few post that I have read of owners over 150,000 have complained about some other part, But nobody has mentioned their service required the above ash removal.

But finding trucks with over 120,000 is pretty rare so far. And maybe that type of high mileage use doesn't create ash like soccer dad driving does. I have no idea what type of driving creates the most residual ash.

There's a reason why DPF systems have been coined the term of "the ticking time bomb under your truck." This is definitely an issue. There was a rather lengthy write up about this last year about this exact issue and the need to replace DPF components in due time because of soot and ash buildup as a result of these filters.

Why bother cleaning when you can probably delete it for much cheaper and never worry about it again.

This is actually one of the biggest reasons how I convinced my wife to let me buy all my mods and do the dpf delete. I might have exaggerated a little bit and said the dpf filter would need to be replaced at 100,000 miles instead of 250,000 and it would cost a boat load of money to replace, so why not delete now and get better milage.. Ha, it worked flawlessly .... and now
