After all the problems discussed I am not sure if I should make the move. Presently my truck is stock and I get 19 mpg at 70 mph empty.
IMHO it sounds like you've got a good running '06 with good MPG's. I think I'd keep it a while longer and give the DPF issues another year or two to shake out.
From the people I've talked to and from what I've read the 6.4 looks like its going to be a pretty decent motor but the EPA stuff is whats causing many people grief.
