Don't delete until there is an issue with the emissions, or out of warranty in my opinion. I know a few guys with 400k plus and no emissions problems, they tow constantly and that really helps to keep the dpf clean. A tank of def usually lasts an oil change interval.
Will deleting make it more reliable? Sure, but it's not that its unreliable stock.
On the other hand all the emissions equipment is only on the truck because of federal government mandates. Powerstrokes in non emissions compliant countries don't have dpfs, egrs, or def tanks. They also still have ashtrays and cigarette lighters...
The Achilles heel is water in fuel not too many dpf, egr, or def troubles.
Get a long bed, shot beds have a baby fuel tank. Better yet get a titian tank, or an auxiliary tank.
Use only motorcraft filters: oil, fuel, air. I found the best price on Amazon.
Get airbags for towing, I have airlift they work well.
Change out the plastic CAC pipe for a metal one.
