To Reflash Or Not?

My '08 F-350 was built in April. I understand form this forum that the dealer can reflash the computer to the latest changes. For instance my info center does not alert to a regen in progress. There probably are other updates as well. Should I take my F-350 back to the dealer for a reflash or not? Advantages or leave well enough alone?

A reflash that gave you a regen message would be great. But this is Canada. We won't get that for another year.

The dealer will not flash your computrer unless it is needed. If your truck has the latest and greatest flash they will not flash the computer unless your truck is showing signs of what the flash will fix.
