Safely pull over and shut down

Well, I had an apointment to have the reflash done in my truck for Friday this week. My truck has been all stock except for the MBRP Coool Duals for around two weeks. I have been waiting to see a regen message and it finally appeared yesterday. As it was cleaning the exhaust filter it decided to shut down on me like it has done 3 other times. So I drifted into a school parking lot and relaxed for an hour till it would start up again. Then the check engine light came on. So I called the Ford man and told him I was bringing it in tonight. I drove home and left an hour later to take it in and when I backed out of the driveway the check engine light went off. So it is at the dealer today for all the recalls, including the cruise control not always working. 5,000 miles on it and everytime it goes into a regen it shuts down on me. GEE I wonder why everyone does the DPF delete.:

the cruise control was not working due to a bad master silinoid that caused the computer to think the brake was on. I got the reflash done that is suppose to takecare of the problems with the regens. I haven't seen a regen yet to know if it works. I do have a tuner for my truck but I want to keep it stock for a little while to makesure the bugs are out. Oh by the way they could not tell the truck was SPARTANIZED!!!!!!!!!!! They said nothing about the MBRP cool duals on it either.
