Drive hard and make it work, the 6.7 and the dpf don't like easy driving, another words have a heavy foot on the go pedal. Must keep the exhaust hot to keep the dpf clean. That doesn't mean you can't do city driving, stop-n-go, but don't do it all the time. I am at 85,000 miles on my 07 and no problems except a water pump leak.

Oh yea, most people will recomend to leave the EB on even when not towing. Good Luck

... Now that is truly the best advice.. I agree on running the EB all the time.. Now if you don't want to stay stock I can offer other advice but, the 6.7 in stock form needs to be worked. Let us know how you plan to use your truck, are you wanting to keep it stock, do you want to mod it? There is a wide list of things you can do with these trucks, but that will depend on what you want to get from it and how you plan to use it.

I will also add when I was stock, My problems slowed down when I switched from Rotella T 15 W 40 to Valvoline Premium Blue 15 W 40, and stopped using fuel additive. (just my experience)

The Preform Service message is for the DPF... Does the truck have a CEL on? I am not aware of a way to reset it other than with a dealer starscan tool.

Just a note but, programmer or chip on a DPF equipped truck can cause a very least more regens and could cause damage to the DPF.

They can do what is called a forced regen and burn it off.l you have several options. You can take to it the dealer and have it fixed.. which I would do first. then you could delete it like most do.. Get rid of the DPF and the EGR. The EGR is what really does the harm. It just depends on what you want to do. My mileage was horrible until I tuned it and got rid of stuff, not I pull about 18MPG city

My milage is very poor, I have not figured it out exactly but 11.5-12 empty. What would I need to get rid of all that junk? Does someone sell a kit? Ive got a 1500 mod budget.

You would need a tuner from either smarty or h&s a tbe is the best but a simple delete pipe will work. Then a egr blocker plate and your good to go. A set of gauges is also a good idea.

This worked for me as far as message reset....

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not start engine).
2. Press and release the brake pedal two times.
3. Fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly two times within 10 seconds.
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
