    Maybe lease a truck from Enterprise? They make you return it after 50-60k anyway.

    I did the math, not worth it and they don't have chassis cab trucks. My trailer only works with a chassis.

    Well... 3.5 months later I finally got the part. Let's hope this fixes the issue.
    This sensor tells the truck what the dpf filter status is. Only side effect I've seen is the truck going into auto regen a little more often.

    Final update (hopefully :D)

    Part didn't solve the check engine light. Found a shop that does diagnostic and can work on my truck. Within an hour found a corroded power line going to the dpf sensor. Replaced it and check engine is gone. $400 repair. A bit steep but this problem stumped the dealer and multiple shops. Just happy to have it fixed and now can sell the truck finally.
