Got it working. It depends on year of truck. My problem was from 2018 and up, there is a security gateway that prevents non dealer code readers to make changes. I had to order a security gateway bypass. 50 bucks for a wiring harness that fits in the obd port with 2 jumpers that bypass the software.

Oh right on. Mine is a 2016 so it should be good then?

Yes, it should be good. It's pretty easy to use. Also I would recommend cleaning the map sensor if you haven't already.

At times you want to run the stationery desoot more than once,just drive it 2+miles and you can perform the service again, the more soot you burn off the less chance of ash build up,ash cannot be burned-out, if the DPF gets plugged with ash it must be removed and physically cleaned out.
