The message is for the egr cleaning not a dpf message. I don't have a 4th gen but for the 3rd gens the message is for the scheduled 67,500 mile egr system cleaning which is the cooler and egr valve.

To have a dealer do it will run between $700-1200 big ones.
To do it yourself will cost you 5 hours and about $120 for everything including gaskets and a crow foot wrench set.

If you're interested in keeping it stock then I would definitely clean the egr valve and possibly wait for the cooler until later. The coolers don't foul as badly as the valves and if fouled and sticking the valve can cause thousands in repairs.

if you're in an area that doesn't smog check the deleting is a good but expensive option.
And yes you can leave the egr system in place if you want.

Im planning on purchasing the AFE Bladerunner intake manifold, the delete pipe, and the h&s minimaxx tuner, but if I read correctly, I donít need to purchase the egr/ egr cooler delete kit. Is that correct? If you have any advice or suggestions on my choices, Iíd love to hear them.

thanks in advance
You don't need to change the intake, and H&S tuner is no longer supported so be aware of that. There are other tuners and EFI Live is currently a main choice and supported. All you need is the delete pipe and tuner for the basics. You don't need to delete the EGR or EGR cooler.

The extent of the deletes depends on where you live and the rules for smog.
