I have heard trucks stops have DEF at the fuel tanks. However, I have yet to visit one... Sure would make it easy to fill. However, I watch a video on Youtube showing how easy it was to pour it in via a spout without spilling any.

Just filled up yesterday at the Pilot station by my house. $2.49/gal for DEF. The DEF nozzle is smaller than the diesel one.

PSA - bring a towel or equivalent with you, the pumps are pretty nasty.

DIesel exhaust fluid (DEF)and diesel particulate filter (DPF) are two separate things.

Sorry, haven't checked the forum in a few days. There have been a few threads bashing Jeep for perceived poor QA lately (i.e. a JGC DELIVERED with a fuel door that was a different color than the body). Again, not trying to take this thread off-topic or have it devolve into yet another flame war.

I have little doubt that the divots/dents in the factory exhaust (and consequently in the Magnaflow unit) are there for a reason - whether that's for clearance with regard to nearby parts or for ease of installation.
