I'd delete the DEF for those reasons.

Probably not an issue for me as I will eventually part with the Cummins and get an electric truck... once affordable used ones hit the market AND I can justify owning a truck. CyberTruck still tempts me. I really need 6+ seating.
A gallon of DEF last about 750 miles in my Duramax. It cost $7 a gallon (in a jug - less at a pump) so that is about $0.01 per mile for DEF. A delete is about $1500 for parts - double that to have the work done. That is a LONG payback to increase emissions with no benefit.
