Partially blocked and caking up then parts of that caking which can get quite hard vibrating off and rating in your exhaust but a good amount remaining in the dpf and preventing the catalyst from working.

Your car is not as smart as your giving it credit for. Just because it's telling you regens are happening it does not mean they are happening the way they are supposed to, in fact your car will only go into active regeneration when it senses the dpf is not able to cope. How often is your vehicle trying to actively regen? and how much short distance driving do you do?

I do some short distance driving around town a few days each week but it generally gets a good run on the weekends at highway speed for anything for 30mins to 3 hours. Regens have been occurring roughly once a tank from what i've seen, prob 750-800kms between regens.
I might get my local exhaust mob to have a good look for me and go from there. If it is a failed DPF, I don't know what my chances would be at getting it replaced by Jeep as my warranty ran out in Sept '17.

Yep get them too look into it.

If you have had it dealer serviced it might be worth getting an independent oil analysis conducted to give you an idea of what oil is in it. That may give you some negotiation room when your try and get Jeep to pony up.

Just remember that no matter what jeep of the muffler shop say a "failed dpf" really is very rare actually a failed dpf. It's either another engine fault causing over fuel, incorrect oil, or your vehicle just isn't fit for purpose in that your not driving it hard enough, long enough and regularly enough and all replacing or cleaning the dpf will do is block up again (in which case you would be better off with a petrol).

Best of luck
