Don't drive the truck. Get it towed to Ford on your warranty. If you keep driving it with the issue, you will void the warranty and be buying a new exhaust system.

Sounds like the dosing valve for the filter blew the tip off and you are over fueling it. That exhaust system can flame the same way back to the engine and cost you a $30k engine. I highly suggest you tow it to Ford and let them handle it under warranty. It is covered on this new of a year.
