Ok there are a few questions that I would love some input on. And sorry for the length I tried to break it up to be easier to read.
I have 2005 6.0L Ford F250 FX4 Lariat 4x4 CC. The truck has 59,900 miles on it. I bought the truck in 07 1ith 19,600 miles on it. I am gonna go to the local ford dealership for an oasis report because I really don't know what was done to the truck before I got it. I just got a letter stating that my 100,000 mile warranty was up and do I want to purchase the Dealer Care extended plan for $2100. Now I am not sure I want to purchase, as in worth my wile, it but wanted to know what you guys think.
Now the facts for as far as I have owned it are:
The truck has never had a tune on it nor has it been raced. I have never done anything to the engine except for normal maintenance (oil change, fuel filter etc..). The motor is completely stock.
I have never had a problem with the truck whatsoever: no oil leaks, no turbo problems, no over heating, no transmission problems, not even any coolant overflow. the Truck has been flawless I am really happy with it. To my knowledge it has never been in the shop for a repair.
I tow quite a bit though at 24 foot enclosed trailer (in sig) & a boat ,that's pretty much the only stress put on the truck.
Reading over the policy it would only cover me for two more years because as I look at it I will not even come close to reaching 200,000 miles in two years when I put on maybe 10,000 miles a year.
Here is the catch though. I am in Colorado until May, when I graduate college, and then I am moving back to California for a job. Now personally I would like to just save my money and then do the bulletproofing of the 6.0L like ARP studs and EGR and what else I
then to waste on a warranty for just two years. Also in California I have access to a great shop with plenty of tools, lift, and people with knowledge.
Lastly with moving back to California I am not sure if I can even do an EGR delete due to the new smog rules on diesels heard that they might just fail you on sight of it being tampered with so would that mean that I would just have to have two and switch it back to stock for smog check? So in this case would the warranty be worth it? I just like to do things once the right way and be done with it.
Sorry for the novel, but this is what I am thinking about and I am not sure what would be the best route for me? I would be great to hear from people in California about this too.
