Any experience with the dealerships???

I am straight piped and chipped and my radiator just blew a leak. I'm hoping the dealership will still warranty the repair. Just sent it off with the tow truck...... Any experiences would be appreciated!!

My dealer doesn't care and I'm Spartan tuned, they are changing out rad's like crazy so they can't blame that on a programmer.

Mine had a radiator crack, the dealers know the problem and it is a factory defect.

My truck is stock, but it is on it's third radiator, they know it is a problem and they are replacing them like crazy!!! I know there is a TSB on them, and like someone else said earlier that has nothing to do with programming or exhaust. Good luck and let us know what they say.

I have been adding water to my radiator for last 10,000 miles. Going to have to shut it off and get it in the shop soon. Dealer better have my back on the pipe and tune.

Dealership Results

Just got my truck back with new radiator and all and they didn't even mention my straight pipe etc. WHen I got into my truck my A/C unit had no power but they then reset that for me and ordered a new unit just in case! So I am very pleased with my dealership and had no issues whatsoever. I could tell that they checked my milage because the dash display was reset and my chip level had been changed!

I'm running the black box with the edge with juice chip currently. I have been debating on upgrading to the SCT or Spartan but have not liked the comments on the shifting problems. I don't know if the reflashed my computer but I don't think so... don't think it would matter with my current set up. They just unplugged and plugged back in the air conditioning controls.
