dodged a bullet with my radiator leak...

Noticed it was leaking today. Called the dealer to see what my options were as far as warranty(truck has 37400 miles).

Dealer said that since i had one replaced already the radiator has a 12 month/12000 mile warrant. When was my last one done? 12/29/2008 with 25,598 miles...
Whew... just inside the warranty. New radiator is on order under warranty.

Why does your truck eat so many radiators?

Some of the Job 1 trucks are like that. Then again i heard of one that went through 3 radiators before they found that one of the coolers was causing them to leak.

Hey Dusten, you ever thought about going with an aftermarket "performance" radiator...? I think Banks has one.......
