Another leak question

hey new to the forums here, i purchased a 2008 450 about a year ago from the dealer. Ive noticed that its leaving little leak marks in the street from what appears to be the radiator. i have done a dpf cat delete and cold air on the truck. i bought the extended warenty and am wondering if i should return it to stock. has anyone tried bringing there 6.4 in tuned under warranty/ should i be concerned about this small leak. any advice is greatly appreciated.

Depends on the dealer, really.

Yes, low radiator levels cause all sorts of other problems including melting egr coolers if they're still on the truck.

You should be OK just keep an eye on the level. Mine has been leaking for a week or so, haven't been driving it much though.
