Good Bay Area Dealership to get Warranty work done?

I took my truck into Frontier Ford in San Jose and told them to check out the leak I have had for a while now. Its the bed plate in between the motor and oil pain i guess. I dont trust no one with my truck and have always done my own work, but always on gas vehicles, never anything on diesels. Im scared of having the leak fixed, but then having nothing but problems happen after. My warranty is gonna expire in december of this years, its a 2006 F250 with 39k miles. What dealership do you guys recommend and is it worth getting repaired? They said it would take 2-3 days to do the work, and usually its a cab of job, but they do it without taking the cab off. Also am I entitled to a rental car while its in for repair's? I have owned the truck for just 2 years now, since 17k miles, and never taken it in for warranty work.

Basically what dealership in the Bay Area do you guys recommend with good diesel techs???

Unless it's real bad I'd leave it alone. I did anyway. The only dealer I've heard anything good about as far as service is in Brentwood.

I personally know someone that works at S and C ford up in the city. I got a few of my injectors replaced by them, and all under warranty. So far so good with the repairs. The diesel tech there seems to know what he is doing. He knew all the symptoms of what I was describing to him. Said the 6.0 is notorious for it.

I have a month left and about 7k miles left. So much for blowing my head gaskets under warrany! haha
