Should I extend the warranty?

How many miles did your rig have when the injectors started to fail? The reason I ask is because my truck has about 88k and the warranty is about to expire. I've been told by others that the 6.0 injectors go out about 90k-100k miles. If I'm gonna have to replace the injectors eventually, it seems cost effective to just get the warranty. What do you guys/gals think?

Yes, being it's the Ford Extended. Unless you are wanting to do a bunch of mods to your truck. I see you haven't done any yet. Suggests to me you are not. Extend it.

Plus it is pretty cheap compared to other trucks. I have seen the Ford ESP anywhere from $1400-$2K. If you are buying the Ford ESP shop around, each dealer will give you a different price for the exact same product.

Get the full ESP package which is like $2400. I only got the base package and I am regretting it now.

At that mileage he will only be able to get the 13 point ESP and not the 21 point.

If you maintain your vehicle right and use a good synthetic oil there is no reason for your injectors to all of the sudden go out. Personally I'd buy a egr delete or a bulletproof egr cooler, flush the cooling system good and switch to an ELC coolant, maybe rebuild the oil cooler and update the STC fitting and dummy plugs, update the fuel pressure regulator, and your truck should be pretty darn reliable.

My aftermarket warranty saved me $4,000 for a failed EGR valve, EGR cooler and Oil Cooler. It has more than paid for itself.

Same here. I normally dont buy extended warranties. But the 6.0 is an exception.
