I WANT HEAD STUDS!!

I live in Northern New Jersey. About twenty minutes from NYC. I can't find a dealership that is willing to install head studs. Not even if I pay them? Where do you guys around here go for this? I have even offered cash to several techs, but still nothing. Is there any speed shops that can do this in my area. I want to do this before I have a problem. Please help me. Thank You.

Don't do it until you have an issue.

No point in fixing something that isn't broke. I guess what I should have said is don't do studs untill the HG's go or you have the oppertunity. What if he gets the studs pay's $2500 for the job and he really didn't need them. Okay he's got the studs and 2 weeks later the truck gets rearended and totalled or catches on fire? He didn't need studs and now he would be out $2500. Probably won't happen but what if? Or you can have the situation I had. EGR cooler broke. Asked for about studs and they said that would be fine. Well I supplied the studs and now I have a studded motor. I thought I would never have studs but things happened and now I do.

Not necessarly. Headstuds are pricey if not warranty and are stuck in the motor if the truck is totalled. Now wheels, stereo's, programmers, gauges can simply be removed if the truck is totalled.

Ease Up Dad!! Don't worry!! Kids are kids and it's his hard earned money.
Haven't most of us done mods we really didn't need
I Like The added Insurance Also!! Think Dad....... It could cost ya more later! Warped or Cracked Heads Maybe
Not beating on ya pop ....... Be Cool ...... Be Happy ...... Life is Too Short

I'm close to crying after reading this. I love my truck and hope nothing you mentioned ever happens I want the studs as preventitive insurance. I tow VERY heavy loads up the thruway and dont want a problem. I am willing to pay out of pocket. Truck runs great, but as my warrenty runs to an end, there are things that need to be taken care of. After studs, EGR needs a one way ticket out of town.

Warranty would be great, but I'm willing to pay. I just need to find a place. I really wanted ford to do it as they are experienced with cab lifting and the engines them selves.
