What Should I Do?

Coming up on the end of the 3 year warranty with 31,000 miles. Truck hasn't had any major problems. I did have the check engine light once and had something replaced dealing with the EGR. Cannot remember exactly what it was.

I am almost afraid to have this truck without a warranty. Should I get the Ford extended warranty? If so which level?

Don't be afraid of ur truck bud, just do the normal 6.4 mods, take the egr off, i have a7.3 and havent studied the 6.4's much so i'm not the one to ask, but i would just start "improving" your truck.

It's none of my business but if you are afraid you won't be able to pay to get ur truck fixed, maybe you should extend the warranty, or get a different truck??? If it were me and I had it I would improve it

The 36,000 mile warranty is the everything warranty. You still have the 60,000 power train and the 100,000 engine warranty. So set back relax and enjoy your truck.

i had the same dilema- 35k miles and panic mode set in. never had a problem with the truck (job 1) short of a new radiator at 1k miles. got scared and was talked into the extended esp warrenty. 50k miles now and still 0 problems. would love to have that 2k back right now but i do feel slightly at ease that there is a "safety net" with the warrenty. f350 cc lb 4x stock minus leveled.
