According to the techs at my local ford store, you shouldn't own a 6.4 with out a warranty. From what I can tell the repairs are costly and it seems that They are replacing alot of motors on them (short block/ long blocks)

IMO, it doesn't take a lot of repair now days to hit $2000 in repairs. I look at it as murphys law, if it doesn't need the repair I just bought my way out of a trip to the shop.

For what it's worth, I also bought the bumper to bumper 5/100000 on my 2011....

I Agree ,I also Like GeorgeC, He's a 6.4 man Until The 6.7 shows him it's got what it takes to make him make the Switch
And i mean That it's got what it takes Tuned,Not stock, as he buys His truck like i do,For what it can be Built,not what it is when we drive them off the lot.....

This is a Good Read

Yes even better! Or you could take the money and use it for a delete/tune then you would't really need the warranty.

First off, i moved your thread into the 6.4 section for ya bro

i bought my truck with 60k miles on it, i spent the 1800 or 2200 or something for an extended warranty and i was thinking to myself last week what a waste, i just hit 102k miles on my truck the warranty goes until 125k, then bam 2 weeks later radiator got a hole in it, so the warranty has damn near paid for itself already because the radiator on these things is expensive.
