My cab is coming off tomorrow.

Just got a call from the dealer... they have to take the cab off my 08 450 to figure out why there isn't any compression in the 2 and 4 cylinders. Thank God for the 5yr/100k warranty.

Has anyone had problems the their cab after it was removed and put back on? Is there anything I should check out before I leave the dealership?

Thanks

im sure if there taking the cab off they have done it before should be routine, and in all reality its the only way to fix one of these trucks IMO and its not nearly as bad as i originally thought.

he is driving a 6.4 not a 6.0 , heck doesnt even look like he is tuned, no need for studs on a stock truck.
