First diesel truck..

Hello, I just traded in my 2010 Silverado for an 06 King Ranch FX4 with only 50k miles on it. It was a local trade in and I got an awesome deal on it plus the dealership really wanted my Z71 since it was real clean and lifted. I was just tired of dreading pulling any type of trailer with any type of load. Heck, it struggled pulling 2 4 wheelers on an open trailer.

Its never had any problems except for a dead battery but I know you need extra care for these truck to avoid issues. I'm looking to buy an extended warranty just because I'm new to the diesel thing and I really dont know what I'm looking at under the hood. Can anyone recomend a warranty that will cover blown head gaskets, egt, injector issues etc.? I need one just long enough to figure out how this thing works.

But anyway, I really love the truck! The inside is amazing, power is awesome and it rides much better than expected for such a big heavy truck.

Look forward to enjoying the truck and the forum for may years to come!!
