If it wasn't for my warranty, I woulda paid at least 2K the first year of owning my truck. It spent more time in the dealership garage than it was on the road. Hence the reason I haven't done any major mods. Another 12K miles and the whole warranty will be gone, then the fun can really begin.

My truck went in a lot for warranty stuff... BL last weekend and I'm gonna take her back next week probably to see if I can squeeze some warranty out of them... Technically a BL shouldn't void a warranty but you change ANYTHING on a vehicle and most dealerships will claim voided warranty so they don't have to deal... I had my truck for a year before BL... warranty is half up now so I figure, screw it.... I'll let you know how it goes... haha

first off they had to replace 1 front shock and the one they ordered wasn't the same that I had so they ordered another one to replace the old one. Next time they had to re-seat my back window b/c it wasn't in all the way. I could stick my finger in the corner. Then I had a seal in the tranny leaking and had them replace the clutch at the same time. Then there was another leak but can't remember what it was. Few other small things I had to take it in for. Will be buying a new starter soon too.

good luck with that lol.

thats how i look at it also, the warranty will be up in a year or so if i keep putting as many miles on it as i am now.

got it with 7k in the beginning of june, as of now it has almost 17k miles.

lol ive been back and forth from vegas to reno a few times

and back home, when i work for my dads company, i was usually pulling a trailer from the very north end of vegas, where i literally live right by the mountains, to the very south end, by the mountains down there. if you know vegas, its a valley, thats quite a drive.

probably about 50-60 miles a day. i was doing that 4-5 days a week.

yikes.
