Hey guys! I'm wanting to get head studs put in my truck, but I can't afford the $2000+ installation. I have an extended warranty until 200,000 miles. You guys have any tricks on how i can get some ARP head studs put in under warranty?

Well depending on your dealership around you if they went I would talk to the tech in the back and ask him to install the parts you want you'd just slide them in the cab somewhere. You aint gonna find anyone to do it under 2k though.

I am located in Prattville, AL. It's about twenty minutes from Montgomery. And honestly, if you can find somewhere I can do this, I wouldn't mind traveling a few hours.

You could just try calling local dealerships and talking to the service managers, some of them are pretty cool. Mine had no issues with it when I got mine done. Just be up front and honest with them and tell them that you'd bring it to them when ever possible. I told my dealer I'd exclusively bring my truck to them for work from now on, so they know there is no chance of them getting caught at another dealer with it. Some dealerships are pretty open about it and dont care, and they will do it no questions asked. I know of one dealer here in the NE that will do it with your truck not even puking, all they ask is you buy the studs from them for $500.

I would just call around to different dealers. There are more than a few dealers around you so its worth a try.

Basically, they way we have seen it go out here is if the head gaskets let go, and you don't get into trouble with aftermarket parts, then most of the dealers will install them while doing the work. If they won't, then find another dealer. You will have to do some legwork on this one to find out what dealers are willing to work with their customers.

I don't know how it is everywhere but with the extended warranty and i'm assuming its fords dieselcare warranty, when i've done repairs under that warranty ford almost always sends an inspector out before they will ok the repair. So you could still put them in but if anything ever happened again you'd be sol. The last inspector i had come out was all over the truck taking pictures of everything. Just what i've seen.

Tried to get mine done , gave them the whole song and dance. They replaced the EGR cooler and OIL cooler and said it was ok. (truck never lost 1 oz of coolant) , must just be a repair they do right off the bat to get you to go away. I mentioned to them about having to do studs on my 05 and they said oooh well ,your 06 is ok bring it back if you can prove its the gaskets or studs. ( they did studs , gaskets , and oil /egr cooler on 05 250 $5700.00 out of warranty!!)
