    Have any of you purchased an extended warranty on your trucks? Where?

    Far as I know you have to buy it through the dealer. The aftermarket companies wont cover a commerically used truck.
    I bought my right through GM, its a continuation of the original 3 yr36K warranty. With GM as long as you are still with in the original warranty, they will sell you the extended. I assume ford is the same.

    I would strongly recommend if you decide to go the "insurance" route to get the policy through the respective manufacturer and not through third-party warranty companies (Global, Western, etc) regardless of what they tell you not every shop will honor the third-party extended warranty, in more cases than you would like to know you will have to pay the repair and be reimbursed at a later date. A manufacturers extended warranty, however, will be honored with no out of pocket expense except for deductible at any dealer, and in some cases at private repair facilities with authorization.

    Just bought a new Super-Duty and picked up an ESP extended warranty with it.
    4 yrs 100.000 miles.
    Covers virtually everything except normal wear items. ie brakes, belts, hoses, filters, bulbs, glass, and interior cloth and carpet.
    There is a signifacant jump in price from 4 yrs to 5 though.
    Make sure you "haggle" the price with the selling dealer.
    I was able to get mine down $500.00 from the advertised price.
    Good luck.
