I know how you feel. My mustang came stock with 3.27s . If it wasn't for the V8, it wouldn't have been able to get out of its own way.

I hate the cab mount bushings. This has to be the worst design ever in the history of trucks.
The bottom part of the bushing spins when you try to tighten up the 18 mm bolt and there's no way to hold the bottom part from spinning ... not even a big pair of channel locks will hold them.

I told the dealership my transfer case was leaking, they told me to bring it in as it is still under warranty, they call me back to let me know the seal aint cover by warranty and now have to pay $80 to tell me it was the seal.... I have a feeling im gonna have to be escorted out when I pick up the truck.

Make them show you in writing....because like you, if it's the official Ford new vehicle warranty - I believe it should be covered.

Not sure about Canada, but this document should apply down here for 2010 model year vehicles: http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Fo.../10frdwa4e.pdf

Page #15-16 of the electronic document (Page #10-11 of the booklet) addresses the five years or 60,000 miles powertrain warranty.

In part, it says this extended coverage applies to the following:

Transmission: all internal parts, clutch cover, seals and gaskets, torque converter, transfer case (including all internal parts), transmission case, transmission mounts.....blah blah blah.
