Hey Scotty, love your vids! I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie crew cab with about 99,000 miles on it. Love the truck and I have the lifetime Mopar warranty which I have taken full advantage of with engine, trans, and electrical repairs on their dime. The truck is obviously paid off and I want to keep driving it until the wheels fall off and they put new ones on, under warranty.
Here's the problem though; the body is starting to rust out under the doors and a little around the fenders. My body guy, who I trust completely, says he doesn't want to fix it because the rust will come back straight away. I live outside Chicago BTW. He says to do it right and to get more than a couple years out of it I should buy a used cab from down by you where there isn't such a prevalent rust problem. He estimates me looking at 5 grand after buying the cab, having it shipped up here, and him ripping out the interior to install it.
What do you think? I really want to keep it but I don't know A. if the repair is worth it and B. if Dodge will try to buy me out of the warranty because more problems will start happening.
