The dealership will be less likely to argue a claim but the third party warranty company is probably likely to argue if they can find one single element to argue about. The cash is now coming out of their pocket. I hope that you are doing business with one of the descent companies because they are few and far between.

I am going to post my experience and research findings on third party warranties in a new thread since it really doesn't apply to this one and maybe more people will see it. Feel free link over if you are interested.

This will be a long post but I urge anyone that has or might consider a third party warranty to read it. A third party warranty is one backed by a company that is independent of any auto manufacturer. Your dealer can still sell you these but that doesn't necessarily mean that they back it!

Just got my 2012 Limited last night, I think i got a good deal on the truck they were $2500 less then others i was working with and the truck i got has all the options i was looking for, Plus they gave me $2000 more for my trade in over others.

I plan on keeping this truck 10 to 15 years, so I got the life time warranty,
the only thing you have to watch is if you have 300k mile, and the engine gose, they will determen if the truck is at value of a new engine, If the cost of repair is higher then value of truck they will buy the truck at value

I have a 09 Ram 1500 laramie full loaded. Alot of power everything. I have 37,300 miles on my truck. Never had a singe issue in those 37,300 mies knock on wood. Do you think its wise to buy the extended warranty with Chrysler? I do have the lifetime limited powertrain as I am the original owner.

I think it is too late for you to purchase the extended warranty. I am pretty sure that has to be done before 36,000 miles.

When I bought my 09 last year I added an extended warranty to it. Haven't needed it but it was a good deal so I'm glad I have it. I believe I'm covered up to 80,000 miles.

Does anyone know if you can extend the extended warranty before it expires? And how long can you get the warranties for?

I called Chrysler and I can still get the warranty, I can get it even with 45,000 miles I think they told me. So I am still good in that aspect, I just didnt know if having 24 inch wheels hurt anything in regards to it.

That can't be a requirement of the warranty unless the maintenance is part of the warranty package. If you don't have your maintenance done at the dealer though make sure you keep good records.
