Question

Just reached 100.00, and have been looking at extended coverage for this truck. Does anyone have any recommendations at which company to go with?, or ones to stay away from?.

Just be sure to get a full copy of the coverage BEFORE you buy it. It's the law that you are entitled to that document before the purchase.

Read it thoroughly be sure you understand what is and what is not covered, deductibles, customer's responsibilities, where/how repairs are handled and how claims are handled, etc.

They all sound really good until you start reading the fine print, so to speak.

Yes, read very well ALL the contact and have explained what it doesn't cover, you will be amazed of what will be excluded.

Example: LLYs were famous for overheating, will warranty cover it or will it be owners responsibility ? Transmission snaps shafts while towing a trailer even within max towing capacity, will it cover it ?

I am not a fan of extended warranties, not to bash but if it was a Cummins I would say don't do it, since I owned 4 of them with over 200,000 miles, I know how they can alst

Duramax are excellent motors, I just don't know many with high mileage yet, but usually a diesel engine will outlast a gasoline by a long shot.

Again be sure somebody explains VERY WELL any question you have with it.

If you would have bought it before your factory expired it would have saved you a ton of money. To get one now will cost alot. What I would do is talk to a gm diesel tech and ask him comon failures at your milage and above, then when you go into buy the ext war. you can compare what is covered. Some ext war companies get a list like this and not cover them items. Another thing is make sure you have all records of maint. if you havent done your scheduled maint. the ext war company may not cover the items they say they will. Ask about that ahead of time. Also some companies if you never use them, they will refund a portion of your money. Good luck!

I believe you will find, as has been discussed on this Forum in the past, that consumer protection advocates generally regard these "contract"s as being little short of a con game. Do not waste your money. If we had effective regulatory action going on from Washington a great many things like this would simply go away. Like the headache cure that you rub on your forehead......gimme a break. It has been PROVEN that this product simply does not work....but has it been banned? nope, not in todays world.

Stay away from X warranties....very very few people ever gain any satisfaction from them and even then it usually takes them a long, wearing battle of letters, emais and telephone calls to extract a dime or two. mad.gif

Don't waste the money. I have a 2002 D Max they are a LB7 Durmax and that is what you have in your 2001. The week point of this motor has been the injectors. GM has a special buelltin that covers the injectors to 200K. You will probably need this. I bought mine at 75K and the injectors had been replaced at 70K. Then at 155K 3 injectors went out again. Well my dealer had to take it to the regional service manager to get it approved to fix again since it had already been done once on my truck. Well thankfully GM covered all eight again so I have new injectors once again. I did tear a transfer case out but other than that I have had pretty good luck. But those were two pretty big things.

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.

      Fish cleaning shack has been pretty quiet at pike bay resort last 2 days. Been on several spots on big bay with little success.  Family wants to lose their $$ at casino today.  Hopefully get out later today. Good luck and keep posting.

      Any recent info out of vermilion? Coming up for next 4 days and will report back as well. Haven’t fished in the summer up there for a long time
    • Dash 1

      Blame you?  You needed it there and I knew you couldn’t change your, um, *stretch?* time.
    • smurfy
      🤣🤔 I can't believe you didn't try blaming me.   It's been a while since I stopped there... to check the landing  🤭
    • Wanderer
      I was wondering how long it would take you to notice - and blame me!  It wasn’t there the weekend before the 4th I know!  We took my buddies duck boat with a surface drive motor out for the grand tour.   I looked for it and thought DANG Smurf’s gonna be pizzed!   Then I found you something real nice on the interweb you might be interested in.
