    I had to do this once. It was super easy.

    As did I. Well, I purchased the truck used but wanted to make sure that when I did buy a Raptor, that it would come with the ESP PremiumCare 100K Warranty. Met the seller at a local dealership and had them transfer it within a matter of minutes. My truck is actually having warranty work performed right now. 3 small leaks and the driver's seat doesn't seem to be heating at 100%. Hopefully they will be replacing all the heating elements.

    My Gen 2 has just recently exceeded 36k miles, but even before then I took advantage of the ESP anytime it went in by getting a free rental which the ESP entitles you to. Some dealers are better than others and will supply loaners on their dime even without an ESP, mine is not one of them.

    Getting near 3 yrs myself next month (2017 model, purchased 2/18), and also considering purchasing an ESP, so appreciate you opening the discussion, and all the replies. Seems 1 or 2 repairs to any of the electronic doodads and gizmos and you'll come out ahead. Going to print out the quote from Flood Ford and see if my dealer can meet/beat it.

    And by all means, buy from Flood and not your local dealer. Big savings!

    Had to replace heat in both seats last month on a 2018. ESP was worth it.

    The Raptor ESP is I believe the same price as a regular F150 work truck ESP, despite having all of the expensive offroad goodies. So it could potentially be underpriced by Ford? Most people are also buying the massively discounted plans from Flood/Ziegler.

    Given what I have seen with cam phasers, seat heating, and sunroofs...$1600 for my 8/100K coverage isn't crazy and you only come out ahead if nothing goes wrong in next five years.

    I did have a front upper shock mount break and that was not covered by warranty, so I wouldn't put much faith into "wear" parts like tie rods and stuff being covered if you are offroading.

    That seems like a really good price and worth the gamble.

    Question- is it transferable? Or partially refundable If you trade it in or the truck is totaled?
