Dreaded radiator leak

Well, after having my '08 6.4L for just over a month, it has developed the dreaded radiator leak. Thankfully I bought the Ford extended warranty as I'm out of warranty by 33 days...

I had my second radiator hose leak in as many years....I guess Ford wants to make sure I get that radiator fluid replaced annually.

Got it fixed yesterday. Dealership also replaced the oil drain plug since it was leaking (they changed the oil before I took delivery) and fixed a leak in the AC. Hopefully the thing is done bleeding and sweating now, and ready to tow our fiver...if it ever comes in!
