Who has a new engine?

I'm getting a replacement engine and I'm wondering about it. I know a number of people on this forum have put a second engine in so I'd really like to hear from them.

What kind of warranty did they give on the new engine?
Did you consider an additional full coverage MoPar warranty extension for 5/100K miles? If so, why or why not?
Did you keep the truck or decide to trade it?

What things surprised you about the new engine, good or bad?

Thanks for any feedback you may provide.

So far, the DS body can only take the most recent iteration of the Gen 2 engine. I'm sure there have been many little changes along the way. GDE says they are developing a kit to install the Gen 3 engine, which would be a great improvement. Stellantis would probably save money if they could adapt to use Gen 3s when they have to replace Gen 2s.
We could all have the peice of mind then too since the gen 3 engine doesnt have the clear design flaw that causes so many failures on the gen 2.
