It comes with a 2 year warranty and the new thermostat. Why should I replace the other hose? They are doing it tomorrow so I can have them add it if you think I should. I'm swapping out the SOHC V6 with a 5.0L V8 next August.
You dont have to replace it. It's just the best time to replace it since you have to remove the thermostat housing to change the hose. Why pay the same labor bill twice? That's the only reason I recommended changing the bypass hose. It's like $10 for a new one
