I bought the vehicle in sept. 2021, so that 90day/6,000mile warranty is void. My truck had to be towed to the dealer for issues and they said it’s the rear main seal ($2,500) and possibly timing chain ($2,200). Is there any place in MN I can take it to that would be cheaper or what are my options?

Your options are to take it to an Independent Mechanic, which should charge significantly less than the Dealer, or check with your local Vocational High School's Automotive Department ... they may be willing to take on the job as a learning exercise with their students ... or repair it yourself.

What's the Build Date (on the Driver's Side Door Pillar)?

Mine was about $1500 at Fred’s Jr’s in Forest Lake. I’d also suggest getting the GM vented oil cap to prevent crankcase pressure issues in the future.
