My Volvo literature says 50hrs or 180 days, whichever is the sooner. The first service is to be done by a Volvo agent for the purpose of warranty.

Only believe a delivery date from Ribcraft when you get the keys in your hand!!!!!!!!!! and you tow it away of they deliver it to you.
Not that I am talking from experience or anything. But you will be pleased with the finished product. It is worth the wait.
