Will a gear swap void my warranty if install myself

If i do a gear swap myself, let say yank the 4.11's out and slap 4.88's back in. Will this void any of the 4yrs i have left on the 8yr 80,000 mi warranty i got on my jeep when i purchased it. So far i have yet to use the $1,800 8yr 80,000 mi drivetrain package they talked me into when i put my name on the dotted line. Up to this point i've been pretty much affraid to touch the jeep for fear that the warranty GOD's would hunt me down and tar and feather me LOL. All i want to do to my jeep is, slap some 32's on, a BB, and some 4.88's which should make the jeep run as good as stock. I was gonna drop the warranty package just because of never useing it, but it would be my luck that something would fly apart. (Oppinions please)

I'm sure when you got your warranty they gave you a specific warranty agreement terms and conditions lah lah lah page. You should read it first then make up your own mind. If you are dropping the warranty anyways then what's the problem.


That being said... it has been my experience that insurance companies will do whatever it takes to get out of paying a claim. :hi:

If you are capable of doing a gear swap yourself then you should have zero issues with a warranty claim. They aren't going to turn your ring and pinion to figure out what gear set you have. Unless you run them out and try to warranty your install.

you get 8 year warranty on your jeeps?

we only have 2 years (25,000 mls) warranty here in germany. we can extend the warranty up to 2 years but that costs 750$ for each year.
and every little change on the jeep means that we loose the whole warranty.

It's actually a service contract Nic, not something from the manufacturer. Not sure if that was clear..
