2012 unlimited- to mod or not to mod?

I love my jeep.

But I have a problem.

I really really want to put a 3-3.5 inch lift and 35's on it, but I don't want to lose my warranty. I don't know what to do. I could go with the dealer installed mopar lift, but they only come in 2 and 4 inch lifts. And they are like, 674 times more expensive then aftermarket.

What do I do?!

First off, you don't need that much lift to fit 35's.
And no mod will VOID a warranty.
If something breaks because of the lift, that part won't be covered.
This has been covered a lot on here, I know- cause I asked before.
I even confirmed it with the service manager where I bought
the jeep.

I'm not %100 sure if applies but you can bet your ass they won't be denying my warranty claims without a legal battle. That ruling places the burden of proof on the manufacturer or their representative. They need to prove the aftermarket item damaged the warranty covered item. And then still the voiding of coverage only extends to that one system/item.

Meh i got the lifetime warranty when i got my Jeep.Like you i wanted to put a lift but worried about the warranty then i started thinking i got the Jeep for one reason...To go wheeling.So i said f it and modded away.I did started out with a moderate lift but my type of wheeling requires bigger tires and taller lift so I ended up doing it twice.Decide what kind of wheeling you'll be doing to avoid the same mistake.

I like it. I already new it would only void that part, but the part it voids could potentially be extremely expensive, and it would be easy for them to blame anything/everything that might go wrong on the mod. If they try to pull some crap like that, who do I contact?
