Installed Mopar Rubicon suspension on my 2013 Sport

Installation was relatively easy. Didn't need to align because I didn't remove any unnecessary bolts. Added a .75 leveling kit I bought on amazon for 36$ to the front in. So in total I gained 2.5 in the rear and 3 in the front. Sits even with 6 inches from top of tire to edge of fender flare. Rides much nicer and I've got the height that I wanted. Key factor.... Mopar parts. Mopar warranty still in tact.

Is this the Mopar lift with the Fox shocks? The one that costs $4,000 or more?

I think he is talking about stock parts. A lot of people use stock JKU or JKUR suspension to gain a bit of lift for 2dr Jeeps.

The only thing that keeps your mopar factory warranty irrefutably intact is a bone stock vehicle. No mopar lift negates the fact that if they determine the reason for failure of your front driveshaft was a lift they will not cover it. Read up on Magnusson-moss act to get all the clarification necessary. Mopar add on parts have a warranty of their own but it's separate from your factory warranty and only covers the part itself, not damage it could cause. You pay to play and there is no other way around it.

Happy you love the lift and post some pics so we can all see.

according to my dealer as long as their mopar parts installed by mopar certified techs the warranty remains 100% intact. but if their aftermarket, installed by somebody else or used then the parts and whatever damage the parts cause is void of warranty. and i'm sure they keep records so they'll know with a few simple key strokes.

edit: granted they are trying to make a sale so i coulda gotten a line of bs but thats how my paperwork reads too.

There may be carve outs where the Dealer itself will stand responsible but Chrysler mother ship would politely let you know you modified the vehicle from it's factory configuration. If you can get it in writing (without fine print) that it's covered great but that is that dealer covering your not Chrysler. A factory warranty claim can be taken to any dealer not just the one that did the install. If you do your own install of Mopar parts no one is going to cover damage that is a direct result of your modification no matter what part it is.
