That sounds right. I had to use it a few times on an 09 Patriot. Price does sound a little inflated, though. Most are paying around $1800.

I bought the Lifetime Maxcare on my 2013 RUbi for $2100ish. Depends a little on which deductible you choose.

Only drawback now is I'm leery about buying all my mods and effectively nullifying parts of my warranty.

i.e.-I really want an Spod to do a nice dedicated clean install of lights and stuff, but I'm afraid Chrysler will void out anything electrical once I install it. That would suck alot since the main reason I got the warranty was for the electronics that I cant fix.

That is the main reason why I didn't buy the extra warranty coverage. I've read many posts of people that had to jump through hoops every 5 years getting things checked. If you couldn't prove that you had all of the proper maintenance performed at the proper intervals, Chrysler would figure out a way to blacklist you and not honor the warranty.

I didn't want to be tied to the dealership for life. I also wanted to do what I wanted with my Jeep without asking Chrysler's permission first and hope that they would still honor the warranty later. It would be too much of a hassle for me. I'd rather use my local mechanic that does a better job at a reasonable cost and still have the freedom to do what I want with mods. If it costs me more because something major breaks outside of the standard warranty, I guess that is the cost of freedom.

Yup. It was a toss up for me. I deploy a lot and wanted the wife stress free.

Also, my new Rubi couldn't be more different than my first CJ5. Fack, it's 2013. EVERYTHING is computer controlled. I'm aware that Chrysler will try to get out of it at some point. I will never have a dealer change my oil and it will not go unmolested for 20 years.

Just peace of mind I guess.

OP-pick your path, hope for the best and have fun.
