Modifications and warranty

I ordered new front and rear bumpers, betting I'm going to get some sag and will have to add spacers and get an alignment done. Any general rules for modifying a jeep and its warranty?

With the mods you listed you will probably loose your warranty on the bumpers.

And as for the alignment, all you will need is the drag link adjuster moved slightly to re centre the steering wheel. Nothing else required

Oh and agreed, your new bumpers wont be covered by the Jeep warranty of course, but everything else will be fine.

The bumper should not void the warranty, however if in the future they need to remove it to fix another part (like the radiator) then they can charge you labour to remove the non genuine part.....

Why would they remove the bumper to change the radiator ?
