Smittybilt Bumper + Winch. warranty problems?

Just bought a 2011 rubicon unlimited on monday. I want to install a
Smittybilt 76722 SRC Front Bumper and Smittybilt 97210 XRC 10 Black Winch. Has anyone run into dealership warranty problems with this type of modification?

I've been told that as long as the work is done at the dealership it shouldn't be a problem (i haven't had this confirmed yet) but I was really hoping to be able to do the work myself. I guess the main thing their concerned with is someone botching wiring to the battery.

Anyone have experience with this?

Just as a follow up... I spoke to the service manager at my local dealership and he said the bumper + winch wouldn't be a problem for the warranty at all. Of course, if I were to hook up the electrical wrong and pop a pcm or something, than that would be on me (but I figured that goes without saying).

I would get that in writing.
