I have a 2011 rubicon and I'm looking to put 37s on it with a 5.13 gear ratio and new Tom woods driveshafts. If I do this will it void my warranty?

Maybe. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/reg...ty-127442.html

You should discuss it with your servicing dealer.

If you run a search for threads with the word "void" you'll come across everything you need to know. You also really need to read your warranty manual, which is reasonably short and sensible.

That said, the big picture is that the issue is not "voiding," it's "non-coverage." The items you mod aren't covered, and neither is anything damaged by the items you mod. The rest of your warranty remains intact.

So for a regearing and 37s, the gears themselves and the new tires certainly won't be covered by Chrysler. That's obvious. The bigger issue though is what could arguably be "damaged" by that regearing and those big tires.

For example, if your ball joints go or your axles break, I expect they won't be covered as Chrysler will point at your tires as the culprit. Similarly, the new gearing ramps up your RPMs, and whatever damage that could cause won't be covered. But if your paint bubbles or your radio craps out, I would expect those would be covered as they have nothing to do with tires and gears.

Make sense?
