Talking When you need the warranty

I'm in central jersey, Freehold area, and was wondering where to go for warranty work when you need it and have a modified rig? I refuse to go where i bought my Jeep because I didn't care for their "customer service". I have heard horror stories of Jeeps going in for let's say a transmission, only to be told it went bad because of the lift/suspension lift/larger tires/added weight. The dealership will then "red flag" the VIN of your jeep, and you can't get any warranty work done. So, what local dealerships will honor the warranty, regardless of what mods are done? Yes, i know about the warranty law, just looking to avoid any and all hassle.

Yeah I know about that. But when I hear horror stories like this, ATTENTION - Chrysler WILL VOID Your Warranty if You Lift Your Jeep, I would still like to know about a shop that will just do the warranty work regardless of mod's.

Hey guys, I'm in Marlton. I got a '08 JK 6-speed about a month ago and I know there are some recalls open on it that I want to get checked out. Also, I just want someone that knows Jeeps to look it over and make sure everything is good. It is lifted (suspension and a little body lift also-I think) and it's on 33" Trxus MTRs. Would you guys reccomend Lucas Jeep for regular work as well as warranty/recall stuff? Or is there somewhere else? I've heard bad things about Cherry Hill and I'm not giving them my business. I actually know someone that is currently in a lawsuit with them.

Lucas Jeep will be good for all that stuff. We hold out meetings there as well. As a club member you can get discount to parts and service too.

Ok, thanks for the tip. The only club I've heard about around here is NJJA. Is it that or something else?
