If you email Chrysler customer care and ask them, they will respond "it may" void your warranty. I could not get them to give me a straight answer on whether running 285/75-17 would affect the tranny warranty. I figured that they would probably void the wheel bearings but that is no big deal. I was more concerned with more expensive parts like transmission, differentials etc.

Although Chrysler can question any warrant claim if there are modifications or non-MOPAR parts involved, some JK's come from the factory with 32" tires. Unless the tires are 14.5" wide and have a radical tread, they would be hard pressed to make a case that the tires caused the issues. As is currently being discussed in another current thread, the mods wil not void your warranty in general, but they can lead to Chrysler/dealer challenging a specific warranty claim.

Running 33" is a moderate mod.

When I was running 33 inch tires on aftermarket wheels and one of the tire pressure sensors went dead I had it replaced under warranty no questions asked.

I would say that just a 33" tire, as long as it is on your original stock wheel, with no added spacer, will not void your warranty.

To void a warranty, the MOD has to have caused, or contributed to a failure, (which is called progressive damage).

So no, a 33" tire, shouldn't cause any failures!!!!!

I would, run this scenario by your Dealer, and get their input........
