Lifetime warranty after upgrades?

I am looking for feedback from you all, not about whether to purchase the warranty but if you were denied or had issues purchasing the warranty due to upgrades or modifications. I have 31k miles on my jeep and started inquiring about purchasing the warranty but there is a block on my vin number due to a repair that was performed AT A JEEP Dealer. Currently my existing warranty is active and unrestricted but they are telling me now they will not offer the lifetime warranty to me due to all the modifications i have done on the jeep. I have not had any modifications performed on the engine or transmission. As it is a 2015 i could not use a programmer other than to compensate for tire size and gears.

Did you ask them what the issue was? Was there a particular mod? Do you have to get the lifetime warranty? I'm going to get an extended warranty but actually have no interest in lifetime. Ill get 5-7 years total. If i still have at the end of warranty I'll buy a new one and start over.

yes i did ask what the issue was and i am still waiting for a definitive answer. frankly its BS because i pissed off someone at a different dealer when i wouldnt give them the repair since they tried to rip me off on pricing. they tagged my jeep and created a whole issue. as far as i am aware, i am blocked from any extended warranty from Chrysler. I dont even know if they are legally allowed to refuse me. I am covered either way up to 100k miles but i want to know i have the choice of purchasing the warranty if i want to move forward with it.

I didn't even consider an extended warranty since I planned to heavily modify my JKU and assumed that it would void any warranty that I purchased.

I currently have a 2014 Rubicon Unlimited with 7K miles on it, a 3.5" MC Game Changer with Fox Shocks and 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers.

Is there an extended warranty that would not claim to be voided with these mods? If so, I may want one.
