They didn’t start offering the Lifetime MaxCare until 2009, so no TJ’s are covered.It could make sense in some rare occasions. The way the lifetime warranties are, if the value of your jeep is less then the cost of the repair, they buy you out. So lets say you had a ragged TJ with 400,000 miles that was only worth $1,000.00 and the motor goes out. They are going to give you the value of the jeep and you no longer have the warranty. So if someone has an old jeep with a lifetime warranty it might be worth cashing in. Some people buy the lifetime warranties thinking they can get new parts on their jeep for the rest of their life. Once the value drops you are SOL.
I have a sneaky feeling that if they offered to buy you out and you declined, it might be real hard to get a claim through in the future. Not that an auto company would act that way, just saying...... I've heard some bad stories from people getting stuff covered under their warranties, it might be even harder now. I myself only had to make a claim once on an aftermarket warranty for a transmission and I had not problems, paid the $100.00 and got a new transmission put in. That was on a used Durango, years ago.
