BTW MTH-I see you've edited your orig response to my post a couple times now....double speak....wow. I hear sirens.
Edited for clarity. I do it all the time, particularly where--as here--the replies I get leave me wondering if the person read what I thought I said.
So -Chrysler's warranty doesn't really mean anything-and if you take your car to a dealer-they'll do everything they can to not cover it.
I just don't get it.....has anyone commenting on this modified their jeep with a Mopar part then submitted a warranty claim-or are we playing in fantasy land?
Look, I'm not trying to pick a fight either. This forum doesn't tolerate pissing contests, and that's one of the great things about it.
My issue is that dealers suggesting that Mopar lifts installed by them are the only way to "keep your warranty" are a major pet peeve of mine. It's false, and is nothing but a ploy to convince consumers to buy wildly overpriced lifts and installs.
And it sounds like you're drinking some of the Kool-Aid.
Go back and read what your training taught you to say. I had to read it a few times myself. It really says: Parts and install. That's it. If a shock leaks because it's defective, we'll replace it at no charge. If our tech didn't tighten all the bolts, we'll do it at no charge.
You know who else provides that warranty? Everybody. If I go to 4WheelParts for a Pro Comp lift and my shock leaks, they'll replace it. And if the bolts aren't tightened, they'll tighten them.
You know what your training jingle doesn't say? That my driveshaft is covered. Or that any other damage caused by the lift is covered. You know why it doesn't say that? Because its not covered.
You know who else won't cover damage caused by an installed lift? Everybody. If I go to 4WheelParts for a Pro Comp lift and my driveshaft boot tears, they might do me a favor and let me snag an extra out of their parts bin, but their not obligated to.
You know how I know all this? Because I actually read the documents. You should try it. Unless overridden by state statute, they're the only thing that binds Chrysler on this topic.
Again, I have found nothing even suggesting that Chrysler will warranty damages caused by ANY mod, including a dealer-installed Mopar lift. To the contrary, such damage is expressly excluded from coverage in both the warranty manual that came with your vehicle as well as the Mopar performance parts catalog. Chrysler warrants your vehicle as it left the factory, any changes you make (whether dealer-installed or not, whether Mopar or not) will not be covered and neither will any damage caused by those changes.
That's not "fantasy land."
And by all means, if you're aware of something that indicates otherwise, I'd be happy to look at it. I'd actually like to be wrong on this--then there'd actually be a reason to buy a Mopar lift.
