None of them should void warranty for a couple reasons

1. They have to prove that by putting on that level kit it directly effected something needed replaced under warranty.

2. If the dealership sells leveled or lifted trucks which most have or do at some point, why is it that those are warrantied but I ours isn’t!?!?

Check out/Google the Magnusson-Moss Act.

It details the issues related to aftermarket parts and warranties and what can and will constitute voidance or refusal to work on an aftermarket modified vehicle. Even some dealerships/shops have it posted for your info as well as the shops.

I put on a Bilstein level kit which is the exact same thing they offer for the Mopar one. I’ve never had any problems or anyone telling me my warranty was voided when I went in for service. Many on here use Bilsteins instead of spacer kits because some 2013+ have ball joint issues with the spacers. A lot of the newer leveling kits for these trucks now come with new UCA’s to deal with the ball joint issue.

It’s not the lift but the tire size that can void warranty if they chose too

What tire sizes are we talking here?

Think about it, the lift won’t stress your transmission or any drivetrain, only the larger heavier tires (rotational mass) that you add “potentially would”

I asked the guy that sells the warranty

http://www.ramforum.com/threads/genuine-mopar-service-contracts.109565/


If the truck has aftermarket lift kit and oversized tires will your warranty still be honored the same as it would a bone stock truck?


Hello, It would apply "IF" the tires are only 1 size bigger than what the original window sticker stated, and the lift is 2 inches or less.
Thanks,
Rodney

I’ve owned two Jeep JK’s, one gen 3 Ram, and two Gen 4 rams. The easiest way to find out what your dealer will tolerate as far as modifications is to simply ask the service manager.

My old dealer would accept warranty claims with lifts up to 3” on Jeeps and trucks with 35” tires.

The new dealer I go to will accept 6” lifts with 37” tires because they sell those on their lot too fresh out of the box.
