If my gas mileage is affected, could it be fixed with a programmer? Is the warranty voided once I get this lift installed? Thanks so much for any help.
Your gas mileage will drop just due to the aerodynamics of having a lift, not to mention the larger mass you have to turn with larger tires. It cannot be fixed with a programmer and there is no programmer for 2011 yet. The warranty will be voided on any factory components that fail as a direct result of any modification you make. But everything else will be fine, like your engine, electrical, etc.
