Default 6" lift warranty question

If i was to buy a 6" lift with 35' tires, would this void my suspension warranty? Or better yet void anything? im saving up and i want to go higher so this is deffinately a possibility. otherwise i will have to just put 33" tires and go with a cold air intake along with exhaust etc... any help will be greatly appreciated

Yes, Dodge will not warranty your suspension nor any bearings at the transmission, differential, any intermediate driveshaft bearing, etc...

Good to know thanks at least I know now to wait until my warranty's up to lift my truck...I will probably just put 33s on there and do some little things

You could shell out for the Mopar 4" lift if you really wanted it right now! Some dealers will still honor the warranty even though they don't have to. I would ask you dealer the same question. The worst you can hear is no...

I think it vary's, sometimes your dealership will have the final say, they told me they"ll warranty up to a 4" lift, doesn't have to be mopar, but they must install it (aka they wants there 40/hour garage rate haha)

This isn't totally correct. The only parts most dealers won't cover are the aftermarket parts. In my case I talked to the dealer before installing my lift and they have no problem honoring the warranty on factory parts. Also, if I'm not mistaken there's a law on the books that prevents them from simply not honoring a warranty because of aftermarket parts.

BS...If you wear out a bearing because your pinion angle is over spec due to your aftermarket lift kit, forget about getting warranty on that OEM part.

The Magnusson-Moss Act is what you are referring to. Basically, it outlines the duties and the rights of the buyer and seller with respects to warranty. It also provides for ajudication/arbitration and other forms of settlement when a dispute arises.

Dodge is perfectly within their rights to disclaim warranty coverage for an OEM part that fails due to a modification.

The difference is they can't disclaim warranty for an OEM part that is not associated nor was the failure caused by the modification.

To illustrate: You lift your truck and your radio head unit quits. You have warranty on your head unit.

Certainly, the burden of proof that an item should be warranted is on the buyer and equally the burden of proof that an item cannot be warranted due to the buyer's actions is on the seller.

You are correct that they cannot simply void your warranty because you have mods. And they are not obligated to warrant aftermarket parts.

But if the mod contributed to the OEM part failure, that's pretty much it as far as collecting on the warranty.

No BS, but believe what you want. When I had my '07 Ram I put a leveling kit on it and trashed the CV joints in 6 months. My service adviser told me point blank they knew it was from the kit, but they replaced the CV joints under warranty, no problem.
