Default Modifying and maintaining warranty?

I bought a Ram 1500 last week, my first Chrysler product and beyond a reasonable doubt the best vehicle I've ever personally owned. As such I ponied up for the extended Chrysler warranty. Naturally I’d like to do some light “upgrade” work, however I DO NOT want to jeopardize the warranty!

However I’m hearing that there are mods you can make without irritating Chrysler to the point of voiding your warranty. Does Chrysler have a listing somewhere of approved vendors/mods that can be made? I’m guessing that if I were to use MOPAR parts installed by my local dealer there wouldn’t be too much of an issue.

Who would I talk to about these kinds of questions?

Honestly, talk to your Service Manager. Since thats the guy whom will report the mods you do, such as headers, tuner, etc. If its a lift,lowering, etc he may be ok with, some, they have to report.

chips pretty much void the warranty. some say some brands do not leace a foot print in the ecm, but all techs have told me they do. a lift , depending on high you go, does put a bit of strain on some front end components. your service manager may be ok with mods, but then you are tied to that dealer. if you take a trip and have problems you are screwed.

I put a 2" GF rear drop on my Ram. Would that void anything?

it will be up to the service manager if that drob kit voids warranty. if a component fails and they can trace it back to a mod they can try and say warranty voided.

I don't think there would be a lot of "try" to it. They just would. Not to say there aren't other factors involved, such as are you related to said service manager, or do you at least have a few beers with him a few times a week... other than that you're gunna be on the shit end of the stick.
