Nice looking setup though .
The Chrysler dealer took the truck to the snow plow installer and picked it up before I took delivery of the new truck. There is a snow plow prep package disclaimer on the window sticker, but the truck is equipped with a 160 amp alterator, heavy duty engine cooling, heavy duty transmission oil cooler and rated to tow 10,000 lbs so I think it is a myth that the factory won't honor the warranty....unless there is obvious abuse of some kind.
In 1962 I bought a new '62 Plymouth max wedge savoy set up at the factory for drag racing. The dealer sent a mechanic to the track (no charge) to help me prep it for each race. During one early race the transmission blew and the dealer said the warranty was void during such time as the car was on a race track. He suggested we push it off track property and then it would be covered. I kept racing it after they replaced the transmission.
