Default New gears and warranty

Looked into new rear gears today. Service tech at my dealership quoted $480 to install which seemed reasonable but when I talked to parts about costs he said it would void my powertrain warranty???

Anyone know different?

Parts might be right. The warranty covers what the truck was built with. If they put in new gears and another component fails and can show the new gears are the cause, you'd be s.o.l.

it is possible to add gears that were an option during purchase and have this added by the dealer to your option list through dealerconnect......

i am doing the same as soon as time permits.....

the parts areat the dealer.....i know i work there....

you will also want to do a trac lock while your in there or the new gears will be a waste cause youll have no traction.....

Sprintertech,

Is there a time limit for this dealerconnect thing? I puchased my truck in October 2010.

I'm wanting to go from 3.21 to 4.10 myself.


Thanks!

The Trac Lock is a good idea with the 4:10 gears. If the gears are Chrysler/Mopar and the dealership does the work, you will get at least a 12/12k warranty on parts and labor and I personally don't see how they could void the 3/36k.

no he doesnt.......3.21 and 3.55 rears have open diffs....to get the anti-spin option from the factory you would have to have 3.92 or 4.11 rear gears...

this applies to 09+ rams.....
