Default 2011 warranties and mods

Guys,
Pick up my new RAM tomorrow. Thinking about mods but dont want to void warranties. Wanted to ask your expert opinions before i do anything. I want to put a level kit, throttle body spacer, and Air intake system on it. If you have recco's for which ones to go with I appreciate it as well. Thanks.

The Magnusson - Moss Act prohibits a mfgr from voiding a warranty simply because the owner/user has modified an item. The modification does need to contribute to the failure. Also, the mfgr is not liable for warranty of an aftermarket part.

Now, you can get a lift or level kit and an intake installed by the dealer (Mopar Accessory) and they warrant them.

I'd forget about the TB spacer...haven't seen one yet that modified anything except the buyer's checking account balance.

For level kits, HellBent seems to have a good one.

Air intakes are pretty much the same so you can go with the aforementioned MOPAR Accessory CAI or any other good quality open filter type unit as you please. The enclosed & semi-enclosed box CAI's (AFE, Volant, Vararam) seem to work well too.

Now, instead of a TB spacer, when they become available, get a programmer. And consider doing an exhaust. The exhaust will help you take real advantage of the additional air in you are getting with the CAI. The programmer will help you realize the benefit of the better air in and out of the system.

Good luck with the mods!

In other words, the Magnuson-Moss act says:

Warranties can not be voided simply because an after-market part is used on your vehicle.
Warranty repairs can only be denied when it can be proven than an after-market part caused the failure.
The burden of proof is on the manufacturer the dealership must show that a specific after-market part caused a problem in order to deny a warranty claim.
When an after-market part is the cause of a specific problem, only the warranty for that problem can be denied. Other, unrelated problems are still covered under warranty.
The dealership or manufacturer can not require consumers to use a particular brand of part or require service to be completed at a specific location as a condition of their warranty.
