stuff that wont void my extended warrenty.
i have a bone stock 08 hemi ram QC 4x4 big horn and i have an extended lifetime warrenty. i want to lift it but according to the dealershit all aftermarket parts have to me MOPAR. MOPAR parts are fairly expensive and ive heard for it to be covered under my warrenty it has to be installed my a chrysler, dodge, jeep or ram dealer which would kill me(fuckin 90 buks an hour for labor my ass!!!) but idk how true that is.
i want to fit a little bit bigger tires on it(AT's or maybe even MT's) and do away with the stock wrangler hp's which are shit. im thinking about just a 2 inch leveling kit so i can fit 35's anyone kno anthing about these extended warrentys and what i could do to my truck and not void it????

You can put the lift on and it isn't going to completely void your warranty. Don't listen to dealers on warranty issues, as most don't fully understand how it works when it comes to aftermarket parts.
For example, if you install the lift and have U-joints go bad or suspension related issues they may not warranty it because it was a result of the lift. Some dealers may be a little more friendly and take care of it anyway.
If your window regulator goes, or a CKP sensor or something of that nature, they can't deny warranty based on your lift. Some dealers use modifications as a way to say that you must abuse your truck and the failure is a result of customer abuse. It is in their best interest to perform the work as they are making some money on it but if they have gotten audited in the past from OEMs they may be hesitant to blur the line a bit. Pair that with a gross misunderstanding of warranty, and they aren't going to want to touch your truck.
Orchard Chrysler/Dodge/Ram/Jeep up in Washington is pretty mod friendly.
