Here is a start for reading.
What Voids Your Vehicle's Warranty?

I also ran across the same warranty/mod question several times and with several threads here on the forum with good discussion, just not sure where abouts I seen it here....otherwise I would point you in the right direction.

I like this section of that link:


From (Edmunds):

Aftermarket parts or modifications: This aspect of warranty coverage has a great deal of gray area. Although many dealers would have you think otherwise, simply having an aftermarket part or modifying your vehicle cannot void your warranty.
"Some dealerships may say 'just because you have a [cold air] intake or something' that the whole vehicle warranty is voided," explains Loren Wong, Edmunds associate business analyst and a former warranty administrator for BMW and Acura. "That's not true."
The saving grace for consumers is the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975. The act states that a dealer must prove that aftermarket equipment caused the need for repairs before it can deny warranty coverage.
However, if the reason for a parts failure is unclear, a dealer will usually charge you to diagnose the vehicle. If the aftermarket part was not properly installed or a modification led to a component failure, it is within the dealer's right to void the warranty for that part, and you will have to pay for the repairs out of pocket. If the aftermarket parts had nothing to do with the repairs in question, you will be refunded the fee for the diagnosis.
Any aftermarket performance parts on your vehicle can cause a dealer to suspect that you either drive the car hard or possibly race it. "Although they may not void warranties," Wong added, "modifications may raise a red flag when vehicles are in for service. If consumers who mod their cars do a little research, they may find certain dealerships that are a little more 'mod-friendly.'"

So what I am reading is say I put a 6" suspension lift on the truck and the engine blows.... since the suspension would not cause the engine to blow they technically cannot deny your coverage on the engine? But say my CV joints go and I have a 6" suspension lift they can deny the coverage on the CV's right?

Its Reletive to the dealer, some will cover the CV Joints and the Engine and some only the engine and others none. I have read where some even get the dealer to install the 6" lift and there told no issues for warranty, we cover anything. So moral of the story, talk to your local dealer and ask them what they will do for you and what they wont. And if what they tell you does not jive with your mods, get a second and third opinion from other dealers.
