Default How to void your warranty?

I was talking to a fellow Ranger owner on AIM last night and we were talking about voiding warranty hes got a 3" lift with 35" tires and a bunch of other mods and hes just pretty much got it in his head that hes voided his warranty.... I have a 3" spindle lift about to throw on my 09 with 33" mudders, if I take it into my dealer will they just look at me and go your %*#$ed son or what? haha I'm sure there's some stories on here cause alot of people have there truck's lifted

They can void the warranty on the suspension parts.

With him going with 35's they could also void the warranty on drive train parts.

explanation of how this law affects you, your mods to your vehicle and the dealer can be found here

Easier to understand explanation of the law:

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302C) is a federal law which regulates warranties for the protection of consumers. The essence of the law concerning aftermarket auto parts is that a vehicle manufacturer may not condition a written or implied warranty on the consumers using parts or services which are identified by brand, trade, or corporate name (such as the vehicle maker's brand) unless the parts or service are provided free of charge. The law means that the use of an aftermarket part alone is not cause for denying the warranty. However, the law's protection does not extend to aftermarket parts in situations where such parts actually caused the damage being claimed under the warranty. Further, consumers are advised to be aware of any specific terms or conditions stated in the warranty which may result in its being voided. The law states in relevant part: "No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumers using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade or corporate name..."

LIke posted above..won't "void" the entire warranty of the vehicle....however...lift, bigger tires/and or rims....will cause more wear and tear on the drive train...as long as they can show what you did caused the issue, the warranty claim if something happens won't be honored....

so you take the truck in because the transmission is slipping...and you have 35" tires and so on....hmmmm might not be a happy camper...but then it also depends on your dealership...not sure how ford is with the off roaders....but when I was driving jeeps...you could find a dealership or two that would warranty everything unless the part itself was aftermarket....YMMV

For what it's worth my dealership loves the body lift on my truck, says it was installed well, and they have continued to honor my warranty on the entire truck. Even when replacing my clutch/slave he mentioned my tires probably weren't helping the situation but that it wasn't the cause of the problem.

x2 marie

is there a problem with people piecing together for a mod? Thats what this community is all about, sharing your knowlege and parts and ideas with other ranger enthusiasts.

oh, and just FYI, Rangers don't come from the factory with a BL, therefore its custom.... and since hers is pieces together by a lot of users, that makes it more custom
