Default New arrival

I joined about a week ago and have been looking at all the info. lots of good stuff in here.
little bit of info on me and mine.
retired Air Force (25yrs) F-16 & F-117 Crew chief
Moved from Japan to Phx Az. working at Luke AFB as Civil Service now.
Owned a 2001 F150 Ex Cab 4x4 for about two months then traded in for a 2010 XLT 4.0 V6 Ex Cab Ranger. Less room but didn't need that big of a truck anyway. wanted the MPG, parking in garage and warranty. unlimited 5 yr/70000 miles. (no worries)

I hate that the ranger comes so plain jane though.
I would like to up-date with some of the mods I have read about (auto dim mirror, remote start and OHC) looking for a bed liner and maybe tool box as well.
I do have a question about the MODs though. will they viod my warranty if I do them my self or can I pay the price and have the dealer do them? ( I plan on having the dealer do the remote start)
I really like both the mirror and OHC, but only if it wont cost me the warranty.

Welcome. I'm pretty sure the dealer will not do the mods other than the remote start. If you do an aftermarket remote start that should not void the warranty and it will definately be cheaper for you going aftermarket. If you do get a remote start, I suggest Best Buy, If for whatever reason you need that remote taken off, If they install it they will take it out or swap it to another vehicle for free. I also suggext calling the dealer to see about the OHC and auto dim mirror voiding the warranty. I have had some dealers say a part is not under warranty, and another dealer said it would be covered under warranty. You just have to do a little research, some mom and pop dealerships try to pocket the money if its a warranty issue.

Brian, as for as the warranty issue "Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act"

the manufacture has to prove that what ever you did made what ever failed...in a nutshell as the OHC the headliner would NO longer be covered because youcut a hole in it.
