So some of you that are knowledgable about the brand Jeep know that they offered last year a LifeTime PowerTrain Warranty with all their Jeep models.. Most of you aren't aware that I'm a multi-generation jJeep owner and have enjoyed these vehicles since I was a young boy helping my dad do upgrades and running Tellico Plains. Well in 2008 my wife and I took the plunge and decided to move up and trade in a 2004 TJ Wrangler for the JK Trail Rated Jeep Wrangler. Wider wheel base, more room, more economical, and could be very comfortabl in long rides, in fact we drove this jeep to KeyWest in May and enjoyed the entire drive. Well time has come and I've been doing my upgrades to the jeep now that it's broken in and covered the 35,000 new owner warranty. I've installed the 3"BDS Full suspension lift kit, rims and tires, hi-lift jacks, qik-disconnect sway-bar, cd radio and the list goes on. Well my next door neighbor is a Tier 4 Mechanic at Troncalli Jeep and Dodge. Tier 4 means he basically runs the show and knows his ins and outs when it comes to some of the most sophisticated computers in these car and trucks and practically can build them from scratch. I met with him the other day in regards to a new Ring and Pinion Install that I need done to both differentials front and back. I'm a great jeep mechanic, but in the 15+ years working on them with my pops he never got to that stage of teaching me how to do the upgrades and sadly my family lost him 2 years ago. So looking for guidance from my neighbor which is a great man, just informed me that by doing the upgrade it will void out my Lifetime powertrain warranty, heres the big kicker: EVEN IF TRONCALLI DOES IT it voids my warranty. I've never been so angry... But just as I told him I'm going to move forward with my upgrades as I had planned.
