I'm certainly not trying to rain on your parade again, but I keep seeing this and it's absolutely wrong. Mopar accessories are still "aftermarket" accessories and only carry the warranty on the product itself for defect. The Jeep is only warranted as it was originally configured. The installation is only warranted on workmanship.

....where am I going with this? I know several people that had Mopar cold air intakes on their JK/JKU and then had an oil consumption issue that was diagnosed to be from dust intake. In spite of the fact that a dealer installed a Mopar accessory the engine replacement was not covered because it had been modified. The intake was installed correctly so the dealer wasn't at fault, and there was no damage or defect to the CAI so Mopar wasn't at fault either. I also know someone that purchased a Mopar lift from their dealer only to have ball joints not be covered after only 5k miles on the odometer because they stated the lift as the cause (false, but it didn't matter).

I completely understand not having the facilities, desire, or know-how to install an accessory. However, getting a "house" brand and having a dealer install it isn't a golden ticket to a warranty claim. The only way this works is if the modifications are done prior to the purchase and are included in the original sale documentation. Even here, claims are often handled by the dealer as FCA will kick them back.

If the metal behind the slider starts to rust, Jeep can easily say it's because of the aftermarket accessory. At that point, it would be on you to pay for the repair.

True but from what I understand RRO Products aren't ever plug and play. I didn't wanna possibly deal with that whole mess. But I'm sure I will when when my winch bumper comes lol

I was thinking the same thing. I wish all service places had this. Although it never stopped EZ Lube and Jiffy Lube from cheating people including reporters with hidden cameras no multiple occasions here in LA... so there is that, but I'd love to be able to watch the service being done on my car this way. I guess you can stand around the garage bays and hover, but that seems like a way to make them nervous and annoyed...
