Re: Does lifting a rig void warranty?
No, It does not void the warranty. I strongly suggest you DO NOT have the dealer do the install unless they are familiar with doing aftermarket, non-Toyota part installations. Or unless you personally know and trust the work of a particular Toyota Technician. I foolishly had my dealer do a number of mods after they assured me they were competent to do the work. I was originally going to take my truck to an offroad specialty shop for the work, but the dealer offered me a price that was too good to be true. They did the OME lift, front and rear bumpers, quickshifter, headers, TRD CAI, and exhaust for less than $900. When I got the truck back, I inspected the work and noticed some VERY sloppy work (Loose hardware, Missing hardware, Improper exhaust installation, Improper Quickshifter installation..... The only work I didn't end up redoing myself or having redone professionally was the headers. EVERY other thing they did had to be redone. The level of incompetence displayed in the quality of the work was shocking. I am a novice at best when it comes to mechanics and I DID do a better job than the techs at the dealership. I'm sure there are plenty of really good Toyota Techs out there who take pride in their work and do a good job. Just make sure you have one of them working on your truck if you let the dealer do aftermarket work. I suggest you either do ALL work yourself, or take it to a reputable Offroad specialty business.
