For those of you with lifted trucks..

I see alot of guys on here with gorgeous trucks with all different lift and tire combinations. My question is, doesn't lifting your truck void the factory warranty? Maybe that's a stupid question but I've been shopping around for a new truck myself and would love to lift it, but the factory warranty is my concern.

I might be wrong but I think that lifting the truck just voids your suspension warranty.. Don't think that it voids drivetrain and such.

The Dealership I bought mine from did it for me and gave me a warrenty with it... so maybe you should trying letting a ford dealer do it... its a little more expensive but kinda worth it in the long run

Never buy new so it doesn't matter for me. The amount I save, I can afford to fix it now and then. Plus im getting little over 15mpg right now. I have just replaced a leaky fuel pump. Has to be worth a couple of mpgs.

This is correct.

If a dealership threatens to void your warranty over a lift kit, find another dealer.

If the dealer wants to void the warrantee they will. Will say the oversize tires cause increased strain on drivetrain or something similar. I had a cai on mine and took it in cause it wouldn't start, and they blamed it on the cai, turned out to be the alternator but wouldn't fix it till I returned it to stock. I guess my point is if your worried about warrantee, leave it stock or have the dealer put your lift on.

Buy the truck off the lot and have them throw a lift and tires into it as a package deal, they will warrenty it all together, thats pretty much what they did with mine,..... I have a lift kit warrenty and a off road wheels and tire warrenty.... not too shabby

For what it's worth, before I put lift and tires on, I called the warranty folks from Ford. Of course they warned me about programmers and messing with intake/exhaust. I mentioned lift and tires and they said up to 6" lift and up to 37" tires won't affect the warranty. They won't warranty new stuff we put on (as I would expect) but as long as its not bigger than those parameters it's all good. I guess it really just depends on the dealer, but that's what the FMC warranty folks told me.
