Motor warrantys with a lifted truck, help!!!

Have any of you with lifted trucks, mostly 8" or up have any problems with the dealership not wanting to warranty motor work? I have a slight oil leak and im thinking an injector or two are going bad and I need to warranty this soon. My problem is that I have a 8" lift on 38.5's and tomorrow im about to go up to a 10" on 40's unless someone convinces me otherwise. I really need to warranty this but I wont be able to for another week or two. Will they hassel me about it? Has anyone ever got hasseled for motor work on a lifted truck? Thanks in advance

some may have a problem but most wont. i use to bring my trucks to dealers when they were lifted and never had a problem. be sure to take your chip or programmer off before you go in tho.

The only problem I have run into was when my power steering box went out, and I can't really complain about them not covering that.

A lot of dealers don't like working on lifted trucks because it's a total pain in the azz to work on them when they are that high. All the time I'll see them take the wheel's off and then lower the truck to were the rotors are an inch off the ground. Would you like to pull an engine out of a lifted truck on 40's?

Agreed ^ Thats why I was concerned, I'd like them to be comfortable working on my truck then be in a bad mood while doing it. Things dont go well in that situation.
