Dealer or no Dealer?

We have a 2010 F250 King Ranch which has 7000 smiling mile it.
When we picked it up at the dealer, the diesel mechanic made a point to tell us if we did anything to the truck, other than FORD approved parts, it would possibly void our warranty.
Well, as most of us, I didn't follow his advise and added some small mod's, just because I can't leave anything alone.
Banks Breather Kit, Banks exhaust (which has the coupler) and the Banks IQ programmer.
I would really like to continue taking the truck to the dealer, but don't want any crap from them regarding my mod's.
If anyone could offer some insight on this, it would be appreciated.

Thanks!

It depends a lot on the dealer you're using. Some don't care about mods, other hate them . There are some 'mod friendly' dealers around the country. On the other hand, they technically have to find that a mod is what caused the failure, whatever that may be
