doing mods under warranty

Quick Question,bought a new tacoma,doing elec. mods like the locker mod,abs mod,fog light mod and dtrl mod plus led's in the cab. Will the dealership tell me I will or did void the warranty.
Did search but only came up with changing tires or lockers,voiding the warranty.Has anyone ever had anything said to them?

Warranty is only voided if the dealership can provide proof that your aftermarket additions caused the malfunction.
For example: if you install bigger tires and a lift but your a/c goes out your aftermarket stuff can not be a reason to deny your claim. Now if you have a lift and bigger tires and your driveshaft center support bearing fails then they can deny your claim because of the correlation. Hope that helps

I only modded a leased vehicle once (never again ) and everything I did was reversible back to stock. Personally if you're not going to keep it at the end of the lease I wouldn't do anything that can't be removed with no signs it had been there.

You've done a lot more than spliced a few wires! Basically anything short of something incredibly strange and unexplained happening to the interior and you're f-ed for warranty!
