    I'm on a lease but I can't find a copy of it atm...I might've lost it

    I'm wondering what is says with regards to modifications and voiding the warranty. I have lots I want to do to my little truck but I can't remember if Im allowed :confused:

    I know it states that if I walk away from it at the end of the lease, it pretty much has to be in original state + have fairly new tires on it. But I won't be doing this so as long as I'm not voiding the warranty life is good.

    Anyone have a lease handy they can look at? I'm planning on lifting her, swapping out the stock muffler, maybe the grill, interior stuff life a deck and speakers...not sure what else atm.

    It's an '08 2x4 access cab if that makes a difference.

    If you end of buying it, you can do whatev er the hell you want to do to it. If you turn it in at the end of the lease, you are not thinking clearly, because of all the money you would loss. YOu could put it back to stock though and then turn it in. best advice is to not do it till the lease is over or paid in full.

    I will buy it out at the end of the lease. But I want to make sure that anything I do won't void my warranty. I'm not sure if it this works different with a lease vs financing.

    Like if I put a lift kit in it, then later on say I'm having tranny problems, go to the stealership and they tell me too bad, modifications like this void my warranty and I gotta pay.

    that's nothing to do with the lease parameters. THe factory warranty will void only if they link it to your mods that f-ed it up.
