    First, I know this thread is old.. however it is pinned and I am answering a direct question that I did not see anyone else answer AND I have a question that relates to this topic...

    I *believe* it would cover any modification the selling dealer performed.. I am no expert and not trying to give advice just the extended warranty contract for Toyota specifically states:

    "All manufacturer-original equipment parts installed by the manufacturer or your selling dealer are are cover under this agreement for the mechanical failure. Unless otherwise excluded..." And it lists all the normal wear and tear stuff after that
    Now I did specifically ask my selling dealer if I opted for them to put a lift kit on my Tacoma if it would be covered and they stated it would be IF I did the Toyota OEM lift kit which consists of Bilstein shocks front and back and I think he said add-a-spring to the rear.

    My question, does this sound correct? I do not want to do something that might come to bite me down the road. I want to do light off-road and weekendlander'ing

    When I worked at a dealership the guys used to laugh when people brought in a modified vehicle and claimed it had to be Warranty because of the Magnusson Act. People would threaten Lawsuits until they realized how expendive Lawyers are. The Warranty covers the vehicle they sold, not the one you built. Yes, a 4 inch lift and 50% bigger tires wear things out faster. Have fun battling a Dealership, they’re more experienced than you and probably have a better lawyer. To be fair they didn’t care if you got different wheels etc. as long as they were close to stock.

    It is good to dream. However the internet would be a lonely place if people knew what they were talking about. Myself included.

    Keep the faith, societies ebb, flow and fail.
