I would think it would void the warranty. Call your local Ford dealership and see what they say.

if the dealership installs it, i would be covered under there warranty as a shop. it does not mean the factory warranty is good anymore. It is up to the individual dealerships to make the decision. Midpac Ford quotes

you run a chance of the warranty being voided on THAT AREA OF THE TRUCK. only if the parts you installed caused the failure. They will not void the whole warranty.

Exactly. But they can use bigger tires to void rear end, transmissions, etc, etc

If you care about a warranty I wouldn't mod until its up.
