    I'm in the same boat. I might ask my service tech just to see. I'm just concerned that the 3.09 is only good for a year not 5 like the stock diff.

    My dealer here in Northern Alabama is the exact same way, they do mods to Vipers, Charger/Challenger and Jeeps. I stopped in last week to speak with the service manager and asked how he felt about installing my Mopar lowering spring kit' he said he would have no issue at all and brought me in the back to show me all the performance mod (i.e. elective) work they were currently doing. Told him I was ordering the 3.09 rear end and he ended price matching from the various online sources and had it delivered last Thursday. I've got an appointment on Tuesday for them to install all of the above mentioned and glad I have a cooperative and engaged dealer.

    My local dealer told me they would alter the warrenty (wouldn't say void, but flagged and altered warrenty was mentioned multiple times) when I asked if they would do the 3.09.

    She said because that's not what the car came with factory, it would alter the warrenty.
    So, then I went home and altered it myself and "kept my warrenty". Lol

    We are more knowledgeable of our vehicles then thw dealer here. So we prefer doing the work ourselves. Only on a must have to warranty then big maybe.

    Yes it got done and they did a great job...they are my go to place from now on. They are experienced at everything they do including performance and mods...I am currently working on other goodies and they are who will be doing the work. Great staff and very reputable. I assure you this is the place to go. Tell them Charles with the black Hellcat sent you.
    When you call or go there ask for Kurt.

    If and when you decide to work with Colonial Dodge in Hudson Mass make sure you speak to Kurt he is the service advisor and tell him Charles with the black Hellcat referred you. He will definitely make sure you are well taken care of as well as have his SRT tech do all the work. Very respectful, knowledgeable and professional. Rest assured they are the go to place and you will be very pleased with the results. If there is anything else I can do for you just let me know.
