Wow, quite the story. Mine, if written, would be at least 10x longer unfortunately. However, my particular Heep had zero modifications (unless you count grab handles and Mopar seat covers). In light of your all-too-typical Chrysler experience (5-Star or not), the WMD would no doubt state those grab handles put undo stress on the block's piss-poor machining to cause cam and lifter failures. :spin:So whats my point here? Some people have predetermined ideas as to what they should cover under warranty. They feel they have the power and exercise it as they see fit. It is not fair and most of the time you will lose when you run into someone like that. Not all dealerships will be like that but many are. Assuming the risk of no warranty is just part of modifying your Jeep.
