Does this mod void any part of Jayco's warranty?

No. . . . according to Dexter axle company as long as you use genuine Dexter parts and follow the installation instructions you are covered. If you are worried about the warranty, take your coach to a Dexter authorized installer.

Great! I'll definitely look into this.

maybe a silly question, but did you have to adjust your weight distribution or hitch height after installing the lift?

thanks

Question, if anyone from this group is still around - what is the diameter of the socket I need for the lug nuts on the X17A with 14"? Anyone know?

I have a 2015 x17z and need it lifted about 2 inches to get it in our driveway. Right now I'm using car loading ramps to give me the clearance I need. Not an ideal situation. I also spoke with Dexter about the #10 lift kit but they said I would need a AP-166 top mount to side mount adapter which has to be welded on. It appears to Dexrer that my axle is top mounted and the lift kit is for side mount only. Did you have that problem and have to weld the AP-166 adapter to make it work. It appears from your discussion that you were able just to bolt everything together. I'm worried about warranty issues with welding on the frame or axle. I'm not sure if the axle setup has changed from your year model to 2015. Was your axle top or side mount?

Check with your dealer. The lift kit is an option for all Jay Feather Ultralight Hybrids except the X23U. Not sure if it would have had to have been installed from the factory though.
