Need engine for my 2008

Well, I'm sitting at the dealership now. My engine is obviously blown. I do have the lifetime power train but I'm lifted so not holding my breath it's covered.

Driving down the road at 40.
Got told today the Spal fan may void the warranty since I have it hooked up direct through my Spod.

Jeff's Jeep Yard does tons of Hemi/LS/4BT swaps and usually has low mileage 3.8s for sale pretty cheap. They can also do the install.

Well it was denied, said it was due to mods, lift tires fan. However, he said they didn't restrict it and basically said another dealer could warranty it.

Just did the Spal fan on my '08. What is their logic in voiding the warranty on the fan?

When I asked them to explain how the fan and lift caused the engine to spin a bearing the service manager was unable to give me an answer. He just kept saying over and over that the general manager said, the general manager said. I told him that she (reagional manager) needed to prove that the fan and lift caused the damage..I got no where.
