Re: Upgrading a Leased Vehicle
Leasing company CAN ding you for modifications that alter stock delivery equipment. Lease inspector will probably not even notice having OE (higher package) wheels on the car. Obvious aftermarket wheels will be a problem.
Having leased many vehicles, and heavily modified some of my leases - buy OE overland or limited wheels, save the stock ones and put back on at lease return. Sell the upgraded ones. My modified leases have been returned to more-or-less stock form and I've gotten decent money back for part outs. Some small changes - (all original from higher package vehicles) - headlights, headlight switches, tail light assemblies, wheels, etc - have been left on the car without the notice of the lease inspector.
Finally, (bearing in mind that i've never leased from ally before) - lease inspection normally takes place by an outside company, contracted by the leasing bank - their technicians are rarely very well trained on the actual OE equipment of a vehicle. Keep in mind that the jeep DEALER itself will most likely have nothing to do with a lease return/inspection, other than acting as a drop off point, incorrectly suggested above.
