No. Mopar parts installed by a Jeep dealer are the only ones with full warranty protection.

However, warranties may be different here than over there. Here, the warranty can only be voided for specific parts and only if the dealer/manufacturer can prove that the modification caused the issue. For example if you installed a lift kit (by any manufacturer) and then your axle gears self destructed the repair to those axles might not be covered due to the dealer saying the driveshaft angle caused the premature gear failure. However if your air conditioning also needed fixing they would have to fix that because the lift had nothing to do with the air conditioning failure.

I wonder if since I purchased the lifetime powertrain warranty AFTER the lift was installed if that provides be better protection if they try to deny a claim 10 years down the road?

You bought the lifetime warranty? Was the lifetime warranty an option when you bought your commander? Or was it something that you can buy?
