Warranty Conditions

  • Warranties are subject to the terms and conditions below
  • All warranty considerations apply for original retail purchaser only
  • Note - The following constitutes A.R.E.'s current warranty. Our warranty has been through various changes and additions over time. For your specific warranty, please refer to the warranty document you received at the time of purchase.


Diamond Edition Deluxe Commercial Unit Limited 3-Year Warranty
All A.R.E. Diamond Edition Deluxe Commercial Units purchased on or after March 1, 2015 are covered for a period of three (3) years against structural defects. This warranty applies to the unit body, which includes the exterior skin, framework and mounting rails only. Diamond Edition Deluxe Commercial Units are guaranteed not to abnormally fade for a period of one (1) year. Regular washing and waxing of your Diamond Edition DCU will help to preserve the original cosmetic appearance.


Hardware
For the original purchaser, lock cylinder, lock housing, fiberglass wings, and center mounted brake lights are warranted for three (3) years from your retail date of purchase against failure due to defects in material and workmanship.

Gas props used to assist in opening doors are covered under a five (5) year limited warranty against failure due to loss of pressure. This warranty does not cover damage due to misuse or neglect. Never wipe the shaft of the props with anything other than a dry soft cloth. Regular operation of the props will actually increase the life by lubricating the seals and shafts.

Window and door frames and hardware, remote keyless entry, 12 volt and rope lighting, battery lights and Prop Light switch are warranted for one (1) year from your purchase date from an authorized A.R.E. retailer, from failure due to defects in material or workmanship. Also covered for one year are all seals, brackets, locking hardware, and screens. Glass breakage is not covered under this or any other warranty.


THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. ANY SUCH WARRANTIES ARE DISCLAIMED. THIS A.R.E. WRITTEN WARRANTY IS THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY PROVIDED FOR ALL A.R.E PRODUCTS.

EXCEPT FOR AS SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN THIS A.R.E. LIMITED WARRANTY, A.R.E., ITS SUCCESSORS OR ASSIGNS, SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DIRECT DAMAGES AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL A.R.E., ITS SUCCESSORS OR ASSIGNS, BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES due to installation, use, misuse, abuse, neglect, or otherwise regarding any product sold, distributed or manufactured by A.R.E. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

STATE LAW MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

Exclusions
Not covered under this warranty is structural failure due to neglect, alterations, addition of equipment, abuse, accident, off-road driving, use in competitive racing, vibrations from worn or altered truck suspensions or sound equipment, or acts of nature including but not limited to tornados, hurricanes, hail, and earthquakes.

If a known problem exists with an A.R.E. product, it is the owner’s responsibility to immediately bring the issue to the attention of an authorized A.R.E. Dealer. Failure to do so could result in additional, more severe problems and constitutes (but is not limited to) neglect, which is not covered.

Stress cracks in the fiberglass body that begin from a window, boot, door opening or from the base rail are considered structural or material flaws and are covered under warranty for as long as the A.R.E. truck cap is owned by the original purchaser. The exception to this warranty is when it is determined by A.R.E. or its authorized dealer that such stress crack(s) were caused from misuse, abuse, collision or competitive racing. If a stress crack occurs it should be repaired without delay to prevent future failures due to neglect.

Stress cracks in the exterior finish caused by impact are not covered under warranty. A stress crack caused by impact from the inside of the truck cap has the appearance of a "star" on the outside surface. A stress crack caused by impact to the outside of the truck cap will cause circular stress cracks. Both stress cracks radiate from a center point(s) of impact. Impact cracks are usually on the sidewalls of the body. A mark may or may not be visible at the point of impact.

Consequential damage or loss due to the installation, use, misuse, abuse or neglect of A.R.E. truck caps is the sole responsibility of the pickup owner and operator. Paint wear to your truck's bed is normal and is expected with the installation and the use of any truck cap or tonneau and is the sole responsibility of the pickup owner. Precautions should be taken by the pickup owner to prevent corrosion. A.R.E. shall not be held liable for any consequential loss or damages arising from the purchase, installation or use of these products. No implied warranty or fitness for a particular purpose, if any, shall extend for a longer duration than the terms of this written warranty.

In some cases you may be charged labor by the A.R.E. retailer performing the service, if the product was purchased through a different retail outlet.

Warranty Claims
In the event of a warranted product failure it is A.R.E.'s discretion to repair or replace the defective part(s). A.R.E. reserves the right to replace any parts with current production parts of equal or greater quality and value. All claims must be made to the authorized A.R.E. dealer from whom you purchased your truck cap
