Based on the pictures I posted, sure, it's not a 'big deal', as some have suggested... that is, until the console or lid cracks and splits, which at some point it will.
The simple solution is to just hold and support the lid when open, and don't allow it to open so far as to put all the weight on the back edge of the lid. Just seems weird that Jeep had a great design for 2010 & 2011 models, and then either switched designs or had a different design for different trim models, as mentioned for the leather interior.
Will be interesting to see if someone here comes up with a practical solution that we can implement.
