I have a 2 month old JKU that I just noticed after it's 1st real washing & waxing that I have crack/blemish on each front fender. I brought it to the Dealer today and they took pictures and sent them to Chrysler for warranty approval. Chrysler came back saying it is normal. I told them to reply no it is not and I want to see a Zone Rep in person to have him see it in person. Anyone else run into this problem ?
Thanks Rob ....
Yes that is normal. I have an 08 but not as noticeable on black. Friend just bought a Gecko green Sahara and it is very noticeable. Go to your dealer and look at other JKs and compare.
The mold may be the same but the plastic is different between the flat back and painted fenders.
2008 Black and Khaki Sahara Unlimited Trax-Lok rear diff. 3.5" Rock Krawler fr springs, rear TeraFlex 2.5 BB, 37x12.50x17 Pitbull Rockers on ProComp 7069 Alloys, AEV Prem Bumper ETC..
Ummm ..... how can you say " All the flares have that mold line " if " I've never seen the painted flares up close "
That does not make any sence.
i see what you meant in your next sentence ....
"Clearly that line isn't smoothed out before paint at the factory."
I see you posted your observations by looking at the pictures.
Yes ... one fender the undercoating is showing = bad paint job.
If the other is not a crack then it = a bad pre prepration before paint.
Either way NEITHER is acceptable on a $36,000 vehicle.
If this type of CRAP paint job was done on a car or any other truck
you bet your life there would be no problem warrantying of the
work to be done.
