Chipping and bubbling? That's a little ridiculous they refused to cover it; what was their reason for that decision?

Is the paint chipped from rocks that the front tires kick back? If so, that's not covered under warranty.

This may not be right but after I wash mine I have an electric leaf blower just for use on blowing the water off the truck and noticed a ton of water comes out from behind the hinges. So is it all the water being caught thats the problem here.

Unless it is chipped from dings or something it has to be covered by warranty. If it is bubbling then it is a manufacturing flaw. Mine were done twice under warranty. Find another dealer if there is one around. If not contact Chrysler.

Truthfully i'm not a 100% how the chipping was caused. I do offroad quite a bit and use the door hinges as a foot peg when doors are off too.. I'm a huge fan of rustoleum products so i'll probally just spray them down with bedliner. Thanks for the response.
Good idea to contact Chrylser directly, that never occured to me

X2 with the bedliner paint. Also went one step extra and made custom rubber gaskets between the door and the hinges, to stop any oxidation.
