  1. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Welcome to the club, but sorry you joined :/
  2. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Redneck—when I was on the phone with Chrysler during repaint #3 last year (sadly, it won't be the last) they extended a "special" promise to me that for as long as I owned the car as the original owner, they would "take care of me". Now... I think we all pretty much know that doesn't mean a...
  3. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Exactly... it's a different story for me these days when someone at the gas station says "Oh, I love your Jeep—how do you like it?"... I want to sing it's praises, but after the paint nightmares I've had I feel just plain evil if I give them the whole "Oh, I love it so much" song and dance.
  4. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Not too likely. I probably would have if I felt that they were working on a solution. I refuse to accept “it’s a Jeep thing” for this.
  5. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Heard. My 2018 has already been in for repaints 3 times. I went through Jeep Cares, then corporate, but as far as I can tell, they're still calling my case an "isolated incident". A "one-of-a-kind" issue. Yeah. Now I'm just watching the calendar & waiting for my turn-in date (I leased). I wanted...
  6. Corrosion on JL Door

    Dude... its awful. Many of us are on this thread: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/bubbles-in-paint-at-door-hinges.32756/page-52#post-1399831
  7. Corrosion on JL Door

    Hey gang. See the thread called “bubbles under paint” (or similar). Lots of info & photos in that thread about this same issue. Best of luck!
  8. Getting rid of that moth ball smell

    Lay a fresh filet of trout over the area. Simply remove the filet in 3 weeks, and boom! No more moth ball smell. Trust me, it works. /s
  9. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I've dealt with this corrosion issue 3 separate times already on my vehicle—it still isn't right, but I do suggest you go through JeepCares so it can be properly "documented". My particular case was eventually escalated to Chrysler Corp and I am now working with them for future issues. I don't...
  10. Soft top vs hard top

    I can't speak about noise levels in a hard top, but I was surprised when I got mine (premium sof top, for reference) because I thought it would be louder. My previous vehicle was a MINI Countryman with a roof rack I kept on permanently, and the Jeep is definitely no louder than that was. That...
  11. BFG Ko2's suck that bad in rain?

    I've got 33" BFGs... and I think their road manners are pretty good. I can unglue them in the rain if I do something stupid, (like gun it in a turn over a freshly painted crosswalk—oops), but generally speaking—they behave as expected. I tend to keep them at about 35-37psi for normal driving (no...
  12. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Heard. Unfortunately, I have come to understand this the hard way. But—my dealer "does it the way they do it", so when I had repeat corrosion on hinges that had been painted less than 2 months before, I reached out to JeepCares. It moved from the paint shop to service for the steering TSB last...
  13. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Keep us posted on that situation. I have JeepCares involved right now, but the only thing that seems to have changed so far is the number of people "in the loop". I'm hoping JeepCares will ultimately pass along a more permanent solution... a long-term "plan" of sorts. I'd do almost anything...
  14. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    My dealer in West Palm Beach, FL (Arrigo) hasn't been too keen on replacing anything. I brought it up once, and they said "we'll start with repainting". Of course, as luck would have it, hinges that were painted in July have begun corroding again, along with a few new ones so my JL is currently...
  15. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    That was one of the things the Jeep Cares rep brought up. It was a very general initial conversation. Nothing official, and no specific details, but I wanted to know what the plan from FCA would be moving forward (it sure seems like this is going to keep on going with mine). I made it clear that...
  16. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I’ve been in a few times now for repainting (hinges; door panel). One of the hinges that was “fixed” during a a repaint in late June started bubbling up again all around the hinge, so I reached out to Jeep Cares. Spoke with them today, just prior to fix appointment #3 in as many months. They’re...
  17. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    So it seems, at least in this rust belt climate, the bubbling is likely to be inevitable. Which is ok when under warranty in terms of cost (having to have repainting done of any sort on the exterior doesn’t thrill me) but if it is also inevitable that it will return the cost of repair won’t be...
  18. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Dropped the JLU this morning for 4 more hinge repaints due to the paint bubbling corrosion issue. Add that to the 2 hinges and passenger door panel that were repainted last month. Got a Ford Fusion as a loaner. Reached out to JeepCares after they offered assistance—haven't heard from them yet...
  19. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Scoured my Jeep after finding a few spots and took it in for repainting (driver hood hinge and passenger door leading edge) last Monday. Got it back Wednesday. Washed it Sunday… and noticed the upper hinge on the repainted door is fully involved (corrosion). It looked fine the day before I took...
