Had my grill painted by the dealer a couple of months ago. I noticed today that it is starting to yellow again around the drivers headlight.
@Beepbeep

Is it the grill trim molding on the driver's side? Undoubtedly, the dealer had the grill painted and not the molding. You did not notice it was yellow earlier or it just recently began yellowing. SO, is it the drver's side trim molding?

Ok, so I've noticed this issue with my Bright White as well. I also have some moisture in the passenger side LED turn signal, so I need to take mine in to have that fixed anyway. If they are just replacing the grill and keeping the old one for FCA, I wonder if they'll let me replace it with the Mopar flat black? The cost has to be relatively the same I would think. Also, the dealer I purchased from is way further away then the one down the street from me.... Is this a well enough known issue that the closer dealership won't give me $h!t?

Hello group!
I have a bright white rubicon and I noticed my grille is turning yellow. The yellow may be due to heat or sun exposure but either way it shouldn’t happen especially within the three months I have had the new JL. Can anyone provide info or possible solutions? Thanks
I just realize today that i have the same problem, nit good

Damn I didn't know the fender area was getting it too. WTF? Now I'll have to keep an eye on that.

I just dropped my Jeep off at dealership who is working with Jeep Cares on this item... They will have it for about a week as they are sending it over to paint shop to pull and redo grill and fenders that are yellowing... Jeep Cares called me right after dropping it off to ensure all items are noted and will be working with the dealership directly with this issue... I will say the Jeep Cares team has been very good in helping to get this thing moving... I will provide details once I get it back...


Picked up Jeep from dealer and it is a huge difference after body shop repainted. Grill and fenders look brand new. I will get pictures tomorrow and post them here.

18 JLUS delivered May 2018 here. Even in our intense sun in deep south TX, I really haven't noticed any yellowing of my grill or any other plastic body parts yet. They must have used inferior paint on some JL's?

I'm pretty sure my Jeep has this and it's been garaged every day of its 4k mile/1yr long life at work and home so I can't blame the TX sun for it. I noticed it on my grill when washing a few weeks ago. It wasn't incredibly drastic, but there is a different hue to it.

1,200 miles and mine is doing it now. 5 weeks old and garage kept. I've customized my 7 grill inserts black and the "honeycomb" red. I sure hope they don't blame me. Would any dealer repaint or otherwise paint keep it from yellowing if it's heat from the motor related? 2019 JLUR. Anyone have luck with a permanent fix.

I guess I need to read all the messages.

With white 2019's hitting the streets, can any new owners confirm or deny whether their 2019's are experiencing the grill yellowing?
Confirmed mine was built in February 2019
