Makes you wonder about all the corrosion that might going on in areas that we can't see, like inside the doors and fenders.
I don't think steel* body parts are much affected, this is mostly alum hood/doors/hinges. But yeah we can never be too sure with what we can't see.Makes you wonder about all the corrosion that might going on in areas that we can't see, like inside the doors and fenders.
Between the hood, doors, and tailgate, thats pretty much about 5/6th of the entire outer body. Also, Aluminum is a metal, it isn't Ferrous Metal, like the Steel Tub is.I don't think metal body parts are much affected, this is mostly alum hood/doors/hinges.

So far, not really. I had my Passenger side hinge area repaired last year, but the issue returned within a year, and it has also now started on the Drivers side. My Jeep will be going back to the dealer in a couple weeks.Have them on a couple of mine. Great. Is everyone having successful repairs or not so much.
The grass is always greener... the Broncos will for sure have their fair share of issues. That’s an entirely new platform. Ford has very many documented issues of the same aluminum corrosion paint bubbling issues on their vehicles, especially the explorer, mustang, and f150. Lots of forum threads over there, just like this thread here.The Bronco can’t come soon enough. Jeep needs some serious competition. Aside from some buggy electronics, my wrangler has been great during the first 10 months, 7,000 mile of ownership. Unfortunately I am not optimistic about the future...just too many problem areas. Out of three used wranglers I saw on the dealers lot recently, two had hinge corrosion. I am afraid we will all deal with this eventually...and resale will suffer. I waited until the third model year of the JL before my purchase in hopes the bugs would be worked out....I lost that bet...
