My 392 came in but two of the hinges were damaged.. to get them fixed correctly they would need to repaint the entire door and blend into the center pillar etc... not real happy about it.. so anyway maybe just painting the hinges black would be good.

Anyone have pics? Ideally with painted roof and flares...

I would be okay with them repainting the side of the Jeep, if they agree to pull off all hinges and pro seal them on before painting them... Someone decided to appease the accountants and left it raw under there.

Not painted (they’re covers) but this might help give you an idea of what it would look like.

If it's just the hinges, why can't they remove and paint just the hinges? They are small enough that they shouldn't require any type of blending into the door or other panels.

Just the hinges. They said they will not match the door and you will notoce it unless they blend in the doors. I didnt believe them so went to an auto body shop and they said the same thing. Crazy if you ask me.

It's nonsense. The vehicle is new and has not had any time sitting out in the sun, etc. to have to worry about paint fade or color mismatch at this point.

I’d get a quote to do the pain like they want, then take it to a place to get just the hinges painted, and pocket the difference.

Worst case you’re out the cost to paint the hinges if they’re right and you need to repaint the whole thing afterwards.

I like that look, are these the hinge covers you invested in?

Those look similar in concept but these are the ones I specifically purchased (out of stock right now though).

Mine came with extra tape so I took the time to add extra pieces of tape, wiped the hinge with alcohol, then applied. They’ve survived Uwharrie dust, Windrock mud, and Rausch everything thus far plus two or three pressure washes by mobile detailers.

The advantage of painting everything is to have a solid coat of paint around the hinge. Just painting the hinge leaves a "crack" where salt can get in & rust away.

wait, an $80K Jeep came with f'd up hinges??? :swear:

I'd have them fix them and not just cover them with black hinges.....not really feeling the black hinges thing at all, but that's just me.....

Two of the hinges are fd up on one door. Very deep scratch on both top and bottom. Came off the truck that way. The reason to go to black was I could JUST pint the hinges black otherwise need to paint the doors or at least blend in the doors. Apparently I have leaned this is common as they can never make it match regardless of wear, elevation, moisture content are all factors thatbmake paint different apparently. So if you dont want to see a suttle change in color, then they have to repaint and was lookjng for least invasive. But now learning just removing the hinges also creates a slight integrity issue from original spray.

here is what I would do...have them just repaint the hinges, if it doesn't look right, then have them blend the whole door....I would also make sure they give you at least a Rubicon as a loaner while it is being fixed....if they don't have one, then they better rent you one.

Now way would I have them pant the hinges black or just put covers on them....I'd make sure Jeep and the dealer make things right.
