I have an August 2019 build 2020 Saraha with the Sky One Touch top, and have noticed what looks like black RTV sealant at all 4 corners of the trim/ weather stripping along the canvas top. Is this typical from the factory, or a post-build "QC fix" for a problem area? Or is this something I should have the dealer address? I was kind of surprised to see this on a factory fresh vehicle.

Also, at the corners of all 4 doors, it looks like cut foam has been inserted, presumably to combat wind noise issues.

This is all as delivered on a factory order (i.e. it has not been to the dealer for any "fixes). I'm presuming the factory is applying some of these "fixes" to preemptively address future complaints. There are no leaks and no excessive wind noise. Anyone else have this from the factory? Looks amateurish.

I am going out on a limb, but I would say that isn't normal. You are exactly right! It looks rushed and I am surprised no leaks or noise!

Have you had it though a car wash?

Love that color though...

I bet you Jeepcares will get with you on that...

Looks exactly like the stuff we get off the rear window seals too. On a hot day .... leave your JEEP outside and either wipe off or redistribute....seems to be a JEEP thing.

+1. It is a bit of excess butyl sealant. It retains a sticky putty-like consistency for life. Just use an old credit card to neaten it up.

yes it's sealant...
No. that doesnt look like anything Ive seen on a properly built unit.

That looks like an "oh shit, lets fix this and get it out the door" done at the dealer... Ive not seen anything that poorly done.

I would run that back and look at a few other units on the lot and then tell them to pull everything and build it right.
