I have the Sky-one touch and love this option, and haven't had any problems with it.
Yes, we have the sky one touch in our black JLUW. We haven't had it long enough to really experience it but so far, so good. Only downside that I didn't know before getting this Jeep was with that roof, you're unable to fold the windshield down. You can't take it off either and replace with a soft top for instance.

Actually I didn't know that either!

I should clarify. Technically, you can do everything I just said you couldn't. However, if you do, the seals (especially by the windshield) will get damaged and the roof will no longer be watertight. Don't get me wrong, it's a great roof. My wife and kids love it. But there are days when I'd want to remove the entire thing or lower the windshield and can't. My next Wrangler will be acquired with a regular hard/soft top combo I think.

My 2020 White Sahara also has yellowing on the white fenders. What should be the next steps I take? Call Jeep cares or go to dealer first to show them?

is the driver side fender? if it is look at the headlight on that side, you might also have it there. I called jeep cares first. They said they had no other reports of this, I am taking mine into the dealership after the Holidays. When you call jeep cares they document the issue

Looking for jeep
Is this a problem on all white jeeps?

This thread kinda died.

Yes. There is another huge thread about it somewhere. Happened to my 2020 last summer after 200 miles only. It’s fixed and has been fine. I have 13000 miles on now alimony a year later.

My 2018 had yellowing on left front fender flare. Repainted under warranty (over two years ago I think) and no issues since. Some yellowing on the grill but it’s along the edge under the hood. I forgot about it until now.

By the way, not just white JLs. Others colors have it too, just much more noticeable on white. I recall reading that some Sting Gray owners reported same issue.

I just bought first jeep. Bought a 2021 a month ago (still in 2020). Just made my first payment and my paint is turning yellow already! Also my door locks don’t lock all the way and I had to turn off the auto lock feature which isn’t ideal from a safety standpoint. Def not a very good first impression.

So sad to learn that Jeep has known about this paint/heat issue since 2018 and it is still not resolved. It reflects so poorly on the company to not have the problem resolved 3 years after learning about it. Steer clear of white for sure and possibly consider an entirely different purchase all together!

I have almost the exact condition on my 6 week old Rubicon. Just talked to the dealership. They are putting me in touch with the factory rep Monday.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
Why is my brand new (6 weeks since delivery), $73,000 white Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a $1280 Zurich coating on it turning yellow? The discoloration is occurring primarily at the inside top of the driver's side fender and at the top driver's side corner of the front grill. The plastic panels at the bottom of the A-Pillars may be affected as well.

My Jeep is garage kept and rarely is parked outside.

Just got a reply from the general manager at my dealership. They're putting me in touch with the factory rep on Monday 6/7/2021.
