Re: Door Adjustment

I spoke to my SA and he said exactly what JDSmitty said. The rear edge of each panel protrudes just slightly to prevent wind noise. My drivers door aligns perfectly vertically it just protrudes slightly more than the others. I looked closely and he does seem to be correct so I will just leave it alone I think. No noise and no leaks!

Ya I heard that somewhere. Don't know if it was here or not. My vertical alignment of gaps are even(except for my hatch which was fixed). Just the slight rear edge protruding which is supposed to be that way I think

Re: Door Adjustment

Some things never change.... and the Grand Cherokee assembly line and employees is one of them.

I was damn lucky to get an arrow straight 2010 Grand Cherokee SRT8...

I ordered mine so I don't know if they took extra care in assembly and final inspection, or not. Maybe it was pure luck....

What I do know, 50% come off the line with misaligned panels. I was hoping for more from the WK2 generation.
