Overland Leather dash issue

So I reported to you guys that the front edge of my Leather dash was seperating a week ago. It has continued to seperate, and I took it to the dealer today. I just heard back that they are going to replace the dash .

I hope they can replace just the top..... I can't imagine my interior being pulled apart with only 1,000 miles on the rig Either way, the replacement dash has to be ordered, so we'll see how long this takes. They were extremely quick to come to this decision, almost as if Jeep knows of the issue with the Leather Overland dash.

Re: Overland Leather dash issue

Glad they are taking care of it. I hope they get this taken care of as this is a concern with the Texas heat. The dash looks amazing but it needs to last.

I was wondering if this might be the reason they were so painstakingly slow to ship the Overlands that have just been produced- maybe sending all the Overlands for repair of this issue?

I figured it might have been more of that issue with whatever that "hose" issue was in which it was part of many of the vehicles chryslers built. According to that dealer bulletin at least.

Could have been that too, but it sure seemed like they were moving Laredos and Limiteds faster than Overlands.
