After purchasing my 2012 GC, I noticed that the front bumper was sticking out a bit underneath the passenger side headlight. I pushed on it and it SEEMED to *click* back into place. but seconds later it popped right back out again. Took it into the dealer to see if they could attach the bumper correctly, left it overnight, and when i came back to pick it up the bumper was still popped out!
I decided to do a little investigating...I walked around the sales lot and looked at every 2011 and 2012 GC, every trim level, and both V6 and V8....even the new altitudes....
I was shocked to find that every single one of them had the same problem.. some of them the bumper was popped out on both sides...
Can anyone who sees this thread please check your bumpers and post if you have this same issue?
.....the front bumper being popped out like this really does accent the mis-aligned doors and trim nicely tho!

Yeah, I noticed it on mine a few weeks ago and like you I pushed it in, it popped in place and next day it was out again. Mine is on the passenger side. It is not to noticeable but still annoys me. Hopefully somebody can come up with a fix.
My 2011 Laredo X does not have this problem -- nor does it have misaligned doors or trim. I have also had none of the TSBs applied, as the Jeep hasn't needed them. I've had it for 16 months and 20000 miles and have had no problems at all. So, no, they don't all do that (whatever bad "that" folks are talking about at the time).
Nope, no misalignment or gap issues on front or rear bumpers. I also have no issues with the body panels. Mine appears to be well put together. The only issue I have had in 8500 miles is the "thumping" in the rear suspension covered in another thread.
