It's a totally know problem BUT smaller dealers may not have seen it yet...there are 250+, yes 250+, non-SRT JGC hoods on backorder!

They have made many revisions and supposedly the assembly/gap issue that is causing the aluminum corrosion has been addressed with the latest versions.

*I have no idea if these part numbers, in fact, are for the truly new and revised hoods or 1 revision behind but these are the most recent versions according to my dealer with whom I have been speaking about my corroded hood.

non-SRT:

Hood and Related Parts - PANEL, Hood
Part# 55369587AG (prior versions end with AB, AC, AD, AE, AF)

SRT:

Hood and Related Parts - PANEL, Hood
Part# 68040264AF (prior versions end with AB, AC, AD, AE)

Is your dealer giving you the "it's not covered under the corrosion warranty because it's not a "hole" as the corrosion warranty only covers holes/perforations"? If so, they should be approaching this under the 3/36 bumper to bumper...it's still BS to not be "corrosion" tho as since both sides are painted and it's bubbling it is obviously corrosion from within which is the intent of a corrosion warranty vs exterior induced from salt, paint breakage, etc...actually, the thing we should all be on guard for is having a hood like the white one above, not going into dealer to document non-broken paint, and waiting until a rock hits the bubble, breaks the paint and now the dealer/FCA could fight you on broken paint corrosion....everybody get yours in BEFORE paint breakage....

Re: Rust under paint anyone??

Went to the dealer again yesterday, new service writer there and he did the pictures and sent it in. Got a phone call from him today, it's covered but on back order. Im happy now
