Dash Leather Issues

Had the strut/shocks changed due to rattles and squeaks (2x)...and the bumper not fitting (3x) and fender flares....now a new dash. Worst vehicle I ever bought.

I will post pics, but my dash started to show weird "trails" or marks if you will under the dash leather on the passenger side dash.

Dealer didn't have alot to say, ordered a new one and Jeep will be in the shop again on Monday. They also ordered another front left strut it is still making the high pitched chirp over speed bumps, and the bumper still has huge gaps they plan to look at again.

Keep an eye out fellas

-Chris

Re: Dash Leather Issues

weve seen some overlands here with similar dashes. It seems to be an irregular dye or glue used to attach the leather. Would love to see some pics

Re: Dash Leather Issues

Sorry to hear. I have had some problems myself. Jeep just put out a tsb fix for the front bumper about two weeks ago. Had mine fixed so far so good. I also have heard they are doing a 3rd and new tsb for the suspension in mid to late november. Good luck.

Re: Dash Leather Issues

I've had my dash replaced twice. Originally delivered with a stain that could not be removed. The replacement they ordered and installed was also damaged. From then on I asked to inspect the dash that was delivered before installation. Took them another 2 more dash delivered for me to approve install. I recommend this.
