Thanks for the help with this issue. Great tip!!!
Glad it worked for you. One of my concerns with the trim lifting like they do is that one of those felt looking brushes that drags aginst it in the car wash will snag and rip the trim off so I try to make sure to keep them fixed. Car wash I go to is a good premium one and easy on the paint but one snag on a piece of lifting trim could cause a mess.

Yes I would be afraid of using anything other than hand wash for some time since its so new, but who knows come winter have to get that salt off some way or another.

Re: Fender flares unglueing on 2015 GC Summit

The left rear wheel well trim was coming loose on my '14 SRT, I called a local dealer (not the dealer I purchased from), they told me they had seen a lot of that on Grand Cherokees and Ram 1500s. Ask me to bring it right in. I drove in, and 15 minutes later it was fixed. They told me the factory uses a small trim tape to hold the trim on, they use a wider, heavier duty tape for repairs. The tech told me to bring it back if I had any more trouble. Very nice experience.

I had 3 out of 4 fenders replaced under warranty. IDK about your dealer, but Crown Dodge/Jeep in Ventura CA has been AMAZING!! Have the dealer do it...that is not acceptable for a $45-55k vehicle

If I see the fenders coming apart again I will call a local dealer and just have it taken care of, honestly haven't really enjoyed my truck since it spent some time at the dealer then had to take it back again, I just want to drive it and finally put some miles on it. Having the to take it in especially when brand new sucks big time.

I will see how the adhesive holds up and if not to the dealer we shall go. And you are right especially for a vehicle costing this much this in unacceptable.
