Yes, but I was unable to tell that the damage was there.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

I bought a vehicle from Tampa, FL and had it shipped from there to Ky through DAS. They notd every possible damage on the outside and inside of the car. They went over it with a fine tooth comb. If NONE of that damage was noted on the orginal...then it was probably done in transport.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Honestly i am not surprised. When i went to buy my WK i looked at 2 or 3 different wks and my sales man (its a well known large jeep dealership) could not tell the difference between tires and wheels let alone that some were chrome clad vs machined finish. There are some pretty dopey sales man out there and being where that damage is i could see it being missed, BUT they still need to fix it for you, somebody should have noticed it at some point.

This leads me to believe that the damage was there before the transport company picked up the vehicle.
This was for sure done by whoever loaded the Jeep on to that truck.

Probably this guy



The ramps did the damage



And this is what scratched your mirror



That's probably the reason its parked backwards too.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Sorry for the bad deal! I do agree that this looks like driver issues.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

I agree with Joel.


Hot shot truck driver put that SRT face forward originally and I guarantee he speeded up the ramp and that happened.

I've seen them load and unload these trucks like that.

When they are brand new, the factory hangs from the mirror a placard to load and unload the vehicle slowly on and off the trailor because the nose is so low to the ground.

Obviously jackass here didnt listen.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

BTW:

During every wash, you must clean the dishes of the rims! Stick your hand inside and clean them!

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

After seeing these pics I blame the driver and I would send this new found information on shipping srt8s and these pics to the dealership.
