Interesting defect from factory

Hello all. Just bought an '11 Overland 5.7. The truck is AWESOME but came with an interesting flaw. After picking up the car I headed out to dinner with the wife and she noticed the front passenger scuff plate on the door trim said "Dodge." Naturally, the dealer replaced it, but it was strange to see... the driver's side said "Jeep," thankfully. The dodge piece is physically identical, so I missed it when I went over the car the first time. Just thought I'd share!

Someone else had that same issue, maybe it was the employee's that were out smoking pot and drinking that installed it.

I'm guessing it was from a Durango?

Re: Interesting defect from factory

Dad once got a Dodge grill in a Plymouth.... cars built on same line, easy mistake to make. QC should catch but years ago you run out of a part, slap something on and fix it later...

Re: Interesting defect from factory

My guess is those kickplates are dealer installed during PDI...I bet thats when the mistake was made.

Thumbs down Re: Interesting defect from factory

There are some very helpful Jeep employees on this site, so those comments should be thought, but then not written!
