Something fishy with my jeep.

I just noticed that the passanger side of my jeep is missing the chrome molding that says "grqnd cherokee" on the driver side. Its like it was never there. I find this very odd, to say the least. Furthermore, I noticed that the chrome molding just below the windows does not lign up as well as the driver side. Do doors have serial numbers anywhere?

Re: Something fishy with my jeep.

Do you think someone tried stealing the window molding and just took the door one?

Re: Something fishy with my jeep.

I was thinking more along the lines of dealer foul play. I noticed the chrome not lining up well straight from the dealer, because I could see that in the side mirror (I thought to myself, well it's american...) I also saw a crashed silver laredo in the back lot when I went to pick up my car. If the molding had been stolen there should be some sort of marking or residue. Its not like some thief is going to goo gone it afterwards.

And who the hell would want to steal standard molding anyway.

Re: Something fishy with my jeep.

Are you talking about a 2011 model? There was a crashed one at the dealer already?

Re: Something fishy with my jeep.

Idk about the WK2's but some WKs have the misaligned window molding. As for the body molding, what did the dealer tell you?

That's ridiculous...email him some pictures of what bothers you about the window trims, and show him the missing moulding! Do the trip when he gets the parts in to install on your Jeep.

Re: Something fishy with my jeep.

I work for an automotive accessory distributor. It is sad to say but i have numerous dealerships that order accessories so that they can take lower model vehicles and "upgrade" them to the premium models. It is sad that dealerships could be this deceptive. I have no experience with any Jeep dealerships, but it does happen.

Re: Something fishy with my jeep.

My overland doesn't have a chrome grand Cherokee on the passenger side either. I suspect it isn't supposed to since there is a piece of black trim there.
