Single rubber strip on hood
 
While inspecting the new Jeep I notice the hood only had one strip. We checked another one near by and it only had one as well which seemed strange but normal. The only difference I can see is a lump above the headlight. Is it reversed on the RHD versions?

Extra lump above the blinker.

I wonder if it has something to do with the air intake?

Take a look at this thread. Missing a rubber seal under the hood?

The single strip is correct...I asked about it when I took delivery a year ago.

I detailed under the hood last night and noticed this as well and it threw me off. Glad its normal!

I went as far as carrying my JGC in to the dealer and was told this is the way it was designed. The service manager said the first one he saw like this he ordered another rubber strip and when it arrived, he found out it was the same piece. He told me he then called and that was when he learned that it should be this way.

I think I'm missing something - what looks out of place?

There are holes in the hood for the other side that is thought to be missing.
The parts department books state "Only one side"

I have been looking for the missing rubber strip for a while. Glad to see this thread...
