Are you sure it fell off? Maybe someone mistook your Jeep for an auto parts store.

That's a classic, never seen or heard of anything like that before, cant even imagine how it could just fall off, either you have extra large pot holes on your freeways or its been flogged.

Is / was the guard liner loose and popped it off?

Nahhhh... I had to remove the rear ones to fit a towbar and they are snapped on real good. Another vote for skulduggery by villains.

Cheers,
Steve

unless you SAW it come off.. im guessing it walked with the help of your friendly neighborhood car parts recycler lol

a quick scan came up with

MOLDING. Left. Fender, Wheel Flare. Front Fender. Exterior Ornamentation. JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE (2011 - 2013) # 1MP39RXFAE

$108 - i think you need the color code too... which is good.. then you dont have to pay to have it painted.

My thoughts exactly as I was a victim of "midnight auto parts" many years ago.

Did you just update your software to 14.05.3 by chance? I have had a few weird things happen since I update mine...:D

Serously would not think it would come off so cleanly while driving that it would not make some noise on the car. My vote is also for the scrappers.

Deff. Wasent stolen. I noticed it started coming off as water would get inbetween and when it would freeze it would start coming apart. I didn't think anything of it as it happened to my dodge nitro and when it melted it would just go back in. Guess not. I just noticed I have a mark on my car from when it fell off it hit the back of the car. I called my dealer and they want $168. I'm going tomorrow as it think it should be covered under warrantee.

That happened to my rig too. Last year was on the freeway, heard something on the right side and didn't think anything of it until I got home. Right front fender flare gone. Mark on the outside of the car. Had to pay out of my pocket as it is not covered under either warranties.
