So I was washing my truck yesterday and noticed the area on the rear door just below the chip protection pad is chipped and rusting. Ive only had my jeep for 3 months. Has anyone else had this problem?
Sorry to hear that. I read about this before here, there are a couple of threads on it. I don't recall anyone saying that the chips were rusting, but it's the main reason I installed the front splash guards as soon as I got the vehicle -- seems to be a very vulnerable area for chips with the WK2, and I've seen chipping in that area (and higher) on other models like the Liberty too.
Sorry to hear it though, and yeah, look into the MOPAR touch up paint. Odd that Jeep doesn't make it so that the film goes all the way down to the bottom edge there...
So I went to the dealer hoping they would fix it under warranty but they are not.
The guy in the body shop I talked to said its really common and he had a woman come in with 15k miles on her truck. He said the whole door looked like it was sand blasted down to bare metal.
I dont really want to get splash guards so im going to try side steps to see if they will block the rocks.
