I've got a three week old Altitude Sahara with color keyed front bumper. It's actually named appliqué on the build sheet. Well it just peeled off In a big sheet like a piece of paper. Anyone else have this happen? Service is the next stop. Looks like four bolts hold on a plastic skin so should be easy to replace but dang! Not even a month?

Your fenders will probably be next. My right front started to peel/flake/whatever after a couple of months. It started in the joint where the fender meets the body. It was naturally covered under warranty and the paint job that the dealer put on it looks better than the rest of the fenders. I'm kind of hoping the rest of them go before 36K too so that they can get a real paint job on Chrysler's dime.

Well they took pics and is sending the pics in. They "never saw anything like that before". I know it's hard to believe, but they pinky swore... They'll call me back with the answer.

Appliqué is a fancy word for sticker.

Haha. Yea. Like they need to use two dollar words for the good folks that drive a jeep... I'd say that owners driving wranglers are a bit more direct and plain in their words - IMHO. And still no call back... Seems pretty simple to me - their sticker peeled off, grab another one and reapply. Sigh...
