New 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara VIN 1C4BJWEG5CL127411 For Sale in Woodbridge VA | VIN 1C4BJWEG5CL127411

Looks like we have another one from what I can tell in these pictures. Driver's front. FAIL. The dealership probably doesn't even know about it.

Let's see how long it lasts online, I just submitted a comment with the following...

"You guys at the dealership notice anything off about that driver's side front wheel flare? Nobody noticed it doesn't match the other 3 painted flares? Sahara's don't even have an option for unpainted flares! Attention to details fellas!"

...Just to keep someone on their toes

Well Damn... I 'm starting to like the mismatches. Kinda like Huskies that have two different colored eyes.. I might have to go paint and clear one of my flares now.

Some car makers do not have unions...they turn out lemons too. Read up on union history and you will hopefully determine why they even exist. Your forefathers helped that to happen and for good reason. It is now part of our culture. I don't think they are going away anytime soon. But I guess it is fun for some people to blame them for ridiculous things. I'm not a union defender but I do say they have their place in spite of what some may think.
This is not a dig against you but more of a statement in general about unions. At my job, we have unions. A year ago, we had some new cubicles built an some network drops run. We had new hires that could not work until the unions coordinated for someone ti come and put the connector on the end of the network cable that was there. In jeep's case, I would not be surprised if there was a "left side" worker and a "right side" worker and neither was permitted to work on the other side so why would they bother checking if the fenders matched? I would be interested to know where the workers are getting the part numbers from - like maybe their is a glitch in the software programming or if they are simply grabbing the wrong part.

I believe it is this sort of thing they/we are bashing and not the unions themselves if that makes sense. Every company has it's own bureaucracy to work through and being an automotive industry, everyone knows a union is involved so it's easy to bash the union.

I only mention since it felt like you too the bashing personally.

Sincerely.
