2012 Epic Fail

Guess this one was built after a two toke and quart lunch.
How they heck does this kind of mistake get past Quality control?

Ebay link.. Jeep : Wrangler | eBay

Wow... the more I look at it the more I see is wrong... Its like a find the differences game...

Are those even sahara wheels? Not to mention the top, flairs, and is it just me or does that front bumper stick out too far?

I think the color coded top is a separate option from the colored fenders, but I could be wrong....Any sahara guys?

They are the optional 70th anniversary Sahara wheels, but that doesn't do much for the car in it's current state.

Ok, the top is one thing, but having a one fender black? I wonder if the drivers rear flare is black too, hehe. Maybe a study in asymmetry.

Yeah, for as much as these costs that's bad QC. Way to go Fiat.

Or maybe it's a special "Dalmatian" edition.

You can get a Sahara with an all black top....
Those are the optional wheels..(which are ugly IMO)....

But those fenders.....ummm......

looks like the only real thing wrong is the one mis-matched fender flare... the colored top is an extra $$ option, and i've never seen those wheels (someone said it could be the anivers. edition)

Yup, these are the 70th anniversary wheels that came on my wrangler (which I sold back to the dealership before I took delivery).

They are now available on the 2012 sahara as an "upgrade" option LOL

Now the real question....what color is the rear driver side fender? If it is black.....someone was going for the checkerboard look.....

The black top is standard. (As it should be)

I tried to "ask the seller a queston" on ebay but they want your life story and contact info to do so. I don't want to be on their mailing list so I didn't ask. I may call this afternoon.

there is nothing attractive about that jeep, except the wheels maybe. Jeep should not be white. Actulally the smaller Jeep on white I think looks fine. But the JKU doesn't look all that great...

I thought somebody on ebay might be getting creative with photoshop, but I looked up the dealer site and there are several pictures showing the screw up, this one being my favorite.

x2...Tried the same, I'm truly interested to know how he's taking a picture like that one showing the front with both fenders in view and not noticing anything....

with that other black sahara that showed up on Jalopnik, at least it was a black Jeep, so it was either black plastic or black painted, but the white is about as big of a contrast as you can make to that plastic fender!

X2 on the wheels

Something is shady.

Why would the jeep be sold like that?
I mean how hard is it to match up the fenders. Or go aftermarket for that matter?
Does the defect show in the price?

Weird

Probably the same guy (union worker) that mixed match a pair of fenders a few weeks ago.

The dealership doesn't think this is odd??

I just tried to call the 866 number listed in the auction and the automated operator just runs you in a circle. She says dial 6 for sales and that sends you to sales, but after a few seconds it automatically sends you back to the operator. I may try the other number later.

The ad should read "come on down all you color blind Jeep lovers as we have a deal for you.
This new 2012 wrangler comes in your color choice, just choose your mind color and bam you got a Jeep that mimics a chameleon."

Go thru any mud hole and all your fenders will match.
