Go to the 10A mods thread and read up. parker65 posted. Nothing there to mount it to. You need the plate mentioned a few posts up. It is not available either.

It just a guess, but by bumper I think he meant roll cage and by winch I think he meant a rack of brontosaurus ribs. Tip hazard.

Did I read that if the soft top is up and the sunrider is open above a certain speed the rear window should be removed ?

I just roll my rear window up, it has elastic bands on both sides to hold it. Plus airflow is better for a "little" better gas mileage. Or at least I tell myself that.

Hello my 10A friends...update of my experience with poor quality control on my 10A.

Took to the dealer today, they made a good effort to express the appropriate amount of shock and agreement that it isn't correct the way it is.

Followed by many pictures and the promise to send them to Jeep for resolution.

The issues with the quality found to date:
1. Cracked lip on the bottom of top. Also appears someone tried to touch up crack, paint is a bit off in texture and color. Anticipated fix: new hard top from Jeep

2. Each door frame, not the doors, but the frame on the body has rough paint along the narrow edge of the door opening. Maybe the clear coat but feels rough to touch like dirt in clear coat, sandpaper-like. However, also appears the paint is thin, the paint is a bit absent along the long edge of the back drivers side. Anticipated fix: dealer repainted of each door area on the body, means bottom seams will show re-painting.

3. On the hood area, on the corner tip of one of the pieces under the window on each side that wrap under over the edge on the window side of the hood...has the anvil rubbed off to the primer. Anticipated fix: dealer re-paint of that piece which will mismatch the rest of the hood area as fading will occur differently due to variations in paint process.

4. Air bubbles under my R in Rubicon on the hood on driver's side. Anticipated fix: needle to bubble before further bubble and pealing.

It has been with me one week and a day. Jeep rep asked me what I would need to make it right. Told her it wasn't the dealer but lack of quality at factory and needed to let them know since it is my fourth Wrangler and i have pride in their product. I told them I couldn't wait to hear from their "experts" since I had been waiting for my "life-long jeep" since Jan 16 when I ordered and I would have waited another three months for it to be "right". Never had an issue with my 2010 but cracked needle bearing in steering column from factory.

Suggestions of reasonable solutions? I am sick about this vehicle at this point and can hardly enjoy it since these issues took the magic from the experience, the wait wasn't bad, since this is my retirement vehicle. So I waited a "lifetime".

I believe my dealer will do what they can without taking a loss on the deal. Disappointed and looking for some useful comments that may help!

Suggestions?

All your Jeeps look awesome, and I am still excited and very happy for each of you!

I've been patiently waiting in D1 for 8 days, but with all the pictures popping up I gave in today and called IAMJEEP to see if I could get an estimated ship date. My experience was pretty comparable to others I've read about on here. First call connected me with someone who said he could see that I had been D1 for 8 days but that was all the information available and I could stay in D1 for up to 30 days. I hung up and called right back. This time the person said my 10AJKUR was scheduled to ship from the factory on 4/20, and he bets I get built tomorrow. Here's to consistent information and for the second call to be the correct one!

I think they advertised these the same way they did one before by calling the bumper winch capable and not winch ready.

TX Aggie, average time to be in D-1 has been 2 weeks, some sooner a few later. Before you know it you will be in frame, paint or trim.

Try to relax. I ordered on 3/6 and mine left D1 today. It was there for a month plus.

Has anyone that has picked up their 10a gone with the alarm system? If so, is it worth it and what did you pay?

Jeep has made plates for their own test vehicles. They just haven't created the Mopar part for ordering by dealers. It just a matter of time before people will be able to order them. It does suck that on day 1, you cannot mount a winch to the thing so I understand peoples fustrations. I'm curious as to whether an AEV plate will work. Unfortunately AEV is not a relaible source of info on this. There seems to be some sour grapes about the bumpers. I don't have much sympathy. Ther customer service has gone to hell since they left Montana. Still one benifit of the metal bumpers is that you can sell them unlike the plastic ones. I'm actually planning on selling them and getting AEV bumpers. Not a real solution to mounting I know, but one will come along maybe by next year

Hammer, sorry to hear about your quality issues. I just picked mine up tonight and noticed a few things.
1. the drivers side hood vent seems to be raised higher than that on the passenger side on the end furthest from the hood, I tried to push it down but didn't want to damage the hood. Looked to be clipped OK underneath.
2. When the hood was open I noticed there was no positive side battery terminal cover, followed the cables down thinking it fell off but nothing was there. I have never seen this before on anything that requires a battery.
Other than that everything looked pretty good. I am going to mention this to the dealer so they can look at it the next time I bring it down to them.

Other first impressions are that the Jeep is pretty cool. I drive a Suburban for my daily driver and this thing feels like I can drive over anything. Mine is lifted and with 35's the ride was a little rough but not bad, I took the tire pressure down to 29-30 from 43 an it seems to have smoothed out, will know more tomorrow. I also hope to get the tire carrier mounted tomorrow night and get some pics posted.
As always Ron Stephenitch at Ken Nelson in Dixon IL was great to work with and the guys in the service area did a great job installing the lift. The service manager told me to call him if I ever wanted to get rid of it, don't think that is going to happen!

Hammer, sorry to hear about all your problems with your 10a but thanks for sharing. I looked mine over pretty well before leaving the dealer however did not look close like the items you mentioned. When reading the forum Sunday night and read about your hardtop, I got up and went right to the garage to looked at mine. Could not find any issues. Now that I read your other problems, I will be checking it much closer this weekend. Thanks again and Good luck!

Hammer, sorry about the issues. I will be going over mine as detailed as I possibly can, but you don't really get into it until you get it home. I hope the dealer takes care of you quickly.

All your Jeeps look awesome, and I am still excited and very happy for each of you!
First let me say I'm sorry for the stress. Sucks to wait that long and find problems. I don't have a 10A, and I never ordered a vehicle just for the reasons you described. I prefer to find one on the lot so I can be picky. Of course it's too bad it has to be that way to guarantee it's near-flawless.

Regarding the cracked top: the dealer replacing it with a new one (provided it's standard black) wouldn't bother me. Of course HAVING to have it replaced sucks, but as long as they don't scratch or muck anything else up, I'd be ok with it.

Regarding the door frames: I would leave that well enough alone. It's too easy for the body shop to make things worse. I've had minor body work done on a car before and had the entire paint job ruined because of overspray - not that that would happen to you, but it's just one example of things that can go wrong with repainting/repairing. And like you said, the fact that it will be repainted and not be perfect anyway is reason enough to just live with it. It feels too much like an accident repair to have large repainted areas, which would drive me nuts. [edit] After rereading your description, is it the lip of the door frame along the bottom? Anything along the bottom inside door frame gets scratch up by entering and exiting the vehicle over and over. I've had passengers take chunks out of the paint on the door frame! So if this rough area is just along the bottom, the Mopar door sill protectors may cover the area.[/edit]

Regarding the corner tips of the pieces near the windshield: Have them remove them and just spray the corners and blend it in. You'll never know it was done and that way the entire piece won't run the risk of not matching exactly (though it probably would). If they say they have to repaint the entire piece, I doubt it will fade differently, and if it did it might be so far into the future that the whole vehicle is ready for a new paint job. Personally, if the corners that have the paint rubbed off are small and require looking carefully to notice - I'd say screw it. It's not unlikely you'll get hail damage or other worse things over the course of say 20 years.

Regarding air bubbles under the drivers side R in Rubicon, have them pop the bubbles, but just to get by until they can order a new decal and only replace the R. Problem solved and you'll never consider it again.

So if you decide to not repaint the rough spots, get some compensation from the dealer either in parts, labor, or maybe even a free extended warranty. See what they will do for you. Be warned that if you have them fix all the items - and even if they do a bad job - they won't be as likely to compensate you like they would have had you spared them the cost of the body work.

Good luck. And remember, when you get these things addressed, you still have one of (if not THE) coolest Wranglers ever produced. Plus there could have been much more serious issues like "unfindable" leaks, underside rust, or some sort of hard to diagnose problem - all of which have happened to Wrangler buyers.

Yes I did, seemed like a pretty good place based on reviews. Drove there from Aurora to make the purchase.

Starting draft a letter to CEO, Mr Marchionne and Doug Betts, Senior Vice President. Jeep has a case manager calling tomorrow evening. I'll give them a few days since three month have come and gone since I ordered.

Just not sure what might fully correct the issues. Lifetime warrant? I already paid for the 7/60 extended. The limited ability to make her "right" may be bothering more than anything. Trust being broken sort of issue more than the issues with the vehicle, upon reflection now that I have done what actions I can at this point!

Anyone get a replacement vehicle before? Seems unlikely, but this one won't be the same for me.

I don't personally know much about it but I'd look up your state's lemon laws if I were you. If it can't be fixed to new again it's permanently broken, right?

You can either have them fix the problems or argue there are too many factory flaws for this to be acceptable and ask for a buy back. But I do not expect they would buy it back in your case.

Ford gave me a new 2013 Escape, when after 2 days of ownership we discovered that the roof leaked. It was a pre-order too. I think it helped that I posted images of water stains on the a pillars on Edmunds, Escape-City, Blue and Oval Forums. We also took the car back on a Saturday and left it, telling the dealer we didn't want it back. Our check hadn't even cleared. Social media helps. This was a new car and if you google Ford Escape Leaking you'll find the posts. They want to fix these things because the pr stinks. I'd post pictures here and elsewhere. We were also nice to the dealership. I made it clear I was angry at Ford, and that it wasn't the dealers doing. Ford wanted it back anyway, to investigate the problem. I think this was new to them.

Btw. We have other issues with the new car too, but they are minor overall. It's like what they say, never buy the first model year for a new car design.

The lemon laws don't help much. They vary but essentially you have to bring the car back some certain number of times (usually three) for the same problem without any resolution. It's a PITA.

So I just ordered my wife a 10A today. (Anvil, red, auto, 430a, remote start, trailer tow, soft top only). Aware of the wait but she was excited nonetheless.

Question: what's the chance it doesn't get built due to being so late in the year? Dealership mgr said I was 100% to get what I wanted. (Albeit the end of the summer...)

I'm married to a major hottie. Shes easy to please but gotta keep her smiling. Plus the dividends more than worth it.

3. On the hood area, on the corner tip of one of the pieces under the window on each side that wrap under over the edge on the window side of the hood...has the anvil rubbed off to the primer. Anticipated fix: dealer re-paint of that piece which will mismatch the rest of the hood area as fading will occur differently due to variations in paint process.

4. Air bubbles under my R in Rubicon on the hood on driver's side. Anticipated fix: needle to bubble before further bubble and pealing.

Suggestions of reasonable solutions? I am sick about this vehicle at this point and can hardly enjoy it since these issues took the magic from the experience, the wait wasn't bad, since this is my retirement vehicle. So I waited a "lifetime".
Step back for a minute and breath. It is hard to look at issues like this objectively when you are the one in it. Nothing you are noting is that big of a deal and it can all be remedied. The top already sounds like it is in the works, so that is done. Check. If the dealer has already agreed to repaint the areas where the paint was light, then check. The airbubbles will likely still come out with a little heat and time, but otherwise a new $20 sticker and check! Then you have your brand new jeep with anything you thought of as an issue repaired as good as (or obviously better than!) new. Nothing you noted is that big of a deal from an outside perspective. I know that you have a feeling of dissapointment after the waiting the last couple of months, but once fixed, it will be all good again.
