If I found out my dealer was using my vin to order parts for other clients I would be on the phone with Chrysler corporate immediately.

You do understand why things are limited and what buyers of limited items are expecting....it to actually be limited. If you want the hood buy the Jeep.

Lol. Yes you are set. Maybe you'd be kind enough to take a few orders for new ones since if it is VIN limited you'd have a green light? Lol. JK

Oh I feel the same way about it, trouble is the dealer doesn't care and knows you won't even know. I have marveled at some of the crap pulled by the dealer I worked for, that's why I left.

There will be similar replicas no doubt about it. All that needs to be done is to change it up slightly to avoid copyright infringement. The aftermarket producers are likely already on it. Hell, china doesn't even care about patents.

Here's another hood option that looks cool:

Made in USA for $1000 kinda cool because it's different than the large number AEV hoods out there

Yeah. They are stealth too. They don't stand out like AEV hoods (which are cool) at first sight. The guy at the shop I go to has one one his and the supercharger to boot. There's a picture of his Jeep in the last JP magazine for an ad for the turbo manufacturer.

Thats a really nice looking hood. The site says it will work with the 2013 JK but I wonder where they route the two windshield washers?

I still don't see how the dealer ordering parts with your vin negatively affects you. It's not like it would show up on a carfax report or any potential buyers will ask you for a parts order history. Even with all that, unless the dealer tells you, there isn't a way for you to know that they are doing this. Had I waited an extra year I'd be getting a 10A and wouldn't care if my dealer was kind enough to spread the 10A hood love to others wanting it. I mean it is a sexy hood, why would you want to try to limit sexyness? lol that's like saying you would enjoy watching the world burn down.

Actually, AEV made the hood long before COD edition came out. I bought mine before the COD was even known about.

Dont worry. Soon you will be able to order the 10A hood or any other 10A part. If its only available to 10A Jeeps, the dealer just needs to get a VIN from any 10A Rubi, sold or not. If its sold, the owner will never know that a part was ordered with his VIN number. Its only paperwork for the dealer.
This kind of stuff happens all the time with all the manufacturers.
I might even buy one for my white JKUR. All I need to do is locate a VIN. The internet will definately help me with that when its time if the dealer cant.

Now if they would just make one that vents the warm air from the engine onto the windshield wipers so the snow stops freezing them up and I don't have to pull over and flip the ice off of my "snow blades" I would be in like Flynn.

Or just snap a pic of the VIN on the next 10A you see at the supermarket.

I agree, the hood is awesome! I actually own one. And no I don't own a 10A. I'd love to tell ya how I got it but I just can't. I'm not big on stickers,etc. So, it's all black. But it looks awesome.

The '12's have only one windshield spray nozzle and the 13's have two.

So I assume we'd need to buy the new washer hose as well.

Any problems there?

There's a write up about this from a guy named something like green machine on this forum or another jk one. If you search he listed all the parts needed

I went to the parts store near me and just modified what he did to what I wanted to do with the kits and parts available. It's super cheap.

Shouldn't take anything more than a plastic tee and a length of washer hose.

All you need is the hose, the "t", and 2 squirters. The ones in the '12 won't work. There different than the '13. So you need to buy 2.

Just search cars.com or autotrader.com, dealers have VINs listed. There are a few 10th Anniv. Rubicons listed with photos and VINs. I don't know if Jeep offers pre-painted parts, if so, get a VIN for the color hood you prefer.

The parts dept. wants VINs to ensure they order the correct part for your vehicle so they do not end up with special order parts sitting in their inventory. For special orders, many parts departments want to be paid for up front.

All manufacturers are required to produce a supply of replacement parts for warranty claims, repairs, etc. Someone using your VIN will not prevent you from getting replacement parts in the future.
