Seems like there some dealers that are serious about customer service!
That's great news.
I must be one of the few, I would have been HOT. That's something that would bring out the angry Irish woman wielding a sheleighly real quick.

I don't like people taking liberties with any of my stuff, least of all my husband and my vehicle.

When I bought my jeep they stuck a logo on the back. They did it when finishing cleaning. Upon last inspection I told them to pull it right back into the garage and take that sh*t off. My exact words. Hahaha.

They do that crap here too. Front and back plate brackets with dealer name and email AND they glue on the name of the dealer on back. Pulled all that bs off. I'm paying them $ for the Jeep then doing free marketing and advertising, hell no. We should be able to charge them a marketing and advertising fee because it's like being a driving billboard with thousands of cars able to see it.
Sorry my rant. Have to tell the punks here not to put it on again when you take it in or it will come back all badged up again

Respectfully disagree. My plastic bumper, although cut into a stubby, has withstood 3 years of abuse. Aside from a few scratches and some discoloration from the clay/mud here. It's in perfect shape.

My tj didn't have anything bc I didn't buy if from the dealer. But our commander came with lp covers and a tag on the back. And I was told to not take it off because we just waxed it

My state does not require a front plate and I don't normally put any kind of plate on the front of my vehicles. After removing the plate the dealer installed, there are two holes in my bumper. Maybe it's not a big deal, but I don't appreciate them drilling permanent holes in my bumper without my permission.

Did this happen to anyone else and is there anything I can do to cover up the holes?
