Paint peeling off Sahara front fenders

Anyone else have this issue? First flake came off when spraying off bugs in the car wash. I have a spot off about the the size of a nickle on each fender.

Not sure if the dealer will fix it. If they do I'd rather they just replace with the plastic ones that are on the X and Rubicon. Probably cheaper than re-painting.

Ive searched around and can`t see that this is a common issue.

It is the first one that I can recall seeing in this forum. I do like my unpainted fenders. Not a bad way to go.

me too. I've never heard of this problem. you can sand them down. I think it's the same fender as the X and Rubicon, just painted.

I'd check with dealership. Chrysler warranty for paint can't be out of warranty with your rig only being an 09.

I will check with the dealer when I bring it in for the transmission temp warning recall. I have had it since Feb 09 and haven`t had any other issues, never been back to the dealer yet. I am just thinking they`ll say it was stone chip damage and not cover it. I guess I`ll see.

I wish I had the plastic too. I like those aftermarket Bushwacker ones.

That`s a good idea. Probably why the paint doesn`t stick to them that well either. I`d think others would also have this problem though.

I would bring it back to dealer. At least maybe they'll repaint it for you, and then you can continue saving for black replacements.
