Rust on the hinges????

Hey everyone,

I've got just over 10,000 miles on my new JK 4dr and I have rust coming from almost all of the door hinges. My dealer is telling me it's a known issue and replacing them would not do any good since the rust would return. Anyone else noticing this problem? TX!

i'd tell em to replace them for free bc they knew/know about the issue and even if the rust will return, replacing them gives you that much longer on the new hinges, or find some aftermarket if you can and try to make them replace them

The dealers know, Find one that knows how to acid wash and to use the right primer and it should fix. They are aluminum and when they acid washed them at factory they
did not do it the right way. Tell them to take doors off so you don't have to rent car for 2 days.
