Dealers are sometimes limited to what they can repair under warranty especially when its at the manufacturing level. express to them your displeasure of finding sections of unprotected panel under the hood. The dealer cannot simply authorize a paint repair and expect to get paid by the parent company. Im just saying the dealer will likely see you as a difficult customer because they will probably think its a nonconcern or worse they might just carelessly dab touchup and itll look like crap.|

So while I don't plan on making this into a big deal, I do want the dealer to do this as a documented warranty repair.

I would just touch it up and forget about it. I understand you spent alot of money but starting crap with dealer over two little spots is gonna make you known at that dealer like that picky guy...someday in an emergency they wont help you out cause they will be afraid to get your car out quickly in fear they left a spot somewhere and you gonna piss off the techs who work on it.
Do what you want, if you fourwheel once youll end up with scratches and dings that will make those two spots seem trifling.

If so I believe if you have the factory alarm, this is the plunger switch located at the the drivers side front making that mark, the other spot I do not have a clue, sorry!

I'll be making an appointment in the next couple weeks for a few minor warranty issues, so we'll see how it goes...

I have 'em too.
I thought it was from rubbing on underhood bumpers, but now I'll double check.
Luckily I bought mine after the salt season. It would be an easy touch up, but I agree on principle Jeep shoud fix it given the chunk of change Chrysler Financial is into me for.

|Badfish||yea same marks on my 08 x. it looks more like wear marks than being covered and painted over. i think its got to be wear marks from when they are installing the hoods at the factory. its for sure not rubbing on anything under the hood. it just looks like the marks are made from that. wierd|

|jk'n||That was my first thought. That would mean everybody's hood would have those same marks.|

|whiteyj||It's probably something silly like those are the spots where the hoods are supported during the painting process at the factory.|

|sgnellett||I'd insist they fix that, no reason to put up with that on a new vehicle. It won't cause problems tomorrow, but eventually it will. Rusty hoods look like crap!|

|whitebomber||Here's a couple pics of the spots...|

Paint rubbed through under hood. Anyone else?
Does anyone else have this? There are two spots under the hood where it's down to bare metal. Small spots about a quarter inch round. Located about 6 inches from the front and side of the hood on both sides.
I went back to the dealer and checked three other JK's on the lot, and they all have the same bare spots. It's something that must have happened at the factory, because there is nothing under the hood that would hit right there.
