Hey everyone.


I had the cladding installed in March 2018 and noticed they are now starting to rust!


They were a real PITA for the shop to install and am now thinking I may have made a mistake putting them on.


I have contacted Amazon about a warranty however my biggest concern is taking them off and what kind of mess will I be left with?!


Anyone have the same issue or any thoughts I'd appreciate a chime in.


Stay well :thumb:

two years old yea pretty common for lower quality (sorry but shittybilt has earned a reputation) powder coated stuff to rust especially in some parts of the country where nasty de-icer is used on the roads. Probably easier to mask everything off and hit it with some black paint or paint color of your choice.

If I recall Smittybilt has something like a 5yr warranty on the finish. I’d contact Smittybilt directly & see if they can help or at least try to “make it right”.
