    Door hinge dirt spay

    Hear, hear, new to the JL but far from new to the jk. Just took time to mod the power wagon a bit till I missed jeepin. Nice ride in comparison; but my question is has anyone had issues with spray from the bfg’s severe enough to pepper the door hinges and ridges of the door? If so, did the dealer repaint? What was done to teamed the problem? I know folded rock rails will likely fix it. I shouldn’t have to put $2k in the rock rail of my choice IMO

    A member on JLWrangler.com put some clear 3m tape on his. I know there's another thread about it as well but I can't find it.

    I guess my question is more so should I attempt to have the dealership repair damage to a bone stock rubicon that is one week old. My opinion is the cause is a design flaw be it tires used or lack of a dirt flap (I,d of probably yanked off day one if it had). Taping or adding a step would prevent further damage but a brand new Jeep shouldn’t be damaged by normal use. Looks like it’s a trip to the dealer to find out

    Lol. I’ve had three JKUR’s and every one had chips on the hinges. If you don’t like the “design flaw”, don’t buy a Jeep that has removable doors.

    FYI- the windshields get chipped often so be prepared.

    You need to make better choices on the malls you run in.

    These things are kinda gay but will correct the "design flaw" that's been a part of Jeeps for approximately 78 years

    You should sell it and buy a car. Would fit you better.

    Why would you want to spay your hinges?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
