I clearly got one of the ones that slipped through inspection or one of the last ones of the day and the workers were ready to get out of there and possibly started drinking beers before clocking out for the day.
Since it's almost all down near the bottom of the truck, I didn't see it at the dealer in my brief walk around before taking it on the test drive and then going in to do the paperwork.
But within 5 minutes of getting the truck home and wiping it down, I started to see the paint issues immediately. So it's basically inexcusable for someone who is PAID to quality control and check things like this, let it go by and out to a customer.
Yeah it sucks to see that stuff in your paint and chrome and Chrysler should do a better job in painting these things. But to me these are trucks. One load in the back or a short trip off road and you'll get scratches and what not. Don't ask how I know this.
