Fix it now or fix it later. Later will only cost you more $$$$ than it would now.

Took the truck into Dealership, they took pic's to send to Chrysler, So I guess its a waiting game to get an answer to if they will cover it or not, I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best here, If not I will try the suggestions listed by you guys to at least help eliminate future rusting and then have flares painted and installed... thanks again everyone

If Chrysler doesnt take care of ya make sure if you repair it yourself that you use "One Step" on the area, its made by MAR-HYDE and its in a spray can. You remove the flakey rust and the One Step converts any surface rust into a black primer thus stopping the spread in its tracks. Then follow with an etch primer. I've done Chrysler rust warranty repairs in the past and this is how I usually take care of the problem and then following with filler for the pitting on so on. That should hold up with using the flare to cover up the spot. Hope this helps.

Yeah, this Rust Bullet makes some pretty fantastic claims.

Sounds too good to be true.

Default Don't cover it up!

I just went through the exact same issue on my 02. I found a guy on craigslist that ground em down and even added some new metal. Looks brand new now. Cost around $400 to do both rear fenders. If you cover it up it will continue to spread.

Good luck!

Was reading up on the body paint bubbling issues on the rear wells other members were having and decided to check in. I have the same issue as the first post with the red pics.


Would a Mopar MasterShield Lifetime Warranty on Undercoating cover this repair? I take great pride and care of my toys and would hate to see this eat away at the paint. Thanks
