You wouldn't happen to have a picture to go with that description would you?

Every time it rains I get water dripped on me and/or the floor when I open the door.

Thanks in advance.

PJ Thanks for the info.

So it would seem most people experience drive train/transmission issues out of the box........Must be those sales people test driving the snot out of a potential purchase?

I voted for drive train as I have had my front drive shaft replaced and my clutch replaced but I have to agree with Pete that it is the Rear Main seal that is the most common problem.

Yeah, dealer replaced rear main for me under warranty.
Today they replaced left rear axle seal & bearing under 7/70 extended warranty, my cost $100

But, they told me I needed brake pads. Just 39,900 miles on it. Took the Jeep to a Club Member at a Firestone store. He showed me how to measure the pad depth, find the pad depth wear indicators. Lots of pad left. I used to like my dealer, now I can't trust them

In every new Jeep I have seen, the factory-installed tires are too small.

That describes it perfectly.
