What do you mean when you said: After I took 40+ complaints, etc.?
Did you print it and send it? or you meant: After I LOOK?
How did you bring it to the dealer?

I am inclined to order the kit fron DenLor also. You"re right. For $200.00 there is not much you lose. If Chrysler does something, and when, we're better of with this kit. BUT, was it difficult to do it? Please let me know how you did it.

My husband did it and he said it was not that difficult. It took him about 30-40 minutes per door. The only thing he did have to do was shave the piece a bit to fit easier. The first door took a bit longer just to figure it out, but once he did the first door, the rest went very easy. All the doors are still working great. The inside handle does it a tiny bit off, but they work. It was definately worth the money.

Printed them out and showed them to John Farr at Glendora Dodge. He was on the phone with Jeep and, finally they came through.

My mom's 2006 WK (purchased towards the end of 2005) has also experienced this cracked door panel problem on three of her doors. She brought her Jeep in today for routine maintenance and planned on mentioning the door problem as well, prepared for a fight after reading all the horror stories on this thread.
Surprisingly, after conferring with someone else (I'm guessing a manager), the service advisor told her that they would repair the doors for $50. I don't know if that's $50 per door or a $50 deductible as my mom had purchased the extended warranty on her jeep when she bought it. Either way, we'll take it with all the bs some of these dealerships are pulling charging $600-$700 per door. They told her that they have to order the parts and that the Jeep will be in the shop for 4 days, but we'll take whatever we can get.
Maybe Chrysler is starting to acknowledge this problem now? I was surprised at the complete non-drama my mom had in getting them to repair the doors. Fingers crossed it will stay that way through the parts coming in and installed. Will update once everything is fixed.

Well I'm just starting this process so I hope mine goes as easily. If not I am proposing to use Twitter to follow up as I have had good luck getting responses from companies this way. One negative tweet can multiple faster than rabbits.
