paint bubbling & chiping off on rocker panels same place on both sides. FCA denied warranty claim. Said it was caused by rocks. Guess I am just so lucky that I managed to catch rocks in the same place, on both sides of the truck. ( Dealership Says they will touch it up for me).

My guess is that it wasn't prepared properly. You need to apply a rust neutralizing product or clean the rust off prior to touch up. I believe Shawn also had an issue like this on his truck.

That looks like rust underneath. It's rusting the paint off???

Man I would not be happy to see that and hear you will get no company satisfaction. Too new to do that in my book unless defective.

I also have rocks chips on my front bumper which is black. Rust is showing & it looks like the rocks chipped the paint to bare metal. You'd think that they would have done a better job in protecting the metal. 17000 Kim on a 2014 Outdoorsman.
