Trackhawk just delivered, a couple quick questions!

What's up guys? I've been a member for a month or so but haven't done in intro thread as my Trackhawk was just delivered this morning. Leftover '18 I purchased from Massachusetts with 100 miles on it. A have a couple quick questions for you guys before I call up my local dealer. I searched on the forum & saw some of you complained about body panel fitment. Maybe I didn't search properly but I couldn't find anything about headlight moisture/condensation. Has anyone had issue with the headlight moisture/condensation? If so, did you take it to the dealership & did they fix it or replace the headlights? I did a pretty thorough look over on the vehicle when it was delivered this morning & will be going over it more tonight when I'm done with work. For those of you with had body panel issues, did you take it to the dealership & if so, were they able to make some adjustments & improve the panel fitment? I will attach some pics of the headlights/panel fitment areas.

I have an appt. the beginning of next week with the detailer for paint correction, ceramic coating, clear bra, tint, etc. If possible, I would to get these issues sorted before it gets dropped off at the detailer. Any input is appreciated!

Trying to add a couple pictures, maybe I'm doing something wrong, what's the easiest way to do that? Do I need a certain amount of posts do upload pictures?

I had horrible condensation in my 14 SRT, and dealer replaced both headlamps under factory 3/36 warranty.

No headlight issues yet with 18 TH, except for them seeming a bit dimmer than the 14.

I live in Raleigh, NC & have a good size Jeep dealership 10 mins away. I have a good buddy that is a tech there too.

Put off your ceramic coating until your issues are resolved. If they replace anything, then you’ll be back at the coating place. Don’t be surprised if they order new and replace if it’s the fender flares. I’m dropping mine off after nearly two years to finally get all that stuff fixed and adjusted.

Ugh, I was hoping that wouldn't be the case. Luckily I haven't another vehicle to drive as I didn't want to start putting miles on the TH until I got all the work done with the detailer.

Pictures added to my original post, let me know what you guys think.

They’ll give you a rental while it’s in the shop but I have the same issues with the flares and they’re replacing them. Good luck👍🏻

Since it's been sitting for many many months (probably outside) it not terribly surprising that you might see some condensation. You might check the headlights after you've had the lights on after a few hours of night driving. The condensation might be gone and not return under normal driving conditions. (Maybe)

I had the dealer try to align my passenger side rear tail light lens, I didn't like the fit. The rest of mine was fine.
