While working on the wife's 2001 R/T D, I noticed the paint under the hood around the engine bay (Patriot Blue) was really thin & poorly applied. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this with their truck?

My '98 is solid white in this area.

I'm concerned the truck was wrecked & repaired & poorly repainted. I did a Carfax on it prior to purchase & nothing came up.

Thanks! I guess this is not the first time production quality drops off towards the end of a model run.

its like that on my 99 DAP R/T as well. looks like they painted the truck body as a assembly after all the body panels were installed. a way to save $$$$
