I have a green colored 1994 Dodge ram 1500 long bed pick up. The paint started to peel off of the hood and then progressed to the top of the cab. The paint has now been reduced to the primer. I have noticed this problem on all 90s ram 4 x 4 pick ups. Especially in the green and white color. Does anyone know if Chrysler will fix this problem.

Truck was garaged for first 10 years and paint was fine. Parked outside for about 2 years and clear coat began to flake off. Especially, on roof and hood. Paint is a medium red.

Have had problem with clear coat coming off, now going to get the whole truck repainted same color, black for just under 2,500.00 this seems like a good price, I hope.

Clear-coat paint peeling off new paint job.

I have had some cracking and pealing. Was told by my local Dodge Dealer that in the paint jobs for my year truck, they combined the primer with the paint. As a result, the primer will not stick to the body and start to pull away from the body. All that can be done is to get a new paint job. Still the best vehicle I have ever owned.

Not precisely sure when it started but within the last two years about 30% of my cab roof clear coat is peeling and my bedsides (right next to the Linex) and fender tops are starting to bubble and peel.
