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.
