I would check out your mowners manuel and see what warranty is give on the paint/fit and finish. If you are still covered under factory warranty, I don't see why it woulndn't be covered.

I got my 99 sd repainted in 2000 because of paint flaking off, and it was warrantied. As long as nothing you did caused it, if its under warranty you should be able to get it warrantied. Don't volunteer any info to the dealer, just say paint is peeling off and see what they say. If you don't like the answer the give you, just call the number in the owners manual and start a complaint process. If that don't work out, you could always get a lawyers opinion on the matter, but you would probably be better off at that point paying for it yourself.

I can't belive your 06's paint is peeling. We had a 87 dually that 15 years later the paint was still good. Hope the dealer covers it!

My '01 has rusting in the bottom corners of the window. I believe the weather strip has metal in it and gradually wears through the rubber. It starts rubbing and thereby exposing bare metal.
