Default First Jeep!

Bought my first Jeep today after losing my 98 Ford Ranger to a total insurance claim. The Jeep is a 2001 Grand Cherokee Limited with only 55k miles. Drives and performs wonderfully. The only drawback is the paint job. The dealer had a local shop fix some scratches and a decision was made to re-paint. The vehicle looks good visually but on closer inspection I saw some overspray and orange peeling. More disconcerting is some minor flaking around a window exposing the original paint. My question is, is there anyway to know if the paint will stay put or should I just get used to the fact that it may end up as an eyesore in the next few years? Thanks for the input all. Looking forward to learning about my first Jeep!

Thinking it would never occur to me to put Moabs on a WJ but I kinda like it.

Thank you for commenting Ralph. By Moabs, Iím assuming you mean wheels? Is WJ a series designation for Cherokees?

Yes I did mean the wheels.
Yes '99 to '04 Grand Cherokees are WJ's
'93 to '98 Grand Cherokees are ZJ's
All Cherokee Sports to '01, that is the last year but then they did bring it back a couple years ago, are XJ's
WJ's have a 5X5 bolt pattern. I am guessing those wheels are 17"? Could be 16" with an adapter.
