Ram 1500 TRX 5.8L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50 miles

It's hard for me to believe Dodge designed this cap to get caught on whatever is slid out of the bed of the truck. The cap snaps back on, but it won't be long before the fasteners no longer work. If there is no recall, there should be. This is unacceptable in a $40,000 truck. If anyone has any suggestions to fix this problem, I'd love to hear them.
