Tailgate Spiler Replacement???
So I took my Ram into the dealership for an oil change and when I went to pick it up tonight I look at my receipt when I got home and it preformed RRT-11-019 for a recall to replace the tailgate spoiler. So I run outside to check and I am pretty sure the black plastic piece on top of the tailgate does look different than before.

So what was this recall about?

Tagging along to find out. That's an interesting one.

I just got called about this one.

The woman on the phone told me the recall was for:
Rearview puddlelight / Tailgate Spoiler

Not sure how these could possibly be related, perhaps just lumped together. Also I definately don't have any puddle lights on any type ... and the dodge website doesn't list any recalls for my vehichle when I searched on the last 8 of the vin number. I'm a little confused.

The dealer did the same on my 2009 dodge ram, Dealer said they have a recall for them falling off while driving something about plastic tabs breaking.

Yes, the black plastic on the edge of the tailgate was coming off while driving
they had so many complaints that they had to put out an RRT way back in mid '09

there is a lot to love about Gen 4 Rams
BUT, that plastic crap on the top edge of the bed & tailgate isn't one of them, it covers a very unfinished looking bed & tailgate & the sheet metal that is there is at different heights

Good to know. Mine is lifting on edges. Guess I need to take it in and get it replaced.
