What a Joke
 
We pay big money for our trucks and they leave out the little things.

Today i purchased the upper glove lamp for my 2011 Sport all the wiring is there behind the fill plate there is even power to the wires but Dodge decided to leave out the light $ 15.00 Cdn later i now have light in my upper glove box.

It is retarded, but I guess if they save $5 per truck by not including it, multiplied by every truck they make, they save a lot of money. It's just like when American Airlines saved something like $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each salad served in first class.

Do you have the bulb number that's something I never even thought of?!

It's called "de-contenting" and it's a cost savings measure. They aren't on the best financial ground and every little bit helps.

Is there a list somewhere of simple things like this that are easy to upgrade?

I guess another example would be the factory brake controller.

Funny that they went through the trouble of wiring the darn thing up to stop there. Thanks for the info.

It's simple, it's part of the luxury package. I have the light in the glove box.
Dodge won't change de wiring for all different option group.


If i remember correctly, Dodge sold 17 000 Ram in February. 17 000 truck sold x 15$ for each light = 255 000$ saved.

They have 2 options, include the light in every truck or sell the light in the luxury package and make money out of it... They will take option 2 for sure.

Here in Canada the luxury package is 450$. So 17 000 truck sold x 450$ for luxury package = 7 650 000$

So they can have a 255 000$ deficite or a 7 650 000$ profit... Wich one would you take?
