Default Something Missing

I have a 2013 crew cab sport for about 3 months now. LOVE the truck. No issues so far except one. I noticed that I am missing the rubber sealer strip between the cab and the bed. I checked multiple 1500 trucks at the dealer and they all have them. My 2009 sport did as well. What are the purpose of these rubber strips? Maybe to prevent dust. Not sure if I'm crazy that I want the dealer to add them, but I figure they must be good for something if RAM puts them on the trucks.

I believe it was to make the air flow transfer to the side of the bed and around vs around the cab. Better aerodynamics?


However it's not on my 13 2500

I assume the strips are to cut down on turbulence and wind noise. I would get with your dealer to see if you can get him to install them.

yeah, I was missing one. It took me a few weeks to notice it. So, I went to the dealer when it was closed on a sunday and took one off of another truck sitting on the lot.

WOW !!!!

You can't be serious ? If so not real bright to post that you did.. Im sure the dealer would have given/order you one if it was truly missing when you purchased the truck..
