Great news! I went to the dealer today to discuss the mentioned panels. I said that I wanted to R/R the panels, so the service writer came out and took pictures to send to Chrysler; he told me he usually would not do it that way, but did not have a problem with me doing it. I was very happy, and will get him a gift card so he and his wife can go out to dinner. Everything should be in in a few days. Also, my step bars had arrived; now I can get in this beautiful machine with ease.
