I had undercoating installed before I picked it up. 3rd truck with undercoating when brand new. Works great.

Same here. They ordered a front and rear bumper , and I'm pretty confident now that it is definitely a defective product and hope to have better luck with the replacement. Especially since I only have 4000 km on the truck!!! Aside from that I really enjoy the comfort of this truck.

But what will you do when your warranty is up. This isn't a good fix if you ask me.

Like how come the bumpers rust there should be a reason.

The problem is chrome bumpers don't get chromed on the inside. We send them out for rechroming instead of replacing them. When we get them back we undercoat the inside of the bumper before installation. It seems to work good. That being said a friend just bought a new 2010 Ram a couple months ago and he was denied warranty on his rear bumper and it was rusting after only a few weeks. The dealer he bought it from is a known issue and hopefully he'll take it somewhere else.

Doug, Stony Plain Chrysler in Stony Plain took pictures and ordered me front and back bumpers. They installed them last week. Really pleased with the service. I also had phoned Chrysler Canada and was told i was free to go to any dealership for repair. I don't think cleaning them will solve the problem. I had cleaned mine only to have it come back a few days later.. Good luck , let me know how it works out for you!!!!!

I just had my 2011 ram bighorn 1500 in on Tuesday of this week. They are replacing the rear, and looking into possibly replacing the front. The rear is rusting on the sides along the bottom where mud from the tire starts to collect. The front is rusting around the side edges up inside the wheel well. I also am getting rust under the trim panel that runs between the tow hooks. There's also some appearing around the fog lamps. I expect them to replace the front one as well. 4400 miles. Sorry Canucks, don't the km conversion eh?
