Smile If you have mobility issues Dodge will help pay for Running Boards and Backup devices.

Just wanted to thank a follow forum user, for letting all of us know that Dodge will help pay for running boards and Backup monitors for your new dodge if your new Dodge truck didn't come with them factory installed.. If you have mobility issues and a medical doctor will write you a note. Dodge will help pay for these things HOWEVER YOU NEED TO DO THIS WITHIN 60 DAYS OF PURCHASE...

Today I just ordered the Mopar running boards and the Backup Camera and rearview mirror Monitor. Total cost to me was less than $300.00 installed.

Dodge paid the other $600.00 dollars.

This is a great program if you have a disability, goto

and check it out. Just make sure you qualify and fill out the application and send in the required documents.

If you have other special needs Dodge will help pay for other add-ons as well.

Default My Dealership didn't mention it either, you are not alone

I have handicapped plates too, and the dealership didn't mention it to me either. I found out while researching this forum last week after I bought my truck.

If I were you.... I would go back to the dealer and asked to talk to the sales manager, and let them know how you feel about them not offering you this program. Dodge had this program up and running all last year. And see what they will do to make it upto you.

I am sure they will say that they didn't know about it, but at least give it a try.

When I approached my dealership they didn't have a clue, but now they know you can bet they will be using it as a sales tool to help close deals with those of us that have a disability.

Let us know what happens.

John.

Texas state residents who are disabled can claim exemption from motor vehicle sales and use taxes on new or used vehicles when adaptive equipment is installed for use by a disabled driver. The state sales tax applied to the cost of the adaptive equipment, or any charges for the installation of the equipment, may also be exempted. Claims can be made after the date of purchase.

I called the Canadian office and asked about a tonneau cover. I transport my dad and he is in a wheelchair so I figured a tonneau cover would be possible as it is needed to protect the chair from the elements.

I got a positive response from the lady I talked to but it can't be confirmed until its reviewed by the office.

I'll let ya know how I make out.

Thats pretty cool that Chrysler steps up and does that. My fiances parents do handicap van conversion and they get peole all the time that complain about their other vehicles and how nice it would be to have things a little more disabled friendly without being a full on van.

Kudos to you Mopar

A little off topic, but how do you like the backup camera with the mirror monitor? I have the 130 radio, so an upgrade to the regular camera would be big $$$ and other aftermarket options havent impressed me much.

Default My Thoughts

Being a retired UPS manager, backup devices prevent unwanted accidents, UPS started to install backup monitors to it package cars in the mid 2000's. And it paid off, so with 60,000 drivers on the road with less accidents it makes sense to invest in one of these.

Ok, back to the Rear view mirror monitor system that mopar sells, Yes, I like it and its worth the money. The dealership in my small town never put one on before but after they installed it, I was impressed. There are other cheaper systems out there that can do the job but if you have the money, I would buy this system.

You can use it to backup to your boat, horse and rv trailers and hookup on the first try. The camera itself can get dirty but it seems to be holding up well under snowing wet spring snow that we have gotten in Montana this year.

I have the 130 radio system too and didn't want to add a small monitor around my dash, I think having aftermarket stuff attached to the dash or under the dash looks cheap, so the rear view mirror monitor is a professional looking upgrade. Oh, the mirror also works with your uconnect system as well.

I know they want $495 for this installed but I would make them a offer, never hurts to try.

Hope that helps.
