Default Bad smell issue - who has been fixed, and who is getting a new truck?

Thought it was time to consolidate into one thread some concise information.
Let's keep this thread clean and used for documentation so others can approach their dealer/Chrysler with concise details.

I have a 2013 Laramie crew, hemi, 8 speed.
Developed the smell at ~1000 miles, maybe less.
Horrid smell, from 50 feet away. Drove it for 5000 miles while I waited for a fix. Smell lessened as time went on.

Dealer council reported that the smell is caused by a reaction with the casting contamination left by incomplete cleaning of some intakes, reacting with the coolant and rubber hoses. It was not the coolant itself reacting.

Fixed in early December. All new rubber hoses, double flushed, and refilled with model year correct OAT coolant.

1000 miles and a few weeks later, still no smell.

Hillview motors in Greensburg Pa was the dealer, and are well versed in the issue.

this seems like a simple fix that no one should have an issue getting this done. customer service seems to be getting worse since since mr fiat came on board.
