Default 09 Tailgate Spoiler Recall.....

When you go to the dealership for whatever reason, and ask you to let them fix the recalls on the 09 ram; dont let them mess with the spoiler recall! They will break off the plastic clips that hold it on....(which happened to me today.. and another new truck they tried to take one off of to fix my truck with!) also the new plastic spoilers are on back order....so you'll have to ride around without the plastic piece that goes over the tailgate til they get it in.... and it looks like garbage.....so my advice is to jus leave it be til it breaks then a get a new one....jus a lil heads up for everyone. Has anyone else had this problem yet? Anyone know of any quick fixes for the old spoiler til the new one gets here? I tried double sided tape but it blew off at like 5mph...
Thanks
-Ramrod....

Mine flew off while I was doing 80 on the freeway...Couldn't retrieve it...Went to the dealership assuming I'd have to buy another (figuring that the dealership wouldn't buy my story) and found out about the recall. They replaced it via warranty and haven't had any problems with it yet. It's been about a month...

They replaced mine and I didn't have a problem other than it being warped on the passanger side edge. I'm going to get it replaced at some point.

Try some emblem tape from the auto parts store. It's made by 3M and has a red paper backing. Comes in two different sizes. That stuff will hold it for sure. Just make sure to press firmly down so it will stick well.

It's not a recall, it's a RRT. The dealer told me the other day that now in addition to the tape, they are adding some screws.

I haven't had any issues with mine but it would depend on what kind of liner you have and what you use the bed for as to if you would have a problem or not. I have a BedRug and it goes over the lip of the spoiler a little bit. So even if you drag something out of the bed, it will not get caught on the spoiler and rip it off.

I kinda hate my tailgate spoiler.

This is the 5th Ram in a row I've owned, and the first with this type of spoiler.
It seems to collect the water there. Even heavy dew will collect there and when you put the gate down and lean in to grab whatever the damn thing will soak you as you forget it's wet.

I can see that it will be a problem in the winter with the tonneau cover freezing to it.

We will see.
