The (P) parking brake symbol? Above it is the trailer brake controller.

KOs in 305/55/20 are $380 EACH! Ouch. Welp, maybe in a month or two. I want to get the front leveled first and would like to get the Mopar version of the Superlift 2.5" kit if it ever becomes real.

Default Badges came from my local dealer... had them in stock funny enough.

Removing the stockers isn't hard but the tape can be a PITA sometimes, and Dodge uses a LOT of tape to hold these on. You'll need a warm day, a rigid plastic trim tool(available at Harbor Freight for ~$6 for a set of 5 in various shapes/types) and some Uni-Solve or other mild adhesive remover to get the goo off. I like the Uni-Solve since its skin safe and good at breaking down adhesives. If you haven't seen Uni-Solve remover before look for it at Nursing or Medical Supply stores(eBay has it for ~$10 per 8oz. You'll need maybe 2oz to do both sides).

On a warm day(75 deg F or more) take the trim tool, rounded side toward the truck/paint and wedge it gently from the top of the badge down into the tape/foam portion behind it. Try to split the foam in 1/2, that way you're not directly on the paint(and don't worry too much about scratches as the adhesive is really hard on the tape). Work across the top of the badge until it begins to bend downward. You can usually pull it off at this point. Hopefully you'll get lucky and some of the tape will come with it. I wasn't so lucky and the majority of the tape stayed on the truck. You can use the trim stick to push the tape into "balls" or chunks and then peel it off from here. Be careful to scrape in an angle with the plane of the panel and not perpendicular to it. Oh, don't use heat if you can avoid it. It may be necessary if you're in a cold location but if you get the tape too hot it becomes tough and gooey and almost impossible to roll or push off.

Once all the letters/badges are off use the Uni-Solve on a towel or cloth to rub onto the remaining foam and adhesive. Coat it maybe 2x and let it sit for a few min. Repeat the Uni-Solve again and you'll see the foam parts pilling and falling off. Keep working on the adhesive and it will eventually come off. I used some liquid carnuba(The Wax Shop) wax to polish and finish cleaning... there were no scratches but this wax helps dissolve tar/road-grime spots and leaves no residue.

I'm not sure if there is a sealer or wax on it from the factory but I'll wax it good in a month or two for a finishing touch. Doesn't seem to need anything yet.

Default Grille and VES screen are here. Grille pic for reference:





Sorry for the color, big cloud in the background and I'm still learning my camera. Didn't realize it was so dark in the pic.

I'll install the VES once my AllGig gets here. Fender flares and steps should be done/here tomorrow. Exhaust is supposed to arrive today. Will update.
