Exactly. They probably pay a few cents per bulb.

I know that, but do i have cost number?

Let say by selling 15$ they make 50% profit. So cost would be 7.50$
They would still lose 127 500$ just in February.

Now 75% of retail is profit... They only pay 3.75$ per light.
They would still lose 63 750$ just in February.


The profit they make but selling it in the luxury package still make more profit. So why would they put it stock in the truck when they can more more money by selling it in option package?

Now how many people will by it at retail price? Even more profit.



It is better that way?

My truck came with a light in the upper glove box... I always wonder why they didn't put one in the lower one also.... I was thinking about putting an LED bar in there or something and just wiring it to the upper glove boxes switch...

My truck was ordered with the belief that the luxury group was part of the Big Horn Package. The luxury group was on the sticker but not the truck. Dealer passed to Chrysler and Chrysler refunded the $545 for luxury group.

Now I need the part numbers to add the garage door opener to the overhead console.

My truck has the Luxury Group (ADAS) included in its list of installed options yet I don't have the hood-lamp or the glovebox lamp.
I am in the process of contacting my dealer as Chrysler Canada was useless in answering my questions.
If they are supposed to be there then I want them installed at no extra cost to me. Period. Just waiting to hear back from the dealer...hopefully they'll have an answer soon.

There is another thread on this, no underhood lamp and no glovebox light. It's not in my '11 sport, you need to get your build list from dodge owner website, and go to the dealer with your build list and ask them to install your standard equipment. And I plan on raising hell.

My Sport has the light but not the luxury group so not sure how I ended up with it, a light in lower glove box would be ideal.

because they are selling a truck for upwards of fifty thousand dollars that only costs them about twenty thousand to make we would not be paying the high prices for vehicles if the Union had not ran up the wages in the auto industry. Do janitors really need to make over twenty dollars an hour ?
I have friends with college degrees that dont make over twenty dollars an hour. Personally I dont care how many BILLIONS of dollars they profit each year maybe if the CEOs of these companies werent taking Huge multi million dollar bonuses on top of the huge salaries they already make these companies would not be in the bind that they are in. I know if I was running a business and it was between shutting down or reducing my OWN salary to benefit everyone in the future that would definitely be a probable solution instead these guys with the major corporations tend to say screw it especially now that they know the government will bail them out anyways sorry for the rant just my two cents
