Default Hood safety latch lifting rod assembly

Hello everybody. New to this forum and need some help. I recently purchased a 2000 Ram 1500 for my sons, and the grill has a hole cut in it to release the safetly latch so you can open the hood. I found a lifting handle with the rod, but it is on backorder. I tried to find one from a junkyard, but didn't get one call back. Does anyone know of a source for this? It isn't in the LMC catalog. If someone could post a picture of theirs, I could fabricate my own. Nothing is there except a bracket near the bottom of the grill.

I would keep looking at the junkyard, possibly someone that is parting out a truck on craigslist. OR if your truck didn't have the recall done for the hood safety latch, then I would take it in and have it installed at no charge.
Keep it Mopar, buy Mopar Parts.

I am completely disgusted every time I think about having to take a distributor cap off of one of these trucks -Screamintrashcan
