Default Just spoke to "Ram Specialists"

Sooo I just noticed my front License plate (have to have both here in NY) is only screwed into the chrome bumper. I checked my build sheet, thanks to the forum, and sure enough it states that I should have a front license plate bracket. code#MDAS. Alex from "Ram specialist" 800-726-4636, is working on it.....calling and checking with dealer yada, yada, yada.
Check your build sheet boys!

Anyone have any pics of the OEM bracket style? Does it go where the existing location is or somewhere else?

I'm missing the license plate bracket as well, it is on my build sheet.

Also, FYI to all the guys with Sports out there, the 2011 sports are missing the under hood light and glovebox light... we should have those too!

I'm going through the same "Special People" over at Chrysler trying to find out where my front bracket is since it was on my build sheet. Two months of phone tag with some jerk-off who I never actually spoke with when I finally pressed zero to open a new case closing out my previous case.

Spoke with a new rep named Ryan or Bryan. He couldn't find a part number to even send me a bracket. Called my dealer who claimed that they stopped installing brackets on trucks a couple months before my delivery, and that the part number is no longer available. When asked what that part # previously was, can't seem to share it with me. Best thing offered from Chrysler was reimbursing me to go out and buy a bracket. Still not resolved as I type this.

Anyone actually have a front bracket? Picture? Part Number? Please post....I don't think they exist honestly. I've never seen one other than fabricated ones by our fellow members. I'm leaning toward doing something myself at this point, but since I have a Sport, I'm gonna look under the hood and see what else is missing.

Seriously....you can't make this nonsense up.

Here's a thread that explains where to go to get your build sheet: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=66060. From the sounds of things, might be a good idea for a few folks, just to make sure they got what they should have.

Just got my build sheet... and missing these items when i bought my truck.
I would have never known if i hadnt asked for the build sheet to be emailed to me.
A HUGE thanks to whoever brought this up for people to find this information on how to get the build sheets.

So here is what i apparently got screwed out of when i bought the truck...
My Truck: 2010 Hemi Sport 4x4 QC
Code:
CV2P O/Head Console w/Trip Computor/UGDO
LBCP Glove Box Lamp
LBDP AshTray Lamp
MDAS Front License Plate Bracket
MXCS Front Bumper Sight Shields

Anybody know what this one is...??? >>>> "MXCS Front Bumper Sight Shields"

Also, can anybody post a picture of what their "CV2P O/Head Console w/Trip Computor" looks like...?
I`m not sure what it looks like, i dont see any overhead trip computor of the sort in my truck at all.
(but according to my build sheet, its supposed to have it in the truck)

they lied to us all
I have the 2009 Ram SLT w/ plastic bumper, they don't have a bumper license plate bracket MDAS, this what it should look like
http://www.************************/...hp?photo=40816
fill in with words DIESELTRUCKRESOURCE. com
better image on 2011 Ram, not a contoured fit
http://www.road2dodge.com/newcars/in...utler-missouri
They don't have a Overhead console with Trip Computer/UGDO CV2P
i never could figure out what MXCS Front Bumper Sight Shields were

LBDP ASH TRAY LAMP is there, green light shines from the overhead console down in the general direction of the climate controls on the dash, take a sheet of white paper & hold it under the overhead console at night, i think it is controlled by your headlight controls for dimming your EVIC. it is garbage

Looks like I'm calling the special people over at Ram again today to open yet another case. Missing the glovebox lamp, and the under hood lamp on my 2011 Sport.

After reading the above posts, looks like I might as well give up on my license plate bracket, and start fabricated something more than two bolts. Surprised there isn't duct tape holding the front plate at this point.

@Rambunkshuss: haven't a clue what that trip computer looks like. The only overhead console type thing I have on my Sport is a the Homelink buttons. On my window sticker is reads Traveler / Mini Trip Computer, and on my build sheet it reads LETS Traveler / Mini Trip Computer. Wonder if that can be found integrated into the EVIC or something.

I was wondering about that Ashtray Lamp....I kinda like that little light. I quite smoking about 15 years ago so I could care less about this nor do I even see an actual ashtray. However, that little light provides enough light to see my cup holder at night. I'll give that one a thumbs up.

Well...since it snowed last night, I think I'll take my truck out and spin the tires....time to find out if they actually installed LSD that I paid for next. Pathetic really......C'Mon Man!!!!!!
