I got a letter the other day explaining the situation and saying I will be getting a recall notice and they are working on getting parts made.

It also said if I had a bad one that the dealer would replace them with current stock and they would have to be replaced when the stainless ones come in.

No actually I checked the VR straps to see if they would fit. They're about 5" too short. Apparently Dodge mounts the straps farther out on the tailgate. Less leverage on the straps, think about it.

I don't want to sound like I'm bragging about this truck but the tailgate feels like it weighs significantly more than my GMC's did.

There is no doubt that Dodge does build a great product
. If only they could make an interior with creature comforts as good as the General...
