I saw on ebay about a month ago this guy was selling a peice of molding for the gap in the rear bumper and body. Has anyone else seen these and/or know any company that sells these. I am just wondering what they cost and who makes them. any help would be appreciated.

No, I've never seen them myself but I have wondered why the gap was so big. I just figured it was that way because "it's a Dodge".

If this site didn't have the camera in the left column of the thread so I know I posted something in there, I wouldn't be able to find this thread tomorrow.

Don't waste your time with the e-bay item, it's just a piece of weather stripping. If that's the route you want to take, they say paint the strip to match your "D" then stick it in the gap. It'll probably look good until the paint starts to peel, I'll just keep the gap.

The gap is there because the frame flex's so much when articulating the rear bumper moves quit a bit. If I remember I'll try and get a good picture of it the next time I'm out.

Ah hah, I figured there had to be a reason for the major gaps. I always wondered about that one.

Right, the bumpers are attached to the frame of the vehicle, not the body. Like a real truck should be! ;)

I think I have more gap then I use to have. I think my rear bumper has moved down some. If you look in the picture on the drivers side you can see that the bumper is up against the body.

Weby are you sure it's not beacuse the right side's about a foot higher and the left lower?

It has pushed the bumper down some since it pushed up against the body. I don't think it will go down any further then it has but it is lower then it was before. I'll get a picture for you guys
