The squeaking is NORMAL!!! Lol
I’m just keeping all my options open. If FCA fucks me over I need an exit strategy. Maybe get a 2023 TRX when they figure shit out
I always said I'll never buy first model year.... wtf was I thinking??? Maybe I just tell them to take it back. We don't get 3 days in CO to return, and they just properly fd me on my PW trade-in.

I’m really sorry to hear about your truck.
RamCares is a real thing. They got my trouble ticket escalated immediately.
Its disgusting the amount of issues these trucks are having right out of the box

Thanks, hoping they can handle. I bought an extended warranty, I'm going to expect they credit that back and warranty this motor for a Looong time. I won't, but tempted to drain remaining oil to see how much is left in it.

2020, loaded, 10k miles with 35's and fuel beast wheels. It had a reported accident, but was only 1900 in damage (running board, wheel, tire) from a Prius bumping off of me.

45k. Not good.

Don't feel bad, these trucks will have the same problems if you buy them two years later.

What do y’all think I could get for a 88k TRX with 400 miles?
You should be able to go to a dealer charging the 10k mark up on dealer stock truck and trade it in for close to what you paid. It seems your issue isn't impacting major functionality so its still a good truck otherwise. I personally couldn't private sell it knowing it has an issue but a ADM scummy dealer.....all day long. Might also make sense to read up on the states lemon laws to make sure you know when you qualify and have that as an out option. Sucks man. Really hoping they come back and solve what it is.

Oh yeah I’d never sell a messed up truck to a private buyer. But a dealership can suck my shit

If mine comes with any ticks or bangs, It's going to stay at the dealer until it is fixed. We have photos of negligence in assembling these trucks properly. My Challenger R/T stayed at the dealer for weeks because of the rail dust in my white paint. My Challenger Hellcat stayed at the dealer until it was fixed. Hood scoop fell out, door wind noise, Tech fixing the door damaged the panel and had to wait weeks for it to come. The longer it is in their possession, the more of case you have that the vehicle is a lemon if they can't fix the issue multiple times
