Hey guys, I went to a local dealer and noticed this issues in 3 of 3 TRX there. Is this a common issue?



 
In Florida it is. I guess that’s one good thing for freezing my ass off up here.

@blaster9 just had his replaced under warranty.

Getting that fixed won’t solved the issue permanently. It look like RAM only have temporarily fixes. What a shame.
 
The material on the 2023s (and on new replacement dashes) does look different. Doesn’t really mean anything though. This has been happening with the Limiteds since 2019.

Any possible solution to avoid this (without moving from Florida 🤣🤣)?
 
Another reason to buy new. That's a headache I wouldn't want to mess with due to time and cost.

You are right, all of them were 2021 and 2022 models. I will go to see a 2023.

I’m waiting for my 2024. It’s been in production for 2 months 😂😂 I guess the strike…
 
Mine is not like that at all but it is kept in a garage AND I use a sunshade when it is parked outside. For us in Florida Inthink a sunshade is essential no matter what vehicle you have.

Yeah, the 2023s definitely have more texture. My 2021 does have some wrinkles that have been there since day one but the material itself is otherwise very smooth. And no peeling thankfully.

Same Problem the SRT Jeeps had. 14-18' models. They actually did a recall on them. I had clear tint applied to my windshield to cut down on the heat.

I had my windshield triple ceramic’d with i3 on day 5 of ownership. Made 0 difference unfortunately in the Fla heat insofar as dash bubbling. I think some are just defective.
 
Time to attempt a free fix. Entire center portion of dash is bubbling off my launch edition. Out of warranty so we’ll see, but I’ve bought 4 Rams at the dealer so I’m counting on some good will

Good will a dealership? 😅😂
Yeah, they will tell you that they can get that fixed for half of price, and probably they will charge you the dash price at Mopar store, plus shipping, plus labor! Do it yourself and you will finish first. Maybe they will keep your truck for 2-4 weeks. You should get an extended warranty or just save some money for this.
 
I have a launch edition that I bought from Florida. I had to replace the dash, both front door panels and my steering wheel all from leather defects. All covered under warranty.

Yes, here in Florida the humidity and the sun will burn and unglue any dash. 😉☀️🦖
