    My hood has started warping!! Dodge has approved a new satin black hood. Will this make my cat a non matching numbers car??

    Agreement with the lord. Doors have stickers that can't be replaced

    Any photos of the warped hood? Curious to know where on the hood the damage is located. How many miles on the odo? Any mods to the power train that would facilitate operating at higher temps? Thanks for the additional details...

    I'll get some!! No mods!! 3,800 miles. Started sagging below flush on the passenger side 1/8in to 1/4in!! Dodge approved the replacement within 30min after the dealer submitted it.. Must not be the first one, I'm thinking...

    Make sure you order the stickers for under your hood, should be 3.

    Wow...that's interesting. I've not seen this issue come up in this forum before but then again I'm not able to check-in on a daily basis either. Looking forward to seeing your photos. Thanks for the additional info.

    That's what I was thinking also, I've only seen hoods replaced for paint issues so far...

    I'm stumped PTC why it would do this, would think it was an adjustment issue but obviously not with Dodge approving. Curious if they will follow up with you after the Dealer sends the hood back for credit.

    My hood did have to be adjusted when it came in off the truck!! The dealer got it pretty close but the sagging has just gotten worse!! No idea why..

    I do remember you tweaking the adjustment knobs at the Oasis a couple of months ago. Seemed like we got it close but not perfect. Sounds like you'll have a perfect fit and adjustment when it's said and done.

    You can buy the 3 stickers, I'm 100% sure. There are oem hoods on eBay, primed no stickers. The replacement hood won't come from Brampton. Probably a parts warehouse, Orlando, Denver, Milwaukee, New York etc.

    The bigger question is will the hood need to be painted by the dealer? I just had my Satin hood repainted under warranty. It looked like it was painted with a spray can from the factory.
