So as I was loading up the bed the other day at Lowes, I noticed the rear driver's side fender flare has separated from the body of the truck. See image below.

I'm gonna try and slide some double sided tape in the gap, hopefully that'll solve it!

Get the 3M double sides tape, probably best to take it all off clean off the glue and just replace all the tape and stick it back on.

That would be a trip to the dealer for me, i appreciate it may not be suitable for you, but, any damage will not be covered under the warranty

Hell yes take that back to the dealer man! I wouldnt think twice of "home made fix" on something like that. I KNOW you paid good money for that truck (we ALL have) get them to do it right.

Yea I changed my mind, gonna take it in. My only issue is that I bought from a dealer in SC, and I live in New Jersey.

I've taken my Challenger to a local dealer that I didn't buy from for warranty work, so I'll just go there. It's hard not having the dealer I bought from close by, but that's the price I pay for such a good deal.

Def. As long as it's a Chrysler certified dealer you're good. They car less about where you got it from as long as you "keep it in the family" they're happy to help.

The warranty states it is to be taken to an authorized service centre. If they refuse the work then I'd never darken their doors again and I'd be filing a complaint with FCA. It's bad for the brand. It's just plain bad customer service.

This is a simple fix but it is a truck under warranty so should be fixed by an FCA authorized service centre and documented.

Its all under warranty at any dealer you take it to, but your preferred "treatment" will usually only go as far as where you buy it from. You just leverage to your salesman the importance of moving you "up" in line to get things fixed or he/she will lose your next purchase to somebody else.

This is much more prevalent in the recreation (boating, atv) world. They are all "Obligated" to work on the product line they sell but unless you bought from them, you're at their mercy as to when their service bays become open. I always try to buy local just for these circumstances. But I understand why people go outside to get great deals, you just hope you never have to use your local dealer for warranty issues

Please take it in. Under 36,000 miles with the bumper to bumper, always take it in. If you don't take it in, FCA won't have a warranty claim. Without warranty claims they won't open a case file and their quality control guys will have nothing to do. Plus, the more warranty claims per issue there are, the better chance that issues and problems will be getting things fixed or designed out of next years model.

True...never considered it in that way.

Mine are doing the same thing, I'm not surprised because my 2014 Laramie I had them replaced 3 times before I get rid of the truck

Definitely not allowed under the dealer contract with FCA. Crap like that could cause them to lose their right to sell the brand. I would contact FCA and still take it to a different dealership....I wouldn't trust them after that BS.
