I began to look around at the 12's and 11's we have pictures of and I have something different on mine that I don't see on any others. Behind the wheels there is a 8 inch black plastic thingy attached to the fender. What is it and what is it purpose? Can it be removed or best left attached? Here is a picture of the truck,the one on the back shows up best. Just wondering,,what they are for, looks,or to make a dummy ask a dumb question.

Also, if you look a little closer on the front edges of the rear bumper, in the gap between the fender and the bumper, you will likely see a piece of clear plastic stuck there, for the same reason I presume. I thought it was a nice touch on Dodge's part.

I have those clear strips on the front and back guards of the RumbleBee. When i first noticed them I thought they were some sort of bolt on panel attached to the guard. I marveled at the neat manner with which it had been done but could never find any bolts that held it all together.
Discovering reality was a humbling experience I have yet to live down with my mates.
