slightly confused...

Hey guys just wanted to think out loud a little...

I spoke with a Dodge rep today about my truck's trim level and certain options it has and he confirmed that its an SLT and has the Thunder Road package.

Now, this is where I'm confused because there's no TR badges or an SLT badge on the truck.

I understand the TR badges being MIA since that seems to be pretty common from my research, but the SLT badge???

I suppose the previous owner could've simply removed it but that would be odd since he didn't do a single other thing to the truck...

Why remove one little badge on the tail gate but leave all the others?

Any other ideas as to why my SLT badge is MIA?

oh and I'm curious if you guys think I should pick up some Thunder Road badges... already have the black/chrome look going so they'd fit right in on the doors.

I've de-badged mine as many do, but if the badges appeal to you then go for it.

I have bent a couple of tail gates in my time, mostly caused by pipe or lumber bouncing on a closed tail gate.

I'll never know for sure. I'm thinking of getting the Thunder Road badges, could care less about the slt one. Do the dealers still sell them? I don't like Ebay...

Could have been done at the dealership. I have seen some here on the lot that only had the "RAM 1500" and "HEMI" badges on them. There was a Lone Horn Edition at the local dealership here that only had the "HEMI" badges on it . It had 4 miles on it.
