Wheel well headlight access cap?

Hey guys!

I'm fairly new to forum, mostly been admiring from afar, finally mustered up the courage to post after a bad conversation with the parts department at my local dealer.

I'm the proud owner of a new 2015 GC altitude, bought it back in October of 2014. I drive the truck daily and a lot more at night than during the day. I recently ordered two pairs of 6000k HID's to replace the factory installed halogens. I decided to upgrade both my low beams and fog lights. I couldn't be happier with the results.

Could've been due to my negligence, most likely it was, but I'm assuming I did not secure the wheel well headlight access cap and must have fallen off while driving. I called my local dealer and explained, I simply need the cap located in the driver side wheel well. The service rep started off by laughing and said, "Oh boy I feel sorry for you, it'll be $110 to replace that cap, the only way we sell it is with the whole inner fender guard, good luck finding it separately."

Does any one know where one can be purchase from, without ordering the entire inner fender guard? I can't justify spending $110 for an item I don't need.

To be fair, perhaps that combination is the part the dealer can order and stock... trying one of the many online mopar parts places [dealers doing internet parts] would show that.

If that is the case, SOME dealers would tell you to look online and just buy the cover--some wouldn't.

I'd probably buy more than one to keep shipping cost from == part cost.

I completely agree! It's ridiculous how dealers literally want to get every thing they can out of you. Not all dealers are like this, but for the most part the majority tend to try to screw you over!

I ordered three of them, one back up for the passenger and two for the driver side. He stated they only sell the cap with the purchase of the entire inner fender splash guard, and that they would not order the cap alone. Never once said anything about checking online just simply "goodluck".

What bothers me is that we are dropping a cool $40k+ on a new truck and they still want to nickel and dime for small items such as this.
I'm not expecting it to be free, but give me a respectable price!
