Hi all, new to the forums, and proud owner of a mineral gray 08 quad cab hemi 2wd with almost 1,200 miles on it now. Ive been reading posts and hanging around for awhile, like the site a lot. The truck has been good to me thus far, minus a shotty passenger door speaker (TSB), as well as Sirius cancelling my subscription after only two months of ownership (will be taken care of). However, I made a very interesting discovery yesterday which brings me to my first post:
On Wednesday I went to vacuum the interior, and when I lifted the rear seat, I noticed about a half inch of standing water in the storage space on the driver side
. There was no trail of water, just a small pool, with the formed capert being damp around the pool (as if the pool had drained an inch). Ended up soaking up as much of the water as possible with a towel, put a fan on it and left the windows open to dry it out. Its sunny now, but Im still keeping an eye on it.
It rained Sunday through Tuesday, but I have never left a window open (even if I did I dont know how the seat would not be wet, but there would be a pool of water under it). I noticed that there are two plugs under the rear cab of the truck (similar to the ones in the floor of the bed), and the one closest to the side of the truck with a blue gasket was loose. Wondering if this is the culprit, but have a hard time believing water could collect up through this hole.
Wanted to see if anyone else has encountered this problem, as well as give others a heads up. I didnt buy a new truck to work on it, so its going to the dealer on Monday, hoping to get this straightened out before the rain starts coming down. Will keep you posted.
