forgive me if I am wrong, I have been driving trucks for the past 10 years.... but what cars do you not touch the paint when closing the trunk?

Gandalf, I have the same complaint. On the other hand, Daytona is correct.. The funny thing is, I want to keep the car so clean, I find myself looking for some sort of non-painted or 'inside' part to close the trunk, or close the doors.. but I know its just me being anal. However like I said, I agree... not to sure what Dodge would do about it tho.. How about making it all electronic :)

Some engineer at DCX was thinking of you guys...
To the right of the latch mechanism is a plastic pocket to use to close the trunk.

Man, and I thought I was the only one.
My wife thought I was nuts! There I was closing the trunk with the end of my shirt so I wouldn't leave a finger print.

Thanks for the good input. I tried the plastic handle on the right inside to get the trunk down most of the way and then I use the Dodge RAM logo to close it shut. It works great!!!

Yeah I got grief over it because i leave finger prints all over the place in the house, coffee cup rings on all the tables, dishes on the counter, but I will pull out my shirt and use the tail to close the trunk.. Priorities man... Priorities

Your GF is right! I honestly was expecting to get flamed for agreeing with Gandalf. "If you washed your car every 2.4 days like you should, there wouldn't be fingerprints" and such.

Now.. if we can just work on a good way to close the passanger doors from the outside without leaving fingerprints (not even on the pillars) - then we'd be getting somewhere. What I do (and this is so retarded) is park sideways on my driveway to let gravity close the door. :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

I carry a lint-free cotton towel with me in my briefcase, and use it to close my doors. :embarrese
