Trail Rated Badge on Drivers side only

One of the first things that I noted after I drove my new Liberty Renegade home was the fact that a Trail Rated medallion was applied only on the drivers side front fender. The dealer confirmed that this is the case on all trail rated Jeeps. I wanted the medallion on both front fenders and checked with the parts dept for a second one. The cost is in the mid $30 range, so I waited for Christmas. My wife had one under the tree for the Jeep (and me). She said they must me gold plated at that cost.

Mid $30s?

Ripoff.

That badge is supposed to sell for around $25ish.

Roy, you wife loves you, cause mine wouldn't buy me the letter "J" for 30 cents.

I noticed that too. They had a used one at the dealer where some guy had gone badge happy and placed on on all sides and the back. I kinda want a second one just to balance it out because Im weird like that lol.

There were several for sale on the internet ranging from $15 (so old and worn that you could hardly see what it said) to $45. I hope I've not brought this to the attention of those who might start stripping them from our Jeeps for resale.

Yes they have omitted the hood prop on all KK also. The hood prop is useless like a vice president. There also is no transmission dipstick

I was on the phone with the dealership about the trail rating itself. I called to inquire about obtaining skid plates. The guy on the phone asked if my Jeep was Trail Rated, to which I replied that it had the medallion on one side, so yes. He told me that meant I already had skid plates, they were part of the trail rating. I assured him he was sadly mistaken, Upon running my VIN he saw that I didn't have the plates. To say he was flabbergasted was an understatement. He chalked it up to Chrysler being cheap.

Not to thread-jack, but how, should I pursue this?

My 2010 Liberty Renegade's window sticker listed no options installed by the factory. The Renegade's standard feature list included a long list: Select-Shift transfer case, 4-WD, Skid Plates, etc. There were no items not on the Renegade that would be available on the Sport as optional. (the Renegede seems to be a full dressed Sport).
