Hmm, there have been a good number of threads that basically you should have got the Mopar one as the aftermarket ones don't last. You can also order Mopar ones online for mid $300s. I would have bought the Mopar one online and take it to your local mechanic.
Hopefully yours does.

This might just be the stalker in me but that looks like you're at a sheetz?

Also, good choice on the duratracs, a good set of at tires in the snow will surprise anyone..

Went to the dealership, got a new rear suspension, rear driver side blinker, and a new steering column. All under warranty.
