    If the chrome aftermarket cap was the same size as an original, it wouldn't be SO bad but, I'm going to like the painted one much better. Kind of blends in instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

    Now,,,,,,,,if it would ever warm the bleep up, I could get to the painting.

    I think the painted cap looks better too.

    Not sure what MOPAR was thinking when they designed it so low on the body. Seems like designers were still figuring things out after the long history of bumper fillers.

    Yeah, 79-80 was the plastic cap. I've also always preferred that they blend in.

    It would be nice if the filler was higher up. Twenty or thirty years ago it didn't bother me but now,,,,,,,,well,,,,,,,,,,I'm not exactly 25 years old anymore, lol. Used to go up the stairs in 2 seconds flat, now,,,,,,it takes substantially longer. I really do NOT like this getting old crap at all, not one little bit.
