I went to change my oil today and heard lots of water inside of my hood . When I raised it up water would run out where the top and bottom sections had a rolled seam. Did anyone else have this issue and how did you fix it? It may have leaked into the hood around the 2500 labels on each side of the hood..

I‘ve heard that the hood badges will hold water but I haven’t heard about it being enough to run out like you’re describing . I think someone put clear silicone around the hood emblems to keep the water out .

We certainly understand why this would be concerning. If you are not able to determine a solution based on suggestions from fellow forum members and you decide to address this with your Ram dealer, please be sure to follow up with us via private message. We would be more than willing to escalate your situation to a specialist who can work alongside you and your dealer while your truck is in service.

Mark,
I took the truck to the dealer and they said all is ok.. the water in the hood will not rust..
He raised the hood and water poured out of the corners of the hood...
I can’t believe I am the only one with this issue.. It appears water is leaking around the 2500 badges on the hood and two days after a rain water is still in the hood and will not drain until you open the hood..

I have the same issue on my 2019 bighorn 2500. Did they give you any reason as to why it wouldn’t rust?

I'm having the same issue. I'm so much worried about rust as I am ice in the winter. It may expand and deform the hood.
