I tried to get the scissors jack from under the passenger seat. The handled screw that screws it to the floor would not turn and the jack couldn't be removed. I tried to clean the threads that protrude through the truck's floor, to no avail (fine threads). After removing it later with pliers, I ran a thread die over it, reinstalled it, and painted it.

A recall is definitely in order here for the cabin air blend door breaking, 2006 through 2002 models have had a large number of complaints filed and in 2006 had the most filed yet in 2007 zero complaints filed for this problem, let me explain why. I contacted daimler Chrysler filed a complaint and got nowhere, they just don't care about their bad design, or stand behind their product!! I will never buy a product from them again. The air box has an opening with one tab protruding out so when the blend door closes it stops at the tab, well the tab isn't strong enough to receive the impact of the door slamming it and breaks off thus jamming closed or falling off, the engineers at delmar Chrysler figured this out and engendered a new box with two tabs so it wont break yet the service dept at the dealers keep replacing the doors and not the entire box (because it's a bigger more expensive job) and that's why some people have had it fixed several times, because they are not fixing it correctly so in turn you then are out of warranty and now it cost the consumer to fix this expensive poorly engineered box that they know is a design flaw.sad, very sad. Daimler Chrysler put this newly designed box in their 2007 and newer models and have not one complaint, so why wont they recall these bad design boxes and broken blend doors (which are the number one biggest problem with the 2006 trucks) and put their newly engineered boxes-blend doors in the trucks at their expense not the consumer, delmer Chrysler knows they have a bad design and still wont own up to it, we the consumer need to flood their phones until they fix this poorly engineered very expensive problem that they created until they recall it. This problem is a safety issue because you cannot control where the air flow is going like the windshield for visibility in foggy or snowy conditions, forced to pul over cant see, thank you in advance for taking the time and effort putting pressure on them to correct their mistake.
