I recognize the difference in the cables is very common. Have actually seen that in a few threads. Not sure if the is a design done ~ above purpose. Maybe a primary and second support whereby one is sufficient for the aluminum tailgate, however if load increases, then it might stretch and also the an additional cable will be utilize. Or, it might be a flaw, yet I can"t see exactly how they can not have actually seen this (Ram cares watches these) and then make the convey i.e. Use all lefts until the new ones room done correctly. They space cheap and easy to fix. But I am simply speculating.As far as the tailgate latching and different hinge distances, that IS a problem for you and also you should gain it addressed. Imagine if you have actually lumber on the tailgate and only one hinge catches and it lets go. Liability. Have your dealer fix it. If your behind passenger door did not latch, would they still let you (and junior) drive down the highway in it. Ns think not!
