    I contacted a company who makes engine "dress up" kits.
    They have several different colors. I'm currently test fitting some of these caps for the 3.7L engine. So far most of the caps fit and i'm trying to talk to them about making caps for some other engine components. Would anyone be interested in buying these kits if they can make a complete kit for the 3.7L?? I think if i got others who would be interested in this, then they may just make more than one kit.

    I've been emailing Alex who works for the conpany. Haven't really got a answer on whether or not they'll make a "kit" for the Nitro's and Libberty's.
    But i do have a list of the part numbers that will work for both if anyone is intrested in buying?
    It's a bit pricey but it's good quality.
    It cost more for paint, engraving, etc...
    The cheapest is bare aluminum with no engraving. And even at that it's still a bit pricey.
    I personally may end up buying piece by piece at a time each pay day...

    I tried painting one of the stock caps and didn't like it at all, so I'm definitely interested!

    Here are the part numbers. On some of the parts you have to list the vehicle and year. (If im not mistaking, these are everything needed that fit) FYI the A/C port caps are slightly loose. If you want i would put some glue on the top of the OEM cap then put this cap over it to hold it. Maybe even wrap something around the OEM cap for a more snug fit.
    They cal all be customized if im not mistaking and they come in different colors.
    I'm going to be buying piece by piece more than likely :\

    •Power Steering Cap (3042) 03-05 Neon
    •Oil Dip Stick Handle (30012)
    •Coolant Over-Flow/ reservoir (3033) 08-17
    •Oil Cap (3008) 06-13 Pentastar 3.6L
    •Washer Fluid reservoir (30020) 08 Ram 1500
    •A/C Port (30013) 04-17 Ram 1500
    •Brake Fluid reservoir cap (3023) 2" cap (2in cap)
    •Radiator Cap (30011) 14' Dodge Durango

    I was told most of these caps for the ram will fit, but some parts would have to be swaped/switched. If you contact them ask for Alex and tell him that Patrick had contacted him about these items and the kit below in the link. He might be able to help you out.
