Trailhawk Hood Decal Ripping

I have 6,000 miles on my Trailhawk and I noticed there are little tears in the hood decal (factory installed, came on the truck). I assume they are from everyday highway driving but I would think it should be able to withstand it?

Do you think I would have any luck replacing it under warranty or am I on my own to order a custom one (I would like the red trim)?

EDIT: Doesn't seem to let me embed an image from Dropbox, this link should show you what I'm talking about:

Thanks

IMO that should be covered under the bumper to bumper. I'd cause a stink if it only has 6k miles on it.

Actually once I got the image to open.... I looks like you might of snagged it on something or maybe caught some debris on the high way which I don't think the warranty will cover. Wouldn't hurt to ask though!

It looks like it got hit. Mine has chipped away due to rocks.

looks like a large rock or rocks got that, I will try with warranty as its not a very old truck... so give it a whirl, if not go for the red pin stripe one, that looks awesome... wish they would do that as standard

Trailhawk Hood Decal Ripping

It's just a vinyl decal, shouldn't be too expensive to replace worst case.

I think I've seen the decals for around 50$ which seems a bit high for a sticker.

I couldn't bring the picture up, so I can't be sure how you will fare by taking it to a dealer. The usual method is for the dealer to take a picture of the damage and send it to FCA for approval or no approval of replacement under warranty. (edit) I went back and did see the picture---does look like something may have hit it, but I still would let a dealer look at it anyhow.
