Im just trying to be clear on your question. Your coolant dipstick should be inside of the overflow bottle right under the cap is yours missing it?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I did remove the dipstick as to add some antifreeze coolant to the reservoir, in the meantime I miss placed the dipstick and lost it. So, Yes, you are right Dave, my truck is now missing the overflow reservoir dipstick (indicator). Thank you Dave.

Are you asking where to find a new dipstick or looking for a price for a new one?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I am hoping Dave, that you could direct me to a place where I might find a new dipstick or a replacement (new or used) dipstick. I am really not concerned about price as I do have an idea of how much it might cost.

I tried looking for you at some aftermarket places but came up with nothing. Your best bet will be to try the dodge dealer of your choice or a salvage yard for a used one.
