Finally...A Recall for the rear diff pinion nut!
I had this sent to my email. Don't think mine is affected since my build date was 1/2010. Has anyones pinion nut come loose out of this build cycle (July 1, 2009 to November 30, 2009)?

Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2010, Ram 1500 and Dodge Dakota trucks, manufactured from July 1, 2009, through November 30, 2009, because a rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to a lack of adhesive.
If the rear axle pinion nut loosens, the axle can lock up and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or a vehicle crash with little warning.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2012. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
Chrysler's recall campaign number is M34. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
I see that the NHTSA National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety had to get involved, for it be called a Safety issue
It is about time !!
Fantastic. A big issue that is finally getting taken care of. Going to walk outside and have a look at my build date just because I'm curious...
Edit: My build date is 07/09. Hmm...
Glad this is finally being taken care of. I can rest a bit easier now since my Build date was March 19 2010. I checked and there is no recall listed against my VIN for this issue. You guys with that build date range should see it come up when checked against your VINs. Here is the link to check. https://www.moparownercenter.com/oc/...nersLogin.aspx
Looks like I'm part of the recall.
11/09 here. :sad:
Do not take this lightly. There is not much of a warning before it happens. I think the recall is to little to late. Especially since I am stuck with paying for a rental vehicle.
We both share the same Build date...:4-dontknow:
so i checked my build date. 05-10 so i guess im outside of the recall. and i never hit on the recall when i entered my VIN.
hopefully they put in this pinion nut retainer when they replaced my rear end...
