I'm not sure if this is good or not...

It's good that they're fixing a known problem, it's bad that there is a need to do so.
I'll be checking mine out too see if I'm included

Well there you have it. 09-12 Ram trucks are now in the recall. That should help a lot of the members on here that I have read about having issues with their rear axle.

"Report Receipt Date: FEB 06, 2013
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V038000
Component(s): POWER TRAIN
All Products Associated with this Recall
Details
2 Associated Documents
Manufacturer: Chrysler Group LLC

SUMMARY:
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Ram 1500 trucks manufactured from February 27, 2008, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through October 20, 2011; model year 2009-2011 Dodge Dakota trucks manufactured from February 27, 2007, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through September 30, 2011; model year 2009 Chrysler Aspen trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008; and model year 2009 Dodge Durango trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008. The rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to an undersized pinion spline that can allow relative motion between the nut and companion flange.

CONSEQUENCE:
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.

REMEDY:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during March 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.

NOTES:
This campaign is an expansion of a recall campaign 12V-474. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N08. 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.
