2013 dodge ram 1500 axle question
Do the 2013 rams have the rear axle recall that the older 4th gen rams had? Has anyone had trouble with the zf axles in there rams? Is the rear axle in the 2013 rams different than older years?

Afaik it was 2009-2011 trucks that were subject to the recall. Even then they didn't all grenade by any means. My 09 has lots of hard miles on it, still original unit.

But I saw the recall was from 09-12. I just got a 13 and was wondering if they fixed the issue

Yes they use a ZF rear now, I believe that solved the issue

Really? I wish someone else would chime in so I would know for sure

Anyone know for sure if the 2013s are fixed

What do you mean by fixed?

ZF axles have been used since 2011. The recall was not for the axle but for the pinion nut. Something about not having a Loctite type product on it allowing it to back off. I'm sure they have fixed this problem for 2013

Oh ok I wish someone would chime in and let me know for sure
