tombill is on a distinguished road

mine (2010) 2wd is in the dealers shop now for the recall. The pinion seal was leaking and when I replaced it I noticed the pinion nut was very loose. I replaced the seal, snugged up the pinion nut and hauled ass to the dealer for the recall. Got a call last nite that they are replacing the ring and pinion gears, when they can get the parts, but cautioned me that the replacement of the ring and pinion gears is a temporary fix until Chrysler decides what to do about the problem. Then when "parts are available" I have to take it back in and do this all over again. 3 days with the truck, what a PITA!! Apparently, it is not just a missing dab of Loctite that is causing the problems. Anyone else know what the true fix to this nonsense is? Has anyone called Chrysler and gotten an honest answer yet? Thanks
