Default Fuel Pump Fail

Well after 26 months and 37,000 miles of pure enjoyment of my Ram, No problems,no complaints.... The first indication something was wrong was about a week earlier, the fuel gauge was acting a little weird, fluctuating on ocassion.... Then It happened. Truck Shut down, DEAD! while making a turn at an intersection. Luckly I was able to roll out of traffic into a gas station. No warning lights, buzzers, nuthin. After trying to restart a few times had to call the tow truck.
Had it towed to the local dealer, he said he will check it out. "37,000 is 1 thousand out of warranty", so he say's. Now I gettig pissed. After dropping the fuel tank they found that the Fuel pump module had "come apart"??? and of course he had never seen that before.
It was replaced under Emissions Warranty. so no cost to me.

I have done a little research and found this has happend to others.

My advice to anyone with a gas gauge acting weird, Take it in and get it checked out. It maybe a prelude to a module failure.
