Okay, the dealership just called and confirmed the issue is OAT coolant reacting with sulphur-cured hoses, and the solution is to change the hoses and coolant. However, the hoses aren't available yet. They did say that it was okay to drive and won't cause any issue besides the smell. The smell is kind of a big deal for me though, since I don't want it to work it's way into the interior of the truck and smell that way forever. My wife is pregnant, and besides the possible chemical reaction issues, she REALLY doesn't like the smell. It took a lot of convincing for her to allow me to buy a new truck, and now neither of us is very happy with the purchase. Hopefully Chrysler makes this right, and does it quickly.
