I just got off the phone with Chrysler Canada and they said they havent heard much about this problem and that if there is a recall they will send me a notice in the mail..............everyone at some point is going to have this problem, why do both parties play dumb about it?

Reading through this Ive seen that lots of people in the USA have got it done under a recall, why is Canada not doing it??
From what I was told there is no Recall on this issue. Just a service bulletin that tells the dealership how to fix the problem. I have no warranty on my truck so I am doing the repairs myself in the driveway. Made some calls today to a couple of different parts stores and the cheapest place to get a new exhaust manifold gasket was the dodge dealer. I ordered some new Metric 8mm x1.25 x 45mm allen head bolts from Fastenal today. At 12.9 hardness I hope they do the trick. Just have to wait till Saturday for some daylight to drill and tap the bolt that broke off flush in my cylinder head. Will try and post some pics later.
