If your 2012 Ram 1500 was assembled before the 20th of Oct 2011

"Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge."

I am assuming its a 1hr job, but Ramtech could probably give a more precise time frame for installation of the so called adhesive patch "pinion nut retainer".
