We have 07 & 08 mega cabs at work & one of our guys was driving on the interstate going 75 mph & the driveshaft fell along with the transfer case pivoting in the ground raising the rear tires off the ground. Luckily he didn't flip. I used to have a picture but it is on my old phone.

I wonder why no one has posted a photo of the damaged part? ..makes one think.
I had issues of mine overheating on a trip while towing 70% of max. load. The dealer would not honor the warrenty on my 1 year old truck with 7000 miles on it. I had to pay the dealer $170 to get my truck back and continue out trip. Go Dodge, and I know I could sue them but I want to pick my battles.

Here is a pic of what my drive shaft looked like on the ground after it fell of and caused my rear end to seize up at 20mph in the middle of an intersection.

+rep for the pic of the broke driveshaft-----------I was hoping to see more of the damaged caused from this issue. Like a loose, broken or ceased nut, gear damage after the diff cover was removed, close-up photo of the axle.

Yeah, I wish I would have had the presence of mind to take more pictures. Unfortunately, I was pissed and people were honking at me to move my truck out of the intersection (which of course wouldn't move even trying to use 4 wheel to drag my back end). Oh well, I like to say next time I will make sure and get more pictures but I am hoping there is no next time!

Same here.... no problems since. (knock on wood) I wish Dodge would do something to fix the issue. Makes me nervous when I think about families driving 60+ mph on the freeway and this happening. I am pretty sure, with the way my rear end froze up, that I would have flipped if I was going 60+.
