Default And just when i think i have alll the bug's out.

well as soon as i think i have my truck right.....


the engine blow's up...

well it still runs just sound;s like the bearing's are rattling
.

drained oil and there are shavings in it....

i have had a ton of problems with it since i got it. purchased it with like 14k on it and at 25k the rearend basically exploded. then at 37k both hubs went out... and have consantly been going out since.. and at 44k the transmisson started acting up. and now at 67982 the engine has gave out...

It won't have the bumper to bumper, but it should still have the drivetrain warranty. I'm wondering wth the previous owner did to that thing to destroy all those components. Have you made any modifications to the vehicle yourself our any apparent mods from the previous owner?

The whole truck sounds like it was abused. Engine, transmission, differential, and hub issues. All sounds like abuse.

The Lifetime Drive train Warranty only stays in effect with the original owner

read question # 8, in fact read the whole Q & A
http://www.chrysler.com/en/lifetime_...ranty/faq.html

The dealership may have mentioned warranty options to you when you made your purchase

Good Luck
