OK, here are the pictures, YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE WATER WAS POURING DOWN FROM THE MIDDLE AND THE STRAP WAS IN THE WATER...(there is no drain) what is really bad......the last picture is the rear strap that was holding the tank just above the road......if you religously wash your truck underneath you better take a look...OH..the lines you see are the fuel lines and the brake lines!!!!

How are you making out with Dodge. Are they going to honor their rust warranty?

Chrysler said NO NADA, the rust through warranty only covers panels and technically its not a panel, they couldnt get me the brackets to do it myself either,the brackets look like 2 crossmembers with the brackets for the straps on the ends, so I will be using stainless plate and a tig welder to make my own, stronger and rust resistant.

Ill have to check mine the weekend, seeing how my truck nearly has 230,000km and I am located on an Island surrounded my salt water, my truck is probably more prone to rusting. Which is indicated by the bubbling paint on the tailgate corner and the rust spots on the forward corner of the box

Its worth a look.....I am having to make some brackets and mig them in.since the brackets themselves are on 2crossmembers that are welded in from the factory, and so far I cant just buy the whole crossmembers, no one can find them...

File a complaint with the Gov. Maybe we can get a recall.

Gas tanks falling off may be a concern.

I thought these things were hybrids, so gas tanks were optional to get better fuel economy.

Hmm, that's the first post on this issue I've seen and makes you wonder how widespread it is on older ones like the 2009/10, especially those driven up North in winter conditions. Many, that's just piss poor for that to happen on a truck that quite frankly isn't that old. Will give mine a look later today and see how she looks.
