no problems

Apparently there is an additive that needs to be added to some of the 1500's.

GOOD LUCK

I am not to sure to what extent the recall is , but call dodge give them your last 8 digits of your vin and see if you need to bring it in. I would just schedule an appointment and go ahead and tell them to inspect

The problem is that some diffs were not fully filled and could be up to 13 ounces or so low. The additive is for LSD rear ends.

I have the 3:55 rear end and they said mine needed the additive. Some are overheating and the additive supposedly resolves the issue. She said one customer had his rear end get so hot while towing a camper that the paint started flaking off. Now that is pretty darn hot!

I'm surprised that the sensor on that rear end, did not set off a code & check engine light, maybe even shut the truck off
