My dealer said the same thing. Chrysler, according to them, will only send out the parts about every 2 weeks. I am waiting for a call from them. Gotta wonder why, if they did a voluntary recall, would they not have the parts readily available?

I think they don't have the parts yet because they really haven't notified owners. I think we only know because of this forum so we're getting a jump start.

Has anyone gotten a notice?

Too bad you guys aren't closer, my dealer said he had like 80 of the kits in stock.

I was called last week by a Chrysler rep. He told me of the recall, explained it, and gave me a number to call if I encounter any problems.

Now that everyone is starting to get their FIX heheh

I am curious, what is it that they actually replaced or modified on both the

Back flow restrictor & the reason for needing to over fill the rear ends

I had read that the fill/inspection plug on some vehicles was in the driveshaft side of the housing & not in the rear cover.
Was that fill hole placement to LOW?? & the placement didn't allow fluid to get out to the axle bearings? Is that why they had to put fluid in through the vent? Or was there a different reason?
Any one that had this fixed, take a photo of the fix??

I never could figure out why they just didn't put a fill/inspection hole in the rear cover, & a DRAIN PLUG also in that cover w/ a magnetic plug to catch metal filings or chunks. Then they wouldn't have to pull that cover just to drain the fluid every 20,000 miles or so, unless they see metal pieces on the plug

Default Recalls..

After reading about all these recalls, I consider myself lucky so far. Ran my VIN number and nothing came up. My truck was built in Feb., and the dealer only had it about a month before I bought it. They were selling a bunch of the Rams, so not many were sitting there for long.
