In local newspaper:
DETROIT – Chrysler is recalling nearly 257,000 older Ram pickup trucks because the rear axle can seize or the drive shaft can fall off.

The recall covers Ram 1500 pickups from the 2005 model year.

Chrysler says in documents posted Friday by U.S. safety regulators that the rear-axle pinion nut can come loose. That can cause problems that make the trucks spin out of control.

The recall comes after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that began in June.

The agency found 15 complaints, including seven drivers who reported that the wheels locked at speeds over 50 miles per hour. At the time, no crashes or injuries were reported.

Dealers will install a fix at no cost to owners. The recall will begin in February.

Wonder why the 04 trucks aren't included? Too old?

I had my whole axle replaced last year with a rebuilt jasper, so i don't think it matters anyway...

This probably won't apply to anyone who is geared either

Wonder if it applies if you paid in the past to get it fixed already. Be nice to get recompensated.

Isn't there supposed to be a recall for the airbag problem also? My airbag light is on all the time.
