My truck is in the recall. Gotta love it. No parts until March (spoke to my dealer) but no compensation either. My welds looked ok but who knows. Dealer suggested not driving it.....I said like until March? How about I not make the payments until March as well.

Dufus.

I going to try another dealer this week and I hope that they can give me better news, I really wanted the 6.4L but when I bought mine I was afraid to get one because that they just came out.

Did another self inspection today after some driving in wet conditions and I am seeing evidence of bad welds on mine. I am going in for the "official" review the 7th and I am determined that mine will be subject to re-welding .

There are several spots where surface rust is present and paint chipping from the welds in straight lines. I will post my results after inspection, but I am really curious who is going to weld the bracket on and when?

Based on the TSB my entire front axle is coming off...guess I better hold off on the alignment check...

I know that some weld have to be a class 1 weld which anybody and everybody is not license to do that kind of weld, and I can see that they might be a problem if this is the case.

There is a good 3rd generation shop around me and I know a few guys that have been doing it for 30 plus years. If I should need it I will vet the dealer on who is doing it as I have a good relationship with them.

That is ridiculous... what is the part they are replacing? Do they need to completely replace the trackbar, they can't simply re-weld the original? I would be very upset if I were you. I have a 2000 mile round trip to Florida planned in February... I would be making Ram give me a loaner 2500 diesel or better if they didn't fix it in time.

I have a 2015, only recall is the airbag one. I got the letter about a week or two ago. Haven't had time to bring it in yet.

No replacing just a welding job, check here to read all about it. Recall R46 / NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V-541 - Dodge Cummins Diesel Forum
