Cummins 6.7 have always weighed that much they are cast iron block and cylinder heads...That's why UPS has thousands of the with 500,000 miles on them...

My truck is a 2009 model,I purchased it new from a very small hometown Dodge dealer...I got the recall 2 years ago on the steering problem but I never experienced the so called death wobble problem myself, my truck had 25000 miles on it at the time...I took it to my dealer and they performed the required work on the truck...He installed a new tie rod in the steering system,he showed me the difference and the new tie rod appeared to be bigger in diameter...The truck now has 36000 miles on it and has never been back to the dealer for anything other then oil and transmission fluid changes...

Interestingly enough there never seems to be any mention of the GMs with their self destructing ignition- a recall that SHOULD have happened a decade ago and resulted in many deaths and injuries.

Both company's went belly up so their improvement or lack there of is a result of our billions of bailout dollars.

Does that mean the Dodge recall is not merited?

It absolutely is. In fact their less than stellar track record up to 2011/2012 is the only reason I drove a Ford which had its own grab bag of annoying issues and recalls that were not repaired or dealt with correctly which led to an engine failure at 69k.

My comment was a little knee-jerk. Not being brand loyal. The forums are flooded with stories of this buy back (which is actually a surprisingly small number of vehicles) and all of the GM fan boys jump all over it howling about the fact that FRC is screwing the world, yet the fact that the ONLY reason GM is now cooperating with NHSTA and recalling vehicles for the problems is because they got caught trying to sweep it under the rug. Had they not, I am very certain they would still be happily chugging along allowing loss of life and limb to save a few bucks. After my last (and final) go around with GM a couple years back with my wifes ticking time bomb, I have nothing but contempt for their shady business practices.
