Ram Recalls Heavy Duty Pickups Over Transfer Case Issues

Ram is bringing back a number of its heavy duty pickup trucks over transfer case output shaft fractures. 

The 2016 Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 are all affected by the recall, with 889 units involved in total. The issue is the output shaft from the transfer case can fracture. The supplier of the shaft has since investigated and changed it process to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Ram first had a customer report the issue in October of 2016, while two further customers experienced the fracture in April of 2016.

All of the affected trucks will be outfitted with a brand new transfer case that was made using the new process.
