2005 Dodge Pickup 5.7L Eng R1500



Reference Number(s): RC-P77-15, Date of Issue: June, 2015


2005 (DR) Dodge RAM Truck (1500 series)


2005 (DR) Dodge RAM Truck (1500 series)

NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a 9.25 rear axle (sales code DRB ).

IMPORTANT: Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer used vehicle inventory. Dealers should complete this recall service on these vehicles before retail delivery. Dealers should also perform this recall on vehicles in for service. Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.


The rear axle pinion nut on about 256,000 of the above vehicles may have been built without an adhesive patch on the pinion nut threads. The lack of this adhesive patch could allow the rear axle pinion nut to loosen and/or the rear driveshaft to separate from the rear axle. A loose pinion nut could cause the rear axle to seize and a separated driveshaft could cause a loss of motive power. Either situation could cause a crash without warning.


The rear axle pinion nut must be checked for looseness. Rear axles found with a loose pinion nut and/or a seized up axle assembly must be reconditioned. Axles found with a pinion nut that has not loosened will have a pinion nut retainer installed.


Dealers should attempt to minimize customer inconvenience by placing the owner in a loaner vehicle if inspection determines that the rear axle requires reconditioning and the vehicle must be held overnight.



Part Number



Rear Axle Retainer Package

Each package contains the following components:





Retainer, Pinion Nut


Bolt, Hex Head Flange Locking


Bit, Hex (3/32")

Each dealer to whom vehicles in the recall were assigned will receive enough Rear Axle Retaining Packages to service about 20% of those vehicles
