Ring and Pinion Gears

Anyone had their Ring and Pinion Gears go early on? I don't even have 2000 miles and mine are gone. High pitched whine starting at 40mph getting worse the faster you go.
I personally get the feeling some boob forgot to fill the rear differential. There's been no leaks.
Wouldn't be so bad but the parts are on national backorder. No availability till next month!
I've been told not to worry about it and keep driving but......
I'm not feeling real safe right now.

I've seen em go pretty quick if they are not set up right. If I was you I'd tell them to pull a rear axle out of a truck on the lot and put it in yours. 2k is pretty crappy to have on your p/u and let it sit for a month. Although it is under warranty if you drive it and it breaks it's there problem not yours.

Dont you have a brand new 08?? I would be in the service dept, showroom and wherever there are customs standing around raising some serious cane untill they fixed it today and not a month from now. That is just preposterous. (My $.50 cent word for the day) Tell them that you not gonna pay this months note since your money is on national backorder and see what they say then. They will say you still have to pay. Then tell them they still have to fix it today. I used to have a 95 Dodge (I know I know) that the rear end locked up at 80 MPH goin down the interstate and thank God Im still here but it was a not so fun ride. The Dodge dealership ordered the whole axle assembly because the gears were on back order. MAybe you can ask the dealership about this option.

Dropped it off this morning. The noise had been getting worse over the weekend and I just did not feel safe anymore with it under load. I'll take it back when it's fixed. Not willing to take anymore chances with myself or other vehicles.
once I hear back from them later this week I'll decide whether I need to get ugly or not. Don't care to burn any bridges just yet since I plan on having this thing a long time.

This does happen, I tell my customers not to tow anything for 500 miles after a gear swap. I have had 2 not listen and I had to tear them back apart. Even though it was there stupidty I still covered it, but any diff shop will tell you the samething. The heat is incrediable as they breakin and the added stress just kills the diff.

Anywho I would be in the service Dept also raising some he.....LL

I believe the manual reccomended 1500 miles before the first tow. (Which is what I followed) Even then, it's not like I'm towing a house! It's just a 20ft enclosed race trailer with a MINI inside. (Maybe 8000lbs)
Can't wait to get the truck back. Miss it and I'm looking forward to our trip up north in August. Truck rides and handles great and hate for this minor problem to be screwing up the experience.
