 Description of the problemDriving at approximately 40 mph in heavy traffic slowed by road construction a grinding noise started at the rear end of the truck. Approximately 5 seconds later and a loud pop the truck began shaking . I veered to the shoulder of the road barely getting it off the road . Looking under the truck found the driveshaft separated from the differential with the u joint a yoke still attached to the driveshaft . I had the truck towed to my residence on a rollback tow truck because the rear end was locked up. I searched online for anyone that might had this happen to them and found a recall from chrysler for this very same problem. I contacted a local dealer who told me my vehicle had no recalls on it . I also contacted chrysler corp who told me the same thing . I need this truck back on the road as soon as possible but would like to know if this is a defect and their recall should include my truck . Thanks
