 Description of the problemWhile driving vehicle i heard occasional scraping noise and had other vehicles flash lights at me. I pulled off the road in the 1st safe area and found front of fuel tank hanging down approximately 8 inches and the front retaining strap disconnected. I thought the strap had disconnected but upon further inspection by my mechanic found that the frame was rotted through where the strap attaches. Mechanic states that i was lucky not to lose the tank, poor design and that this should not happen to a 6. 5 year old truck. I contacted dealer and was told it was not covered by warranty. Suggested i contact chrysler. Chrysler says they cannot help even though obvious safety concern. My ram 1500 is my every day vehicle. I do not use it for work or plow with it. Truck has been well cared for. Design needs to be investigated.
