 Description of the problemWhile my dealership has taken care of my 3 issues here, i want to let folks know: front end steering. 2 yrs after purchase, i started to have front end steering shimmy. The first time, the tie rod became loose, and was replaced by the dealership. 2nd time, i was backing out of my driveway, (loose sand) and the tie rod end literally snapped in 2, rendering the steering useless. Reading the ladies story about her husband being ticketed for falling asleep when i have had it happen to my truck i thought i needed to speak out. Drive line issue: the support bearing on the drive shaft, went while driving with out notice. Luckily i was driving down my drive way which is about 500 feet long and wasn't going but about 15 mph. It had to be towed in and was covered under warranty. I love my truck and currently have 136k miles on it. The fuel mileage wasn't impressive but minor mods have brought it closer to 20 mpg when empty. I think i still have pictures of both the snapped tie rod and when it was wore out. Luckily i wasn't going fast when the snap happened, but the sand shouldn't have torqued the tie rod so hard to snap it when backing out of the drive way.
