    Not a good way to start off the day. Good thing this happened while i was just moving trailers around my shop. Who knows what the outcome could have been if i would have been on the road pulling my tractor or dumptrailer. The bracket holding the steering linkage broke and tie rod broke off the driver side wheel. Now my wife understands why i need a spare work truck. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'd hate to be on a freeway when that happens. Nice truck.

    Did the dealer tell you that? When it happened on my Magnum at 20,000 miles I was told it is wearable part and not covered. needless to say I was some kind of POed.
