I have a 200 Dodge Durango 2 wheel drive with 54000 miles and my family were at a stop light in joplin mo, I went to take off and before I went 3 inches the driveshaft started hitting the bottom of the truck and ground. I stopped engine and got out to see what happened thinking a ujoint broke, no chance, the pinnion broke in half. Upon closer investigation you could see what appears to be a bubble in the center of pinnion shaft where it wasnt cast properly weakening until it broke. After it broke the truck wouldnt move forward ( locked up ) just pushable backwards.if I was going down the road 65 mph and it broke it could of killed us all not to mention a 7 mth old daughter stuck there for 4.5 hrs and now sick. Im a ase master certified tech with over 27 yrs experience. This is the last Dodge ill buy and ill never recomend anyone else to buy Dodge either. After the new rearend gets in it im trading it off for a Chevrolet.
