Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 30,300 miles
I was sitting at a red stop light. When the light turned green I released my foot from the brake and put my foot on the gas pedal. At that time I heard a loud boom and the truck shook as if we were hit from behind. We were not hit. The truck would run, but would not drive when it was in gear. My truck was towed to the local dealership and it was determine the rear pinion shaft snapped in half.
