As a state trooper, I have had a rancher explain to me that three of his 2002 Dodge 4X4 trucks have had the transfer case and drive axle "explode". one incident sent a part through the floorboard of the truck into the cab. Could these incidents be associated with the June 13, 2002 recall on brakes? the conversation came up when I told the rancher of my newly purchased Dodge pick-up truck. Thank you.
