Vehicles Affected
NHTSA Campaign #
Vehicle description: Gasoline and diesel engine pickup trucks equipped with 6" and 8" beds manufactured from January 5, 1998 through March 21, 1999, do not not fully satisfy the post crash test static rollover requirements of FMVSS no. 301, "fuel system integrity." Six attachment bolts (M12 bolts) may have been damaged during the 30 mph front barrier test allowing the bolts to shift or become detached, resulting in fuel spillage.
Dealers will augment the box-to-chassis attachment by installing box-to-chassis retaining cables.
