I had the front end go on my truck. It didnt always dis-engage from 4x4. Lucky I did engage it when I did and found the issue as I just squeaked in under the warranty period. Otherwise no issues that I am aware of. I will be interested to see who says what though.
60K Miles on mine up here in the "Frozen Tundra" aka Saskatchewan, Canada. Pretty much use the 4x4 daily all winter long due to snow and icy conditions. General maintenance is the key. No major issues at all...weirdest thing on the 5.7's is changing the oil. I'll let someone else chime in on that one though
Seriously though they are great trucks...I like the style and feel of the truck on the road...it tows really well and there a ton of ways to modify the truck to fit your driving style/habits.
You are correct on the 4x4 trucks having a recall... I had mine done at 4000 miles no biggy.. The pumps went out super early though... I think mainly cuz my truck was sitting 200 days before I bought it... That was under warranty too... I hope nothing else because I don't plan on putting that many miles on it... I need to go off roading more lol... Buy one and have fun...
