Chrysler is recalling 447,985 model year 2012-2021 RAM 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis, 4500 Cab Chassis and 5500 Cab Chassis vehicles.

Incorrect information in the service and owner's manuals may cause the flanged lug nuts to be over-tightened, which could result in a broken wheel stud and possible wheel separation.

Wheel separation can cause a vehicle crash.

What to do

Dealers will update the torque specification in the owner's manual and other published service documents.

Dealers will also inspect the vehicle's wheel studs, replacing them -- if necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 16, 2021. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.

Chrysler's numbers for this recall are Y26 and Y36.
