Pinion Bearing failure is a common problem on Dodge 1500 Pick-up Trucks, specially if the Gear Oil is not changed at the recommended intervals set by the Manufacturer. You have to realize that there is no filter in the differential, and any metal particles will circulate in the gear oil affecting all the moving parts.
Another way to extend the life of the Differential components on these trucks is to Change the Differential oil after the initial break-in period for new trucks, which is between 3,000 and 5,000 miles.
