    So I've had my truck about a year now, it's been in the shop a dozen times with from end issues.
    It has 11,*** miles and
    I've had a dead battery
    Cracked 4 shock mounts
    Tore and stearing pump boot
    Had to have the front realigned
    And a few other minor issues

    I was wondering if anyone has had this many problems with a brand new truck.
    And who thinks I could go to an attorney and get it claimed as lemon

    I've got an '08 with 97,*** miles and it's never been in the shop.

    I'm going to replace the battery soon, just as a preventative measure.

    I have to agree the symptoms sound this way. Unless the OP bought the truck as a low mileage pre-owned, and the previous owner did. :facepalm:

    Either way, these don't sound like common issues that one gets from even some moderate off roading and normal driving.

    My 12 has close to 20k and I have had none of those problems. Just oil changes and a sensor that went bad

    73,000 on my 2012 OR DCSB and the only problem I have even remotely noticed was the plastic guts in the shifter console got a little tangled one time. I need to replace it but it works fine after forcing it through the gears.

    60,000 on my 08. Only oil changes and a blower motor.

    If you drive it off a cliff those things can happen.:eek:
