On certain trucks, the fuel tank may move forward in a frontal impact, possibly damaging the fuel delivery module and allowing fuel to spill.

The welded lift blocks may compress due to over tightening of the u-bolts or excess vehicle payloads, reducing the clamping force of the u-bolts.

This recall is scheduled to begin on April 16, 2008. The Truxxx recall number is 08-01BLK.
