Recall search

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchVehicles I am sorry I couldn't find anything on gas straps except another forum where someone mixed up the Durango's recalls with his Cherokee. But here is the site to search recalls that I use. Wish I could have helped.

With one good strap and a properly mounted skid plate, the tank should be fine for one more week.

When I replaced my fuel pump my straps literally fell into pieces when I removed them. Grabbed some new ones at Advance Auto immediately.
