Summary: Jerr-Dan is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 50 Ton Heavy-Duty Wrecker vehicles manufactured April 23, 2009, through July 31, 2012. The mounting hardware used to attach the front or middle of the wrecker frame to the truck chassis may become loose or fracture.
Consequence: If the hardware becomes loose or fractured, the wrecker frame could partially detach from the chassis frame, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
Remedy: Jerr-Dan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the mounting bolts with bigger ones, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2013. Owners may contact Jerr-Dan at 1-301-745-3713.
