    As far as the history of the truck goes:

    Purchased bone stock @ just over 18k miles with oil change and fuel filter done just prior to purchase

    Changed the oil @ 22k just to make sure the right oil and filter were in place. Found metal dowel/pin/whatever in pan but no other shavings. Dealer didn't care.

    Changed oil @ 26k. No metal in pan

    Changed oil @ 32k. No metal in pan

    Changed oil and fuel filter @ 42k. No metal in pan

    Changed oil @ 48566 miles. Found metal dowel/pin/whatever in pan.

    Took it to the dealer again and they couldn't figure out what it was. They said they would drop the pan and take a look but because the truck is running fine and there are no trouble codes it would be my responsibility to pay for the job.

    I when I got home I spoke with an fca rep and they said they don't have anyone I can send the debris to that could determine the source. So basically nothing to see here, move along. At least I have a paper trail if it does let go but at this point I'm not too worried. No other metal shavings have come out and nothing in the filter. Let it ridešŸ˜Ž

    U now have a paper trail. That's most important.

    Just like kazi said, you might want to try contacting VM.
