DaimlerChrysler will reinforce or replace defective hitches in about 380,000 trucks.  The trailer hitches may have been made with sub-standard steel.

The recall affects Dodge Ram trucks built between January 1998 and September 1999. There have been no reports of hitches breaking as a result of this problem.
