Summary:
      Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc. "Isuzu" is recalling certain 2018-2020 FTR and Chevrolet 6500XD vehicles.

      Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing left and right jam nuts with a Grade 8 jam nut, torque the nut to a new torque specification and apply Loctite to the nut and bolt, free of charge.
