The 3,670 Gladiators may have been assembled without grease in the monoblock joints, which are constant velocity (CV) joints within the center of the driveshafts.

A monoblock joint without grease may overheat and seize, causing the rear driveshaft to fracture and put a stop to forward motion of the Gladiator. Additionally, a driveshaft that completely separates could become a road hazard to other drivers and their vehicles.

If I was driving a gladiator, I would not want to wait till Oct 18 to get it replaced. That could end up bad at highway speeds.
