found more info at
http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/...8&refurl=email

looks like the only 1500 listed is Mega Cab 4x4 2006-2008

SUMMARY:
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2003-2008 Dodge RAM 2500 4x4 and 3500 4x4, model year 2007-2008 Dodge RAM 3500 4x2 Cab Chassis and model year 2006-2008 Dodge RAM 1500 Mega Cab 4x4 trucks manufactured February 12, 2002, through February 13, 2008. The left tie rod assembly may break.
CONSEQUENCE:
A failure of the tie rod assembly may result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the steering linkage and install a new left tie rod assembly, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N62.
NOTES:
This recall supersedes Chrysler tie rod recall 11V350. Vehicles that were previously remedied under recall 11V350 are also affected by this campaign. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

If you are not the original owner of your ram and not getting the recall notices. Can you go to your local dodge dealer and have them go over all the recalls on your 2004 ram and do the repairs?

Yes, recalls are for current owners. You do not have to be the original purchaser.
