in my quick google searching i found where someone said that it is, however at less than $10, even if it isnt... its a small cost to have a new bolt on an important part of the engine.

That’s my thoughts exactly. The truth is though is the dodge shop under warranty removed the bolt to replace the cam shaft and didn’t put a new one on with lock tight and here we are 2 years later and it comes off sending metal shavings all in my oil pan. Now the end of my crank is a blueish purple. All the shop will say Is hey at the time FCA didn’t make us replace it so sorry buddy.

maybe i'm not understanding correctly... How did a failed crank bolt cause metal shaving to be in the oil pan?

The bolt started to back out because it was reused with no lock tight which allowed the harmonic balancer to spin slow or not at all while the crack was sitting there spinning extremely the fast. Since the harmonic balancer is a harder metal then the shaft it started shredding the shaft and anything else right there.
