Yup, same problem. I bought 2 new batteries, and snapped a tie down trying to undo the rusted-solid nut. The batteries the truck came with were 8 years old! To get the rusted piece out, I had to remove the whole plastic battery tray. 2 new hold downs and clips/nuts from the local Dodge dealer fixed it. But every fall during my pre winter checks I take out every vehicle battery, clean it, check the electrolytes and top up, recharge, and spray battery paint onto the posts. I think these hold downs will last as long as I want to keep the truck :thumbsup
