2003 frame replacement "strategy"?

Just learned from Toyota this evening that my 2003 Extended Cab frame is eligible for replacement due to rust perforation. Before I call them back to discuss options, can people share their stories/strategies for negotiating with Toyota for fare treatment. Last spring/summer I spent 3 months researching the purchase of my 2003, and after testing 2001's with replacement frames I vowed I'd buy a newer one because the trucks I drove just didn't feel "right". Now after just 11 months of owning this one, it's destined for the same fate. Very disappointing?

Has anyone been successful in getting them to either honor the 1.5 KBB replacement value or offer comparable credit towards a trade-in for a new/used Toyota.

-Thanks
