It is 2003. Has been sprayed by Toyota and even patched...all the black spray-on stuff is flaking off.

patched by Toyota?!?! I had no idea they did that. Why did they not replace the frame?

I'v noticed that my spray is flaking too in just a couple isolated places.. not a huge concern though to me, 'cause if it fails b4 2016 I get a new frame

and Lucky - your buddy is covered thru 2018 and will get a new frame if/when it fails soo I'd say rest easy and wheelit like hell, then get a new frame and wheelit forever more

frame is ugly/rusty but Toyota ok'd it and said it is good to go. they will inspect every year and replace the frame at such time as it becomes penetrable (from corrosion).

suggestion - IF you have an 01-04 get the local dealer to inspect and build up solid stack of paperwork every year to document the progress and establish owner prudence.
