Mine is still in the process of getting done. It's been approved by Toyota. I'm still waiting for the frame to come in.
The dealer is not going to do anything for free. But if a part is worn & is coming off during the replacement you simply should buy a new one & have them put a new part in. If they try to charge you labor for a part they are taking off anyway, say something. That's double dipping. Toyota is paying them to replace the frame & all the labor that is involved, it would be an unethical move on the dealers end if they try to get you to pay on top of what Toyota is already paying. They are replacing the carrier bearing with a new. I will buy the part & no labor charge. I'm also having them replace the bushing for the rack. I purchased a much stronger after market bushing from a company called Energy Suspension and they will put it in.
My original plan was to replace my 3 inch lift with a new 5 inch lift & have them install it during the frame swap. But I have changed my mind since then. I have decided to reuse my old lift & have the body of the truck taken care of instead. I'm having the hood & roof repainted & the entire truck body buffed down. But i'm paying extra for that of course.
