Thumbs down How is my frame rust?

Hey guys,

I just recently read up on the frame rust recall and was wondering how mine was shaping up. I don't know what is *typical* rust wear so I took some pictures (best I could). What you guys think?

LMAO, what rust?

It's going to snow here tomorrow. Bring it up and drive around for a while, especially behind the salt or brine truck. Then take some pics in 6 months and get back to us.

Thanks guys... I am *really* new to vehicle ownership and care.

The rust on the long metal pipe looking part (excuse my ignorance, is that the exhaust?) is normal?

Yes, that's the exhaust and yes that is normal for the stock one to look like that on a truck that "old". When the frame looks like the exhaust, start worrying.

Yes that's normal and no big deal.

Your frame literally has the least amount of rust on it that I've ever seen on a 1st gen Tacoma

This explains why your frame rust thread has almost no pictures of the frame at all.

In any event, you're fine. Keep the paint as intact as possible, see about having it oil-undercoated every year before winter (if you get any snow in your area) and you should be fine...
