Spare tire winch recall

Got the notice of the spare tire winch plate recall in the mail in December;

it explains that rust will prematurely cause a spare tire to fall off the vehicle due to poor rust inhibitor treatment at the factory on the plate that holds the spare tire up on the winch cable...I live in Illinois and was wondering when this will get fixed?

Also, are they going to replace the whole winch assembly?

You could use this as an excuse to get a tiregate.

Mine is done as well...they did replace the whole unit as well...It took about 1.5 hrs at the Toyota "Stealorship"..they said it will take 2 hrs


I fabricated two brackets and added some security to keep the thieves from cutting the cable and stealing it again
