Is this rust "ok?" --pics provided

I know, another rust question. Just purchased this 03 double cab and it spent a lot of its life in VA, so I'm a little worried....the rust doesn't look too bad, but I don't know exactly what to look for. Am I just over analyzing? thanks guys!

What rust?

You should see the underside of my 2007 from being in New England That frame looks to be in very, very nice condition. What you're seeing is extremely superficial surface rust and nothing to be concerned about.

Looks perfectly good to me. That's better than most frames I'd say.

My 2012 already has more rust! Seeing that amount wouldn't even cross my mind as a concern.

My frame got re-coated by Toyota in 2010 and has substantially more rust than that. Jealous!
