Nope, just around the windows. I wash my truck every few weeks, and I get pretty close to the body when washing and I get a good idea of what's going on with it and where new chips are located.

rust spots everywhere everywhere

OK. I just washed my truck and I thought it was tar but it isn't. I have tiny pin sized rust colored spots all over my truck.. I tried scratching one with my finger nail and nothing came off. I used bug and tar remover and still there. these spots are smooth.. there is no chipped paint. There are spots everywhere, side panels of the doors, bed side panels, tailgate. And it isn't on the low side where you would expect rock dings. Worst part is that where I do have rock dings, there isn't any rust.

seems like the trucks were not prepped correctly from factory before paint was applied...or the metal used to make the trucks weren't treated (as in chemical treatment) correctly. This can cause what is called dissimilar metal corrosion...I see this all the time at work when you have two different metal compositions have been sealed together and begin reacting chemically, then over time you find bubbled paint and corrosion under it.

does anyone know if toyota paint is warranted for the life of the vehicle or does the fix need to be under the extended warranty? still worried about this issue on my truck .

Not sure, I brought my Taco into the shop for paint repair at just under 60,000 kms. run it by your dealership (or another dealership) and ask them where they are getting their authority to say when the limit is, and have them open up the warranty book and show you where it says so too.
