That aluminum tape is good for fixing rips in the interwebz too.

(that's a pretty cool trick there)

I actually used aluminum furnace tape.
I think other should see if they can get those plastic plugs from dealership.
Amazing enough my frame in those spots is solid.despite of 7 New England winters.

photos of new frame

Per the most recent posts here I just looked in my front wheel well. There is some type of flexi-plastic guard that's in there but a number of other open holes are visible. There are 2 photos from there.

The other shots are from when it was just up on the rack for an oil change. Unfortunately I was rushed.

I note with particular concern that the tow hitch was not deemed replacement-worthy.

good find.

fucking Toyota and their 1/2 assed fixes...

this is of course proof of the problem if they change their production process and fabricate a new part to retrofit into older frame designs. maybe in 10 years they won't have any holes

Yep my 05 showing signs of the dreaded cancer in the same spot. Gonna try and do something aboot it tis summer.

That's not signs of it, that's full blown cut-and-replace time. Look at the separation between the layers. I doubt there's much of anything solid in that area.

Its actually a lot more solid than what the pic shows even though it is separating. As for "cut and replace time" thats the plan.

Good luck. Your repair project might make a great DIY thread.

Wonder when Toyota is just going to give up and start pouring money into frame design and manufacture like water out of a jug.

I have no doubt that Toyota dumped a stupid amount of money into the unattended acceleration redesign (and PR) campaign, so there's always hope. I'm sure it all comes down to numbers.

Maybe not as cynical as that, but if they can spend less money placating a few people instead of dealing with a recall or redesign, it may take a long time to see a change. This is one area where the lack of competition hurts us.

Take it to toyota so it is documented. Last thing I would do is mod the frame and then have toyota deny any claim in the future.

The OP got his frame replaced so why do you believe yours is not eligible?

I never said I did but just like others being denied for vibe issues because they either lifted or are running larger tires what do you think Toyota is going to say when they see I have cut a bunch of stuff off my frame? Plus My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

Not a bad idea. All they can say is no.

When the OP posts his unabridged account of the claims process, I'll bet his truck being bought used from a Toyota dealer not long before the problem was discovered will be an important point. Round II's 2005 probably won't be viewed in the same light, even without any frame alterations.

This isn't promising though.
How U going to get inside the box ?

There are holes scattered about the boxed section, and the transition between open and boxed sections is completely open.

I used an undercoating gun to apply Fluid Film. It came with long extension tips, so I was able to either snake the tip/hose into a tight area (frame), or place the tip against a hole and fog the confined space (rockers). An aerosol can of FF may not be able to fog as well as an undercoating gun, but it can reach a lot of areas with the tip straw. FF is supposed to creep into more inaccessible areas, too.

I know I am but every time I walk by my boat with that bare unrusted galvanized steel trailer I cant help but think that is the solution. Toyota should at least make it an option. I would gladly pay and extra grand for a galvanized frame.
