05s the only year for the bad motor mounts?

Might be looking at a nice 06 soon and everything I see about the motor mount problem was in the 05s. Is this correct?
I checked the TSB list and did not see it.
Was it a full recall?
Any other things anyone has run into on the 06 models to look for?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Early 06's had the issue. Seems the latter ones dont.

Thank you sir.
I will be under it with a flashlight checking it out.

How did they repair it?
From the pics I have seen it looks like the weld was overpenetrated and broke the frame along the mount weld.
Seems like they would have to replace a section of the frame to do it right.

I will see it Wed. the 21st for the first time.
It is being traded in at my good friends dealership and he knew I was looking for one for my kid.
I appreciate the offer and may do that after I see it.
Thanks Chris

My 06 TRD Prerunner (mfg date 06/06) does NOT have the "updated" motor mounts.

I check them every oil change or whenever I'm under the truck.....
