    Went to my dealer today looking for my new truck which hasn't arrived yet. While I was there I noticed a truck load of new complete frames were sitting behind the service dept.

    I also found six old frames badly rusted that had obviously been taken off customers trucks. I asked a mechanic and was told they are replacing any rusted frames from tacoma's years 2001 to 2004. As haven't seen any mention of this I thought I would throw it out and see what the hell is going on.. the frames they had removed were really in bad shape.:confused:

    That has been mentioned, but I thought it included '98's and/or '99's.

    I sold mine before hearing about it - my loss!

    95 to 2000 was a buy back.. my brother in law got 11,300. for a reg cab 1996 with 170000 miles on it. I guess they do not buy back the 2001 to 04 according to the mechanic I talked to.
