    So I bought my Tacoma when I was 17 with 45000 on it. Now three years later I'm at 97800 and still doing well enough.. However I know Toyota trucks have been know to have a rust problem, and my truck is not rust free. I do a bit of off roading, as much as a prerunner can, but I dont think this much rust can be blamed on me. I just want to get your guys opinion on what I should think about my rust problem.

    For an 05, that thing is gorgeous. I would have absolutely no concerns at all.
