    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?

    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.....
