    Got this from my local dealer..
    Anyone here been notified of this?


    ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH FOUR WHEEL DRIVE, A SECTION OF THE REAR PROPELLER SHAFT MAY HAVE BEEN IMPROPERLY CAST. THE FRONT SIDE OF THE REAR PROPELLER SHAFT COULD SEPARATE AT THE JOINT AND COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE ROAD SURFACE WHICH COULD RESULT IN A LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL, INCREASING THE POSSIBILITY OF A CRASH. DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE REAR PROPELLER SHAFT WITH A NEW ONE FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON AUGUST 1, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331. TOYOTA RECALL NO. 70D.OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

    I got that for my truck last year about 1-2 months after I bought it, called a #, they check they last series of digits on the VIN and tell you if your veh is affected. Mine was not included on the recall and there are only 108 trucks actually affected.
    The vehicles affected were manufactured between 5/30/07 through 6/4/07
    Vin #'s between
