    Used dealer in my area is willing to sell me a 1999 3.4 xtra-cab 4x4 for cheap. The frame appears to have a decent amount of surface rust on it. Will Toyota buy it back from me if it is rusted through? Or do I have to be the original owner?

    Also, given that I inspect it and there are no rusted through spots, should I pull the trigger on this? 123k miles and price is around 6k.

    You have to own it for a certain amount of time I believe. You can't just buy a rusted truck and expect to get 1.5 times blue book for it from Toyota.
