    i'm no expert but there doesn't seem to be much frame rust in that last pic. looks like just surface on other parts

    I bought my truck like this.... Now toyota is replacing the frame. Just take the vin of that truck and put it in the owners section of toyota.com. Check the recalls and if it hasnt been done tell the dealer that has the truck to take it then you will buy it for the same price after toyota does all the work.

    Shes been at toyota for a month. Still no word. A 14000 dollar job for free though. I have a free camry right now too. My frame was busted to shit though. It was an 03 originally from NH. That one looks good man. Prolly want to look up that owners site just to see whats been done.

    Dude, if there is any chance of getting the frame replaced, you should buy it. My frame was replaced 1 month after I bought it. I'm quite happy about that, Had suspension installed at the same time!

    They want 18500 taxes in on road, they'll toss in new plugs, exhaust and some tires (wont be of much use when i left it though :D) I always thought that Toyota only sprayed the frame to stop the rusting? never knew you could opt to get the frame replaced?
