    You shouldn't be too late. If I were you I'd go in and get it checked.

    My recall expires in 2016.
    I just crawled under my truck, I see alot of surface rust flaking off, but no holes or soft spots.

    I took pictures of the areas with a lot of surface rust

    My frame was the worst on the cross sections, especially above the gas tank....where you can't see. Massive hole.

    Mind also had lots of flakes,and the whole under was scarry to look at because of rusts all over the frame.
    I am no mechanics at all,but i knew that my frame was in bad shape.
    When they inspected the under carefully,they did founded wholes at places,so the frame was perforated at certain area.
    So the dealer should inspect it ell and will take pictures for the main house that will decide what to do.
    These were my first procedures.
