    I just brought my truck in the other day, they took pics and sent them out to toyota. Still waiting to hear back from the dealership whether toyota approved the frame or not. Mines a 2wd 05 and its got a massive rot hole near the driver side control arm. Im assuming its still covered under the frame campaign til may 21st 2019. The service writer said that only the CRC coating is til may 21st. So i am still confused whether or not the settlement is still active and covered. However the writer said he was submitting the pics and information to Toyota anyways. Anyone have a similar incident?

    For frame rust it's 12 years from the date the truck was first put into service.

    This is just for the application of the CRC. They will not replace your frame if it's past the 12 year date.

    If you're going to get the CRC applied you have a small window of time to have it done. 5-21-19 is the last day to have it done regardless of date of first use.

    After reading the H0F LSC memo corporate sent out it looks like if they do find a perforation that was missed during the zh6 inspection, when scaling the frame during prep for the CRC they will replace the frame even if it is past the expiration date to qualify for wep zh6 frame replacement. At least how I read the flow chart shown on page 8 of the manufacturer communication letter on the NTHSA website.

    So what youre saying is since I brought my truck in and they found the 10mm or larger hole it qualifies for a new frame? I know for a fact 2005 trucks are definitely still getting new frames put in as we speak.

    That must be due to them find a hole while prepping the frame for the CRC. I can't say for certain, but I do know my 06 was approved on Jan 31st which was the last day for 05/06 trucks.

    Well either way I brought it in for that service campaign because i mentioned my truck obv had one pending. So clearly this should count as a rot hole.

    My truck is at the dealer now getting the frame inspected. I think it is in excellent condition and will pass, but I want the truck to last a long time so I want to have it inspected and be sure.

    The service manager at my dealer is supposed to call me tomorrow to update me on the situation whether or not I will be getting a new frame. Toyota Corp said that the frame recall expired Jan 1st of this year for my truck, I was under the impression that the CRC recall counted as part of the frame replacement campaign. So fingers crossed the warranty department at Toyota USA approves of the replacement regardless of it being out a few months...

    Print out that whole PDF document I posted and show them the flow chart specifically. I can't see how they won't replace it since corporate wrote that document themselves.

    However this is the only part of that PDF document that may be a problem. Clearly my vehicle is older than 12 years of production date. So again Idk what the dealer or toyota will decide. The whole thing is ridiculous all trucks from those years regardless should be covered for a new frame regardless when they are brought to the dealer. Toyota should either buy them all back and give owners a check or just unanimously replace all the frames because sooner or later people will experience rot issues since they were all made at the same place. But we all know thats just not going to happen.
