    I don't know how they determined which states are considered cold climate, but I'm guessing its relative to the amount of salt DOT applies to the roadway.

    the 2o11 replaced a '98 (bot used in 2oo4) that failed the hammer test after i literally pleaded with the pos dealer to check it with no notice sent
    i recall the dealer had literally no fkn clue what I was talking about at the time

    ...
    btw, you are located in a very scenic part of the country
    i was on a month-long job in the Seattle area in '99, too bad the job came to an end :( and had to drive back home (long drive!)

    My 2008 just passed frame inspection. Talked to the service manager and delamination or separation of the layers doesn’t count and they cannot get approval from corporate.

    I thought I read here that signification delamination of layers counts as a 10mm perforation.

    If anyone in the eastern PA or NJ area has any experience with dealers around here please PM me.

    Thanks!

    Its been 5 days now and no word back from Toyota, dealer said they would call me the second they hear back from them. They are also waiting approval for a few other trucks as well.

    Finally! After 7 weeks I picked up my truck today! I had them install Bilstein 5100 front Struts (set at 1.75") & Bilstein 5100 rear Shocks, 2" Block Rear Lift Kit, Energy Suspension 8.4109G Body Mount Set, & Energy Suspension 8.5140R Sway Bar Bushing set, Upgraded Front Differential Bearing, and Toyota OEM Aluminum Skid Plate. I gained a full 2" all around and really like the way it looks. I will probably add 1.25" Wheel Spacers all around also. Ride and handling feel great! The only way I can describe the difference in handling is to say it feels "tight", quieter and new. No other issues so far. I am very happy with it!

    What did they end up charging you for swapping coils to the Bilsteins?

    I was I guess kinda?
    Had my 08 coated and knew I had spots I was watching.
    I’d spent a lot of time trying to maintain the frame but started too late. They buried it in black shit I told them if the frame coating didn’t carry extended coverage to not do it. After it was done (6 hrs) they said Toyota will do nothing else for frame coverage.
    I was pissed I told them ahead of time I didn’t want it.
    I refused to leave until it was removed. After about 2 hrs of me not leaving and chatting with peoples looking to buy they called the PD on me.
    The suit saved my truck or I’d had traded it back so they ended up with it.
    Guess they’d still have won but I’d feel better if they got stuck with the bad frame somehow.
    Same dealer did the frame owner spoke with me and they did an amazing job for cheap.

    As it turned out the 3 hours of labor stuck. 1 hour for the spring compression and 2 hours for the bearing installation, lift kit, wire repair on a rodent chewed thru air conditioner wire, a corroded tailgate lock wire and installing the aluminum skid plate. I feel it was all fair and also was treated great by Dave Hsu at Elmhurst Toyota! Kudos!

    thanks, most folks in the 1st gen forums are not walking in my shoes
    they either live in a part of the country that doesn't deal with this winter stuff or their trucks are near toasted already and not deemed worthy of what I am contemplating on doing

    my frame passed in 2o11, but my relatives used '98 did not so they got a nice 2o11 red single cab from the proceeds
    they did not spray anything on my frame after it passed
    I have had this since brand new and had the undercoating, chip guard, paint protections, etc. before I took it home
    have worked my butt off to keep panels corrosion free (from experience as a teen)

    the first piece I am getting taken care of is the lower shield on the fuel tank
    getting it clean and powdercoated
    I can attach a before pic if interested to see what 22yrs of midwest weathering did

    I’m interested some pics would be good.
    Sorry didn’t go thru the whole thread. What year is your ride?
    Do you know your in service date?
    Pretty sure 1st gens get 15 yrs.

    Theyll replace your frame in any state. The cold climate crap just determines if you get the crc (I think). Hell, @Sebz13 had his replaced and hes in hawaii.
