    The truck was super cheap and I needed something just to get around in temporarily. I saw that I thought it was still covered by the frame recall til the 21st of may so I didnt think much of it.

    Oh, well Perhaps if you were the original owner or had the vehicle for some time they would of accepted the case. A lot of people have been trying to pick up rotted ones in hopes to get a frame swap and then flip the truck afterwards.

    From my understanding Toyota still accepts some frames even if they are past their date. That’s what a Toyota service manager told me. How bad is your frame ? You can appeal the decision, call corporate, or take to another dealer and apply for another claim

    I think if you’re willing to make enough noise they’ll replace it, the regional Toyota denied your frame so I’d call corporate and the frame warranty hotline and be very upset about them denying an unsafe frame and that it’s a liability. People have done this before with expired frames and it works

    not necessarily, lol
    would that not work to prevent corrosive stuff happening again until the wheels fall off?

    just throwing ideas out there for consideration
    its OUR/YOUR property, you know

    this is the very kinda BS that I am having troubles sorting out locally (relatives 2o11)

    it does seem that is possible

    I am waiting for answer from corporate, they said they would get back to me. Highly doubt they will replace it because they keep insisting that its passed the january 31st date of this year. The dealer also denied spraying the frame because it would just create more issues with my frame since they have to scale back the rust with a grinder.

    Did you bring it in for the limited service campaign CRC spray or for the extended frame warranty?

    This is my frame. Only took a few weeks to come in. They are waiting on the hardware but said the job should start in under two weeks.

    Nice! Shouldn't be too long. What are your plans for corrosion resistance once you get your truck back?

    I don't really have a plan a such. I guess washing the frame is the obvious. Will Toyota rust proof the frame?

    So how long is everyone waiting for their frames? Mine was inspected and failed November 5th 2018. It's been over 6 months and dealer says they don't know when the new one is coming in.

    Woah! I had mine inspected Jan 31st, and frame replacement finished by April 24th... 3 1/2 months total. I'm in Washington state.

    Unbelievable! My frame came in in three weeks. They said they will start working on it in under two weeks. Are you in a loaner??

    Did the frame and all the parts (hardware/bolts) come in at the same time?
