    I went back to the Dealer again this afternoon at about 2:00 to check progress. The Tech said between yesterday after I left and today he was able to put about 7 more hours in it.DSC00412 - Copy.jpg DSC00414 - Copy.jpg

    Note to self, go to Mark Miller...

    I would make a phone call to Toyota Corp...pretty sure it states that all frames that pass get undercoated...

    I will be taking mine in in the next little while to have the inspection done. I don't see anything that would lead me to believe it will fail, but now I know I will take it to Mark Miller. They are the most convenient by my work anyway. (And where I bought my truck)

    Looking at that limited service campaign for application of the CRC. Utah isn't one of the states listed (unless that has since changed and I haven't found it yet). So unfortunately it looks like if the frame passes you are on your own to deal with it if it is registered in Utah. I'll inquire again today when I take it in.

    I will have to pull my letter out and look at it again, but I swear it said the frame would be coated if it passed.

    Quick update. Dealership sent the report off and came back failed. New frame coming. Said that they will call me when the parts come in and should take a week to get the job done. I think that that is very very fast. Anyone get theirs done in a week? I was expecting months. Also they are throwing me a rental while they have my truck.

    The dealer has had mine 4 day's now. I stopped in this afternoon to check where they were and it was about done. It took about 4 months to the day for them to get the frame and all the parts needed for the swap. The Tech said all he had left to do was put the tail lights in and do an alignment then drive it.

    Good read. Definitely good to know. Not that I would want to have to fight, but a call to Toyota Corp. would probably straighten out the bill pretty quick. I don't anticipate my frame failing so I am not super concerned about anything other than if we qualify for the CRC application.

    Yea I dug a litter deeper into the thread and saw a week for labor is about right. I just got back to town. Wifey was taking care of this for me so I'll see tomorrow what they say as far as what parts are on order and how long they expect it. Her impression from him was it was all going to be pretty quick though.
    Glad to see it all came together for you. And all those black accents go good with the silver. See alot of silver around hard to make it unique. Looks good.

    Well, after waiting for almost 7 months the truck is going in tomorrow for the frame to be replaced, failed inspection on 5/20/15 and got the call today. Will also need the rear u joint replaced and rear axle seal on the drivers side replaced. Will update sometime next week.

    One of the reasons I love silver, it goes with the black so well. I'm too cheap to get paint matched stuff haha.

    Thanks. I have an '10 that came from Kingsport, TN that has a substantial amount of rust forming.

    Well, I picked up my truck this afternoon and to say I'm impressed would be an understatement. The truck was washed and clean like when it was dropped off, no spots on the seats or carpet. They replaced the inner, outer tie rods, rack bushings, front coilovers and UCA'S I supplied. They also put a hose clamp around my driver, secondary converter heat shield. He also separated the exhaust on the passenger side @ a flange connector to replace the bolts and gasket @ my request.

    All the work was completed with no charge to me on the paperwork. However I had told the Tech I would pay him for changing out the tie rods and rack bushings. The two Techs had big smiles on their faces after I handed them each an envelope with a bonus.

    After firing up the truck and starting down the road the difference was immediately noticeable. After the 25 mile drive home everything seems good. It's like driving a brand new truck again, no pulling, wondering and no noises. The new rack bushings along with the other parts I supplied really tightened up my steering and improved the ride.

    This was overall a painless experience and I'm very pleased with the outcome.
