    My 1996 Tacos frame is showing heavy rust from front to rear. Is there anything i can do to stop the rust or maybe strip the rust off then paint it?

    A couple years back toyota sent out a notice about the frame rusting of the 95-06 models. I got a notice but i never took my truck down to toyota to get it checked out. would that notice still cover my truck now???
