I got the spare tire carrier plate recall done at the dealership today.

    Taylor [OP] Wants to learn all about his Taco.

    First Name:
    Lynchburg/Harrisonburg Virginia
    03 4x4 TRD SR5 College build
    Extra badges, painted skidplates, grey wire mod, Kenwood double-DIN headunit, pioneer amp, 12 inch MTX sub, playstation 2 under seat, Uniden CB with 5 foot Wilson 1000 antenna, deckplate mod, 4xinnovations sliders, diff breather mod, bilstein 5100s at all 4 corners, OME Dakar Leaves, BAMF BPV bracket, Wheelers greasable shackles,
    It went well. They told me on the phone that they'd have to take the bed off. It only took them about 40 minutes and all I had to do was sign a sheet and they handed me my keys and I headed out. It looks nice, especially compared to the rust up under there and I trust it much more now. (You can see I didn't have my tire on there.) While I had the spare off, I painted the wheel and put a new tire on there and got it balanced. Here are some pics. I wish I had taken some before.



    So, a 5 minute phone call on Friday, and 40 minutes at the Toyota place today, no money out of my pocket, no questions, no problems. I'm very satisfied.

    Now I'm starting to get worried about frame rust as I'm seeing more of it as my undercoating flakes away... :(
