    I need to take my truck into the dealership to have it looked at regarding the frame...just curious if you guys know if there are certain areas of the frame that are more prone to rust damage?

    Although I don't have any rust on my frame, the front end area where the bumper supports meet the frame since that's the area that would get the most exposure to the elements.

    Toyota SHOULD know what they are looking for BUT that being said....they found 2 pin holes just in front of my rear spring hangers.

    The rest of my frame was immaculate and my son had done the "hammer" test already...

    Good luck and IF it needs to be re-framed......make that service writer your BEST FRIEND NOW....;)....
