    took delivery of my white 2009 TRD Acccess Cab 6 weeks ago. Noted a play in the steering mostly on rough roads. the Steering felt loose like an old truck??? Dealer just ordered a new rack and pinion assembly and steering colum joint..no questions , no arguments, no fuss.... Should get it back Friday for a test drive.

    You may find that you still have it when you get the truck back. From what I understand it's normal for the truck to feel this way, I notice it when driving on washboard roads.
