    Is the frame rusting still an issue for the latest model years or did they fix it at some point? Wondering if this is something I need to be concerned about.

    I have not and have been considering for quite some time now. I'd be up to driving to your place and covering costs to do so. Let me know.

    Evidently it is as there's a current campaign through Toyota to have rust proofing applied to the frame and if you so choose not to get it done after being notified it will void that part of the warranty. You will receive notification in the mail if your truck is part of the campaign. Once receiving that letter I think there's a two year window to get it done. I dropped mine off at Oursiman Chantilly Toyota, they gave me a loaner car for $5, and had it done by the end of the day. The entire process was super smooth and quick.

    I haven't seen anything yet from Toyota but I suspect they're targeting the older trucks first.

    On the 6th row of the first page it says "Certain 2011-2017 Tacoma." That's the only row I found a mention of frame corrosion resistant compound (CRC) application, unless I'm missing something.

    Thanks guys... i'll be giving Phil and Steve's a call on Monday. Hopefully one them can take care of me

    Changed the oil this morning and it seems like my HG is ready to go :frusty::frusty:

    I think I'm experiencing all of the classic signs of a HG leak:
    1. yellow gunk in oil cap
    2. losing coolant
    3. coolant leak behind water pump / thermostat (just did this repair 2 months ago too!)

    The gunk in the oil cap is just from condensation build up I believe. It can happen from short drives around town where the condensation doesn’t get burned off. It sounds like you just have a leak and it wasn’t done 100% correctly the first time with regards to the gasket. Hopefully not HG because that’s not a cheap job

    I definitely had rust showing in every crack and crevice of my frame before I traded mine in after two winters. Just surface rust but you think they would have figured out how to coat a frame by now. I would hope it rolls out to the new trucks but I personally hit all those places on my Gladiator myself as soon as I got it home... fortunately it never saw salt a day in its life so it's pristine coming into the land without rust.


    @EatSleepTacos is spot on... if it's just inside the cap, it's generally condensation that's built up inside the crankcase. Super common with the seasons change getting colder. If you just did the water pump, it's possible you got a bad part. I've definitely done my share of rework which is why if they weren't buying from the dealership or Napa's premium part, we didn't warranty the labor.

    Typically a HG will show air bubbles in the coolant, oil in coolant and/or water in the oil, a leak somewhere around the HG, or blue/white smoke - especially at startup. Sounds to me like you might want to re-check that water pump but you can always drain coolant and oil to see if you see anything abnormal.

    believe it was for pre 2018 3rd generations

    I don't wrench for money anymore; those days are gone. My plan was to hold a "ModDay" at my house this year but with Corona that got cancelled. So whenever we get past this pandemic it will get planned and we could do a bunch of trucks if people buy cans and bring beers etc.

    They charged for a loaner for warranty work?

    I could select a different case possibly. I'll keep that in mind.
    So i just want to use it for gaming. I want 4k max settings on any game to run smoothly and to *hopefully* only need to swap out the gpu in a few years for it to still be competitive. I have a feeling its overkill for my needs, but am a big fan of buy once, cry once where it does everything you'd expect it to do.

    I'm pretty much the same way. My advice is that #2 is generally the best choice as the top end will cost you a lot of money for just slightly more performance.

    The RTX 3090 is the end-all option right now but the RTX 3080 is a far better value at half the price. AMD has some good cards as well with their new top card looking to land between the two Nvidia cards but their ray tracing is less developed and you're likely to see larger performance hits on that side if you want that bucket of awesome.

    The most important factor right now bar none is that the board and CPU you choose support PCIE 4.0... that will be the standard going forward so as long as you can support that, you're likely to be good for the next few generations of GPUs. 4K gaming is GPU-bound and likely to remain that way for a while so a solid 8/12 core processor now will easily last you.

    Here's a quick list of what I would toss together here and now with a bit of room for a case, RGB (if that's your thing), and odds and ends like fan upgrades. If you can assemble yourself it's a lot cheaper than buying a pre-made but if not, you might need to step down a little on a few things to get under your price if buying from a builder.

    I'm not sure i'm comfortable with building one myself. I'm by no means tech savy.

    Rite rite. Remembered seeing a post, then coming across this in person. That said, the store had a whole pallet of ‘em.

    I do find it interesting the sign said, limit 5.

    Have you thought about dropping into Micro Center to speak with them to get some ideas? They will have everything you need and the experience with building them to give you advice. If your interested in doing online research, ANANDTECH.com and Tomshardware.com are good good sites for component reviews. Fortunately you have a sizable budget...

    I have this mentally, but it doesn't work too well with technology, especially not for pc gaming.

    The market doesn't have a setup that can offer you reliable 4k @60fps. On top of that there is a MAJOR shortage of top-end GPUs right now.

    I agree with everyone else though that you should build over buy at the price point you have. You will literally save thousands. If it's your first time watch some YouTube videos (I'm a big fan of linus tech tips, amazing sponsor segways not withstanding) to get an idea of how it works. Honestly, it like putting a Lego kit together except for the parts are more expensive and the hardest part being the research to find out if everything is compatible.

    This can give you a guide as to where to start and help with selecting individual parts.https://pcpartpicker.com/

    Yep but I think it was more like a small fee charged to cover cleaning/sanitizing the vehicle.
