    Just checked the truck and after 10k it's already showing a few spots of rust, going to be tackling this soon. Thanks OP!

    I have a better mod for this particular area that I've used to great success where the condensation drips onto the frame. Super cheap and you can get it from just about anywhere online or in auto stores.

    For those of you with rust, where exactly is the spot (I can't tell from the picture in the first post)? Can you see it looking down from under the hood? I have an RCI skid plate, would that block me from seeing it?

    This is definitely a big oversight by Toyota. Took care of the mod last weekend.

    I've said this in here before, but my '99 Taco has the A/C drain in the exact same spot as my '17. So it seems Toyota hasn't changed that design in at least 18 years. My 99 has no rust in that area either

    But the “gee wiz”, “I did a thing” self gratification of doing a DIY project outweighs common sense. ;)

    Higher pH makes water more basic...
