    A few months ago I high sided and scraped up the bottom of my frame pretty bad. After the recent rains its started to rust, what can I touch it up with to remove and prevent any further rust?

    You can also look for a product like Por15 or RustBullet- Should seal the frame and stop any rust from forming underneath the patch work.

    Yeah that's my plan, don't drive the truck when it's wet, and after washing drive it uphill, downhill, and on the highway, then put it in a garage. thank you Toyota for f*cking up the frame and not noticing for 10 years, I noticed in a month. The big wigs at Toyota must be driving around in BMW's and too good to look under the rig.
