    Happened to be crawling around under my truck and came across this nice little suprise. It's a 2002 dbl cab with 99k miles. I'm not mechanical at all but I'm pretty sure this is not good. What are some of my options?
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    The pic is from my phone so hopefully it shows up ok. It's where my leaf springs connect to the frame.

    take it to the dealer...............from the looks of it....definitely aint gonna pass the hammer test for the rust buy back. they will buy it back from you....or replace your frame......one of the two. anything you have on it....take off(and i mean anything you wanna keep...toolbox,etc) until you know what they are gonna do. thats some serious rust issues there....spring perch is about to break off from the looks of it.

    so just take it to the dealer and they should do something about it?
    It's that easy? I thought the big frame recall thing was only for 95-2000?
