    Most of my holes had been covered/scabbed for the two years prior to the buyback.

    Yes, if the frame can be easily penetrated it will fail. If it had frame repair, it will fail. Also, check the crossmembers over the spare tire carrier.

    They do a hammer test on it and if the hammer punches a hole in the frame the inspection is failed and Toyota will buyback the truck for 150% of Kelly Blue Book. For what it's worth the frames were made for Toyota by Dana

    That was at the Dealership in Pennsdale by the mall
    They never offered a rental to me.

    Alot of them still had aftermarket stuff left on them too.
