they're adding something to the rock salt down here, dads truck, uncles, and a friends all have new frames, the rear end diff on dads truck has a hole rusted right thru and the cover is a weldon instead of bolt on, oil pans, tranny pans all rust. toyota has the worst frames for whatever reason though, i remember a neighbor getting a new truck back in the 80's from toyota because of the excessive frame rot. what ever they are using burns as well, the dog flips over on his back with all four paws up just crossing the road, so far noones complained with me letting him run thru their yards on the way to the trailsLittle Steven said:There was a recall on mine and they inspected it. My SIL is a service manager at a dealership. If I had had any problems at all they would have installed a new frame (believe it or not). They have a lifetime coating they put on the frames now. Mine is an '08 and not a speck of rust on it. Pretty sure we're on about the same salt content.fishlessman said:been sitting in the same dodge dakota convertible since 1989
if i bought a new truck again it would be dodge but the prices are scary high. if i bought an suv it would be a toyota fj cruiser from a woman that parks it in a garage the day before they hear its gonna snow. my only problem with toyota is that the frames rot out in about 10 years up here from all the salt they put on the roads in winter, the good thing is that toyota replaces the frames free. dodges new 6 cylinder high hp gas engine gets 25 mph supposedly
