Re: Rust Issues
From the consumer's perspective, it is TOTALLY irrelevant who produces/produced the frames. The vehicle is a Toyota and if we have frame rust it is not as though we are going to go complain to Dana, or in the FJ's case, probably HINO.
If I have another company build the boxes for a custom kitchen, which I mount doors and drawer fronts on, and then they fall off the wall . . . it is my responsibility to verify and ensure the quality of whatever material/components go into my product before it gets to the customer and it's my responsibility to fix or "make right" any issues that come about down the road.
