Last I recall Dana Corporation made the frames of those Tacoma's not Toyota.LOTS of rust issues. Ever since the 96-04 Tacoma, Toyota has cut corners on their frames. Even issued a frame recall on that model. Unfortunately for some unlucky FJ driver, it's just a matter of time before this becomes a major suit. How Toyota can afford to not learn from past mistakes is what I don't understand. Toyota, synonymous with quality... until recently.
It is sort of irrelevant who makes the frames for Toyota. It is still their responsibility because it's their name is on the truck.
My PERSONAL feelings are consumers need to be more educated about the product they are buying. I do not like it when people badmouth a company without having all the facts about the companies product. Again personal opinion.
Thanks for this I had never heard of this and living in Utah (the salt capitol of the world) we are also predisposed to rust. I get underneath and paint all the time. This seams like a better option.If you live in an area where they liberally dump salt on the roads for ice control, doesn't matter what you drive, it WILL rust. Plenty of 5-10 year old vehicles up here with heavy rust
When I got my FJ, I applied Fluid Film. Here is how the frame area looked a year later, after a winter of heavy salt use
Actually I do own one."Last I recall Dana Corporation made the frames of those Tacoma's not Toyota.
Can't say who makes them for the FJ's though."
One can infer from your OWN statements that you do not own an FJ nor have any interest in purchasing one in the future... yet you are on an FJ board blessing us with your opinion. Gimme a break. I have an opinion of people like you that I care not to share.
So then you're a hypocrite for not knowing who makes our frames. Thanks for walking into that one.
It's entertainment. It's funny when a guy lets his ego speak for him. Here's a suggestion for Kilted... Think first, then post. It tends to work out better that way.Tonka Truck, I was debating a reply to Kilted Chicken but determined that my time was better spent ignoring this offensive poster. :lol:
