  1. Worth investing in?

    1Gen-Tundra
    I recently purchased a 2002 Tundra 4x4 off Copart.com for $1,800 (total cost $2500 delivered) as a project truck. I knew it needed a new third member. Unfortunately, the truck has more rust than I originally thought. Tonight I hammered and brushed everywhere I could to find the biggest problems...
  2. 3 month wait for frame replacement!!!!!

    1Gen-Tundra
    We were just informed that the frame on our 2004 Tundra double cab needs to be replaced. They also informed us that it could take as long as 3 months to get all of the parts needed. According to the recall, a "loaner" car will be provided for up to 3 days during the repair. Okaaaaay.... Now...
  3. Minimum lift that requires frame cutting modification

    Lifting
    This might be a strange question, but I'm looking for the minimum height lift that requires the frame cutting mod. I have a 2005 Tundra Crew Cab that hit a rock pretty hard in the center of the frame cross-member, which is where I think most of the lifts require a cut. It actually totalled the...

    I am new here and am aware of many posts regarding frame replacement. I've read many but not found my answer. My frame is being replaced no cost. Dealer presented me with a list of items that will or may need to be replaced incidentally (nuts, bolts, bushings, etc. Total $1,700+\-). Should I...

    Tundra
    Hey all! I am doing a bit of informal research about corrosion on automotive frames. I used to have a Tundra, but ended up selling it due to cost of ownership (I loved that truck). I know what you might be thinking, another dreaded post about the reliability of the Tundra's frame and frame rust...

  8. 2000 tundra frame recall...

    1Gen-Tundra
    Hello all, I have a 2000 SR5 tundra access cab 4.7l v8. It has 290,000 miles on it and now they are telling me I need a new frame. While the whole cost of it is covered, 98% of the truck is original. I am afraid they are going to give me a long list of things to fix. What im trying to get at...

    Hello there, I'm relatively new to this great forum, although I've been an assiduous reader for now more than a year! Love the quality of information of this forum, one of the best!

  11. Frame bent in very minor collision

    1Gen-Tundra
    My boyfriend spun his 2000 Tundra on some ice last week and ended up banging into a 10-inch-tall coping stone, hitting the drivers' side front tire pretty hard. There was no visible damage and the accident seemed pretty minor, so he drove the truck home, noticing the steering was way off and...
  12. Replacement Exhaust-manifolds-headers

    1Gen-Tundra
    I just received back from my local Toyato dealer my 2000 SR5 Access cab tundra, after they replaced my frame and a bunch of other parts that were rusted. They had my truck for four months, they spent $6,000 on parts, about $3,000 on labor and $3,500 for a rental car. Although I grateful that...
