  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...

    1Gen-Sequoia
    I know I've seen this in a few other threads but haven't seen any real verdict/ideas on what to do regarding wheel well rust on the rear wheel wells. They are rusting quite significantly and I want to mitigate the rust as soon as possible. Any thoughts? Pictures below .
  3. 2007 Fuel Tank Protector, rusted out

    Tundra
    In what seems to be a continuing story on the rust issues with 2007/2008 Tundras I found myself driving down the road with a heck of a noise under the vehicle. Come to find the fuel tank protector hanging down. Under closer inspection, the support bar was rusted through allowing the rivets to...
  4. 2007 Bed Rust Repair

    Tundra
    Hello fellow Tundra owners. This is my first post so I am not really sure what I am doing. I recently purchased a 2007 Limited 5.7L 4x4 and poorly negotiated after pointing out the orange showing through the spray on bed liner. After reading up online, I figured I'd better get in there and halt...

    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...

    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).

  7. RUST PREVENTION HELP NEEDED - just moved from the south to Upstate NY

    1Gen-Tundra
    I have a pristine southern 2000 Tundra 4x4 with absolutely no rust. I just moved to Upstate NY and I know the Tundra tendency for rust. I don't like undercoating because I feel like it plugs up drains and traps moisture underneath it. I've considered oiling the bottom side and fenderwells...

  9. Frame Welds rusting

    Tundra
    Hi...I am a new poster here. I am in the market for a Tundra, but have been alerted to the fact that a lot of Tundras are experiencing frame weld rusting. I understand the frames are made by Dana and they use silicon in the welding (mig?) wire. The silicon prevents the welds from achieving...
  10. Rust "How I deal with it"

    1Gen-Tundra
    Since some of our trucks are getting some age I thought I'd share how I'm dealing with it. Here is the before on my rusted axle: I sprayed it with CLR and took a wire brush to it on day one. Jelmar | All Kinds of Dirty, One Kind of Clean Day two: I sponged rust converter on it and let it sit...
