Holy cow poor tundra. That looks like the frame could be bent. That is the next truck I am getting. Won't see me doing anything like that.

On that note...picture this in your mind.

Had about a 1998 31' A class drive past me flat towing a 2004 dodge 1500 short bed with a 22' boat IN THE BED! The bow was way over the cab at about a 45 degree angle held on to the truck with 3" ratchet straps! They were doing about 65- decided to pull off at rest stop to put some time and distance between us.

hondaman, i would have wanted to be in FRONT of that fool. that way when he crashed, and tied the hiway up for however long, i would be in front blissfully unaware of the laughter from the cops as they wrote his goofy butt a ticket.

A guy I work with has a Toyota Tundra that has been recalled. Apparently, Toyota sent several trucks to northern states with the wrong frame. A mechanic was able to put a ball peen hammer through the frame with no effort at all. Toyota is paying to have a new frame put on a 10+ year old truck! They wouldn't give him a deal on a new truck. That has to be VERY expensive!

Yes I did a warranty frame swap on a tacoma a year or so ago and it had about 120,000 miles on it, tore motor mount area on frame. Payed about 30 hours @ frame labor rate of $55 hour, and usually $1500-3500 for frames. I think toyotas cutting corners is really starting to hurt them. There is a new recall it seem every week and they are starting to loose customers it seems. I like working on then cause they have some crazy high repair times- glad I don't have pay for it.

I have a buddy that has a 05 Tacoma. He isn't very nice to his truck and his passenger side motor mount went through his frame. Toyota warrantied the frame with a baja style frame. Had more rienforcements all over it. For the frame and all the labor it was $15000. Took the Toyota dealer about a week and a half to get it all done.
