Not talking smack. Well ok the first question was.
Yes it is a T.R.D. and no my frame hasnt rusted through. Actually my truck passed the frame test with flying colors!! But toyota did pay to have my trucks frame coated with a rust protector. Its suppose to be good stuff, it got done 2 months ago and to this day it is still tacky when you touch it. i dont care what anyone says, i still admire toyota for there dedication to take care of the customer(i know there are many more reasons other than the customer). And for taking full responsibilty for a PROBLEM and not coming up with lame excuses, and doing the right thing, by buying back all these "faulty framed trucks". I know everyone is gonna have there own opinion when it comes to this TOPIC, but this is just the way i see it.

And like any truck if you don't take care of it in a salty environment it will rust through. If you watch it you will be just fine.
could not have said it any better my self!!
that 3.0 was a good motor aside the fact it did like to eat head gaskets.
