Toyota Tacoma Frame Replacement

Has anyone here went through the frame replacement process with their Tacoma? Just wondering if anyone had any issues after. My 2002 failed inspection so now its getting replaced. I'm kind of excited since a lot of stuff gets replaced along with the frame. I'm also nervous since I do all my own work, having a dealer do a complete frame swap is a big!

They did it on my 2000 tundra. I think it was in 2012 because their was a recall for the cross member that goes under the bed and the frame was so bad they just replaced the whole frame anlong with brake lines and everything. They only had it for 3 days and gave me a rental truck.

Yeah that cross member had something to do with the spare tire carrier I think. Did your truck drive as good/better after you got it back?

Never had it done myself, but no matter what I bring any vehicle in for, I always tell them, "Take your time and let me know when it's all finished." I do all my own work too, I only bring my truck in for things that are either covered under warranty, or for things that require special tools or computers. Sometimes the service writers will shoot themselves in the foot saying something about how it could be done at such and such time, and I always stop them and tell them to tell the tech that he (or she) has all the time they need, I can't come pick up the truck until they are done, so I'm in no rush. If you start to add urgency to the situation, that's when things go wrong.

That is a great point. So far the service department has been very helpful about it. They said it would take about a week and will try their hardest to make sure my rental is a truck (They only have 2 rental trucks). They were surprised and relieved I was so cool about it. The warranty on my frame runs out next year so I'm glad it happened now.

This is kind of what I am thinking. I plan on having a few extra things replaced while they have it apart, along with a good undercoating on the body. The service guy said he's had people drop thousands of dollars on parts when they do it, but the truck is literally like new when they leave with it.
