My Tundra is in good mechanical condition and I recently had to spend some money ant time getting it up to snuff so I am hoping to save it for a few years. The frame is pretty rusty and I'd like to stop its progress. used some stuff from Easwood a long time ago on a resto project with a Chevelle but it was a very labor intensive process that required the body to be off the frame.

Is there a decent solution can be sprayed on after pressure washing to remove the loose scale? Unless there is some new stuff out there I'm left with a pressure washer, wire wheel, navel jelly and rustoleum and that seems futile.

Is the Tundra susceptible to the same frame rust failure issues that are affecting Tacoma pickups?

Rustbullet gets good reviews. Everything else I know of requires prep work.

Won't Toyota buy you a new Taco if it has rust?

Just if the frame rusts in half, I believe.

incorrect.. any amount of rust through gives cause for buy back.

Buy a chevy/ford/dodge. The cabs fall off before the frame rusts through.
