It's only happening on Tundra's driven where the roads are salted in winter. Show me a truck that doesn't rust when covered in salt.

Government caused this problem, and now their forcing Toyota to issue a recall? Stop salting the damn roads!

I hate salt !

You dont see these problems with properly designed vehicles though do you?

Road salt is a necessary evil in some areas

Toyota has has issues with rust since they were introduced into the US market. Granted they have improved quality. But it still lacks.

my brother in law is loving it. So far hes gotten new paint, a new tailgate, and now an undercoating if it passes inspection all free of charge

The last paragraph is "tragic funny"
Toyota said owners could "minimize the risk of the spare tire separating from the rear cross-member by removing it. If you choose to do so, please be sure not to be under the rear cross-member or spare tire carrier during the lowering process." The automaker also urged owners to secure the spare tire in the truck bed or other areas of the vehicle.
Can you imagine the life-alert call?
Help!!! My spare has fallen and I cant get up!

Not to the same extent no, but the fact remains the salt/snow mixture caused the rust.

I don't ever see evil as necessary. There are alternatives to using salt.

Give me some alternatives that are cost effective, as readily available and achieve the same results without causing corrosion please

Im from Wisconsin as well. I also understand that rust is partially my responsibility. I have an 06 ford with almost zero frame rust. Because I take the time to wash my vehicles regularly. I also have a 98 contour with zero rust for the same reasons
