Gen 3 Bed Rust Solved?

Sorry guys I don't mean to beat a dead horse and I did search the forum but all I was coming up with is rust on suspension and under carriage...

I'm in the market for another truck and would like another Tundra, I know the Gen 2 had bed rust issues that I don't want to deal with. Are the Gen 3s still having the bed rust issues or did Toyota fix this finally?

Honestly Gen 2's or Gen 2.5's (since nobody considers it a Gen 3) didn't really have any issues... I've heard of like maybe 3 or so people on here mentioning bed rust issues and i think it was bed bolts not the entire bed. Want bed rust go look at a new model RAM that's already rusting the fenders out, or a 2009 and up Chevy that's already rusting the fenders out as well. I see them all the time with terrible rust on the back fenders. My Tundra is flawless.

I went an looked at an 08 that had the rust around the bed bolts and have seen others. I did a search here and it seemed to pull up issues with the gen2 rusting around the bolts. Weather it's a small number of them or large I'm just curious if the Gen 2.5 or 3 whatever it's called have had the issue at all?

I'm in MN so I will be more prone to rust anyways so just checking. I'm not interested in dodge or chevy right now...

Betcha its still there. They don't always fix things like that unless they are total deal breakers. I just saw a brand new RCLB and his tailgate was already cratered.

I don't care about the environment. Neither do you.

Yeep that stuff grabs on to everything. Attracts bugs like crazy but who cares underneath the box.

It's really not that hard to rattlecan any metal parts as a preventative measure against rust.

I'm not concerned about bed rust in particular with all trucks, I am concerned with rust overall with any vehicle. I just know that there is a known issue with the beds rusting in the gen 2 tundra and was curious about the newer tundra...

To answer your question more directly yes I actually stopped at the local Ford dealer a buddy works at and test drove a 2016 F150 today and I've gotta say they are a very nice truck! Although I don't know anything about them other than what I learned on my test drive today, I will be looking a little more closely at the 2015+ F150...

Google Howie Long Ford F150 and watch the video on how easily the bed gets perforated. It was very disturbing.

I didn't end up buying an aluminum F-150 but...

LMAO at that video!!! Every time I get something loaded in my trucks I ask the guy to raise his bucket as high as it goes and try to hit my bed with what I just purchased!! HAHAHA!!!

Sorry but that commercial is a joke! Thanks for the laugh!

Just like when they have a pallet of bricks or whatever, and just let the crane drop the load on the bed. Who the hell would do that? lol

i have a '12 tundra and i live in NY, no rust issues in/on my bed. my dealer is one of the biggest sellers around my area (has 2 stores) and i have to say, probably out of 1,000-1,500 (could be more, i'm guessing) tundra's they have sold, about 10 came back for the bed rust recall. and that's a definite number because a very good friend of mine is the rental manager and he had to give out loaners to those customers. you more than likely have nothing to worry about since there haven't been a lot of complaints on here about that. and i'm also pretty sure it was a very small batch of tundra's that were affected.
