    So my truck goes under the knife on Monday. I just went in for a "Pre-Op" appointment and the one thing we found was there are U channel brackets that are welded to the frame to mount the X-Brace to and the frame in the yard didn't have them. Also did you get a new X-Brace?

    It is not a frame for an XRunner without the X braces.

    Ya, that's what I was saying. I feel the xbrace is a frame part that should be replaced under this warranty

    Are there provisions in the new frame to bolt the x brace to? If so I would not worry to much. Very simple parts to remove, clean, and paint if needed. If the provisions for the X braces are not there, it is the wrong frame.

    When we looked at the frame in the yard compared to the frame under my truck the only difference were a couple u-channel brackets that were welded on (terribly I might add) where the bottom two bolts mount the x-brace.

    Can someone with a hitch receiver please take a picture where the x-brace bolts up to confirm I don't have a rogue mounting system?

    What the hell am I?
    "100% a new xbrace is provided
    i sold my new one since my previous one is"
    -easts1d3

    Are you talking about the mouting points for the xbrace?
    If so the new frame must have them!
    The xbrace was mounted to my frame when it came in!

    I didn't personally didn't get the frame done but I bought my truck from my boss who had it done a month before I bought the truck from him. He had the same problem toyota had to reorder a frame because it was for a regular access cab and not the x runner. Toyota had kept his truck and extra 2 weeks waiting on the correct frame

    Frame replacements are from 2005-2007 for now. X-runner frames have a completely different part # than the other frames. X-brace isn't the only thing that makes the truck different.

    What makes your truck eligible for a frame replacement?

    There was an inspection program associated with the recall. It ended at the end of March or April of this year.
