Once its on the road I'm taking it to a local welding shop that has some good feedback online. Ive seen a few treads on here and another site about repairing these. could replace the whole thing with an aftermarket part but the stuff ive seen done custom I like a bit more.

Your rust is unfixable. You need a new frame.

I have 2005 SR5 150,000 miles and my frame is about perfect - no serious rust threws anywhere.

Maybe Toyota will help.

Depends what his goal is. If he plans to keep it for 20 more years, then yes, a new frame is probably the only answer, but cutting out and replacing the bad areas, along with diligent upkeep, and recoating the frame inside (as much as possible), will probably keep it together as long as he wishes to keep the vehicle, or at least as long as it stays running. There are no free rides... you either work on/maintain a cheaper, older vehicle you like, or pay big bucks to have a new one, that very quickly degrades to a ďusedĒ vehicle anyway... I hate having to worry about the frame rust living in the northeast (salt), but I paid cash a couple years ago for my truck, and still love it, so I do things as needed to keep it alive as long as I can. Bottom line is the extra work is WAY less than dealing with hefty payments every month, at least for me.

It's just the radiator support. If seen aftermarket ones online that can be welded in and seen a few treads on here of some different types of repairs. The rest of the frame while not perfect is decent enough. I'm gonna have the welding shop look it all over and I will be cleaning it up this spring and coating it.

Currently have a 2018 Honda pilot with a payment and due to divorce paid cash for this. Worth the cost to have it cleaned up. Every other one I looked at had high miles for around or close to the same price or was clearly an odometer rollback from some shady title jumper. Saw 2 that had frame damage from an accident. I hate people that try scam.

I've heard that rinsing with PLAIN WATER helps, but not to use SOAP, as that can react with the road salt/de-icer and make it worse. Shrug. Maybe just a myth.

We don't get snow here very often, but I rinse the underside as soon as possible after the roads clear of the de-icer.

CJM's rust is fixable. The rust on Monty's is a lot tougher. Almost anything can be accomplished with a welder and metal but that's a lot of fabrication there which is costly. I think I'd try and find a donor piece to cut off at your nearby junk yard to weld onto this truck.
