    Does anyone know if there is a frame plug kit for the tundra?
    I'm getting ready for rust season and it would be nice to plug up some of the openings in the frame.

    Never heard of frame plugs...but nessecity is the mother of invention, maybe someone else on here has. I am not sure I would plug the frame holes, maybe a good rust proofing or under coating might be the answer.

    No plugs that I'm aware of. There are a few rectangular shaped ones on the inside of the frame at the front but they're pretty small (like 1" x 3"). If they're missing probably the only place you'd find them would be at a dealer.
    I've never tried to plug a frame but in preparation for winter I clean the frame and floor pan as best I can. Touch up my undercoating with 3M 08881 and after it's cured I apply something to the inside of the frame like Fluid Film. This year I'll use Mavcoat. I also drop my spare and clean the frame and the spare and check the air pressure. I also go so far as to put a coat of wax on the oil and trans pans...my wife tells me that I have a problem lol.

    There is a kit available for the tacoma (p/n04002-07104). I don't think the cutouts in the frames will match though..

    I'd be afraid the plug would hold the moisture in there, I'd rather let it breathe.

    I wouldn't plug them, Just spray on some good under coating and go. That's why the don't plug running boards, the ones that do rust.
