    Hi All,

    I'm new to this forum and I am at a cross roads.

    I have a 2006 DBL Cab SR5 4x4
    Last year I noticed that my roof had a little rust spots on the roof. Over the last 6 months it has gotten considerably worse pics below.

    My question is. Is it worth repairing or am better moving on up to a new tundra?

    I'm at 130 000 miles and everything else seems to work great on the truck.

    Thanks for anyone's help or suggestions.

    Ouch for a 2006 that is bad. Sucks that some thing like that isn't covered for 10 years or so. You'd think the paint should hold up.
    To your question, the 5.7L is very nice!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    I would say time for an upgrade, but that's just my opinion

    Most likely started from rock chips. For rust like that I would get quotes from a Bodyshop . You only have 130,000 k so your truck is just broken in ! That's my opinion anyway !
