93000 150 Tach not getting correct signal...would show revs <500 rpm event at freeways speeds. Turns out sending unit from engine was not functioning correctly and the dash unit was replaced under aftermarket warranty for $100 deductible. Check engine light came on. 
102000 100 Took in initially for front-end alignment. Lo and behold, new service advisor informed me that the entire front suspension had to be replaced to the tune of $5K. He was shocked when I informed him I had an extended warranty. All was covered. Electric lock and window started working only intermittently on rear driver's side door. Required an entire new wiring harness for the truck. Luckily I paid only a single deductible of $100 for this and the suspension.

38000 0 I noticed coolant under my wife's truck. It's under warranty (extended) but it's a $200 deductable....so I tightened up some fittings & now I'm good. I won't do anything to the vehicle if it voids the warranty. 
40000 236 Last year (summer 2010) my wife noticed the AC was compromised. We live where AC isn't an inconvenience unless we leave the area: dealership suspected a plugged coolant line & said the problem is resolved Diverter for blower not working: dealer maintained diverter door needed replacing. Repair done today....haven't been in the truck yet. My wife drove it home....after all, it's her truck. wiring harness for driver's side passenger door replaced

72000 1500 all universal joints needed replacing as well as front drive axle bearings (both sides) as well as axle u-joints. replaced with greasable units. if only they installed greasable units like toyota does. 
75000 500 4 wheel drive front axle steering knuckle u-joints replaced. both sides were bad. 
79000 350 blinkers have a mind of their own. when i went to signal a left turn, the opposite light came on. almost caused accident. semi truck locked up hi tires thinking i was going to cut him off. the blinker issue happened only after 45 minutes.. 
82000 500 drive shaft universal joints. who in their right mind epoxies their universal joints in? dealer wanted $100 per joint plus install non greasable. bought off internet (greasable) and had them installed with clips for easier replacement. 
92000 0 replaced front steering strut. tie-rods also fixed for a recall. i swear when toyota comes out with a diesel pickup, this one will be gone.
