I had the frame replaced by Toyota two years ago after corrosion was detected on my frame. The frame replacement was done under the recall (>$11,000) and was of no cost to me. Also, the spare tire holder chain and assembly was recalled. Go to a Toyota dealer with your VIN number and have them check it out. Hopefully your truck will be fine.
Recall is applicable through the 2010 model year and is covered out to 15 years unlimited mileage. Those recalls are only applicable in certain areas where the trucks are exposed to significant amounts of road salt.
