    not sure about specific locations on a 2nd gen. however on a 1st gen the cab (mounts...especially the front) show signs of rust long before the bed does

    #1 thing...Do not over heat the truck...any sign of a strange hike in water temp, turn it off and roll to the side of the road fast. I use a 180 temp thermostat cause I am a paranoid owner.
    Keep your timing belt checked, 60-80k miles and snap! They are cheap to replace.
    Change muffler bearings if they start making exhaust sounds.

    What about the dreaded headlight Fluid rotation!! These trucks are horrible about that!!! The stealership only has the correct weight fluid anymore!!
