taco lean! Sounds like the rear axle got bumped during a lift or something. Look at the spring perch and see if they both look the same.

Is this really common in the 2012's? I have read on here that adjusting the bed is simple. I have checked the offset of each rear wheel and they are exact, ubolts are tight. Could this be anything else? Any input is appreciated and I looked forward to being a part of Tacoma World.
Is there a reason you aren't just taking it back to the dealer for them to figure out? It sounds it shouldn't have been allowed to leave the lot like that.

How is suggesting they take a recently purchased truck back to the dealership to address a possible problem freaking anyone out? If it was a toaster oven, I'd suggest the same thing. It probably is nothing, but as a new owner, they shouldn't have to bother with any of this.

Haha ya your right, theres nothing wrong with bringing it to dealership, especially since he just bought it. If the bed isnt aligned perfectly it most likely came from the factory that way and the dealership wont do anything about it. I wasnt specifically talking about your post, But most likely the issue isnt a major one.

Going to take it to the dealer Monday... I am just impatient. I'm not worried, just picky I guess. The truck drives amazing, I would be worried if it didn't. Thanks for the links!

Ya you shouldnt be worried, all the post in here are helpful, and any of them could be the issue. I just think the most common and logical problem is you bed isnt perfectly centered

Agreed, except that it had an aftermarket lift already installed when the OP bought it.

OP, glad to hear you aren't letting this bother you too much.

Update, measured from the frame to the center of each tire. The passenger rear is off by about 1/2"-3/4". ???

Well looks like someone was wrong im am curiuos as to what the dealer says. Also i want to know what solution to be, im sure you could shift the axle a little if you loosen the u bolts, but i would think the centering pins in the leaf springs will pretty much keep the axle where it is.
