07 TSB leaf spring/MPG Question & Pictures

Can anyone upload a picture of their 2007 Tacoma with the TSB leaf spring installed? I am interested in seeing how it looks with the back lifted around 3/4". Does it look ok after the back is lifted the 3/4" without the front lifted the same. I'm almost sure it can hardly be seen. Also, does anyone see it effecting the gas mileage in any way? I have a 07 DC Shortbed 4.0 TRD offroad. Thanks in advance!

for the photos just search the photo gallery for "tsb" or "after tsb," plenty of people have put those pictures up. as for fuel economy, i don't think it affects it noticeably either way. i just picked up my truck post tsb from the dealership and got 24 mpg on the first tank. V6 4x4. so don't let fuel consumption stop you from getting it.

from what i saw w/ it done, it looked more like 1 1/4" of lift in the back. here is a pic of mine w/ just the tsb in the rear. but also notice, the front is on a downward slope, so its sitting a lil lower than it normally would...and no change in mpg

Thanks for the info!! JHodge, taco looks nice!! I went on the photo link & did a search on "TSB" with some results as well. Will probably get mine done before hitting the 36000 warranty as the TSB states.

Kinda late...but:

Here's a picture of my 07 with the TSB performed. For the past 3 months, I've been carrying 210lbs of sand in the bed. The sand bags were removed and this is the rake I have now. Not nearly as high as it was when I first got the TSB done. I think the minor rake it has is absolutely perfect!!


And for reference - here's a pict of the truck with the original springs after I purchased it last year.

Here's a pic of my 07 DC SB 4.0 TRD OR about a month after the TSB. Not the best pic because of the slope of the driveway, but it's more data for you. I have no plans to "correct" the rake.
