New Tacoma owner from Utah

Hello everyone!

New owner of a new/used 2012 double cab tacoma. I picked it up toyota certified with 3500 miles on the odometer! Looking forward to learning a lot from this site. My previous vehicle was a 2010 Nissan Xterra Off Road, I must say the Tacoma feels better built than the Xterra. My only issue, and my first thread is regarding the right rear passenger tire seems to stick out about 1/2" further than the rear drivers side. I am going to measure everything tomorrow to see if the bed is off center. Here are a few quick pics of my truck.

Thanks, if I find the bed is centered and need someone to check out my rear axel can you recommend a shop? I am taking it back to the dealer monday but it is driving me crazy and I have all day free tomorrow.

I don't really know many shops. Try posting on the Utah BS tread and asking if some others do. If I had to suggest someone I've heard that Kurt from Cruiser Outfitters is very knowledgable.

Welcome! You can dig around on here and find that the bed misalignment issue is common - and generally an easy fix. Good luck with it, and let us know what you figure out!
