2013 Tacoma factory rear ride height?

Well after adding a topper and filling a couple of tool box's my Tacoma's rear end looks like it's sagging a little. It looks really bad when I haul stuff. So I want to raise it back up to factory height. Problem is I didn't measure it before I added all the stuff to it.

So my question to all you is what is your factory Tacoma with the off road package rear ride height?

Ground to fender with stock 265/70/16 tires: L/R 36.0 " and R/R 36 3/4" on my 2013 TRD Off Road.
From the center of the axle: L/R 21 1/2" R/R 22 1/4"
This is on a new 3500 mile truck. F'd up...Yes, so... I bolted a 1/2" plate to L/R spring pack and added 1/4" shim to the L/F strut mount to get the truck level side to side, front and rear. (the front shim brought up the rear 1/4" plus the 1/2" plate = 3/4")
Hope this helps

Good information. I also failed to make center hub to fender measurements on my 2013 TRD 4x4. Than I added an ARB deluxe front bumper and Warn M8000 winch. Big time front sag expected and it was so. Per ARB suggestion, I replaced the OEM front coils and Bilstein shocks with OME 886 springs and OME Nitrocharger N240 shocks. Front measurement fender to mid hub 23 inches. Rear 21.5 and I could see the sag. Installed ICON 3 leaf Add a Leaf in the rear. Now I'm 23.5 rear and 23.25 front. ICON claims a 1.5 inch lift and they were right on for me. Rides fine, couldn't be happier. No kangaroos in Montana, but plenty of deer. I don't see a difference in measurement drivers to passengers sides. Before the suspension changes I had a Taco lean to the drivers side of 1/2 inch.
