    So the previous owner of my 2013 must have been some kinda big boy, because there's an obvious tilt to the driver side when viewing from the front and rear. There is a spatial difference I was able to measure between the back rear tires and the wheel well so I know it's not just in my head.

    What are some budget recommendations to evening it out? Thanks in advance for the help.

    *edit, stock suspension no lift.

    It’s from your gas tank, not the previous owner

    Get a plus sized lady friend to ride passenger :D

    There is small spacers made to correct this believe it’s called a trim pack. Maybe someone else can chime in on that. Not to familiar with it.

    Big plans, small budget - ICON UCAs, BP51/Kings, SCS wheels, 285 KO2s, Leer 100XR canopy.
    If you measure from the centre of your hubs up to your fender that will show the different heights your dealing with.
    If you have a 1/2 inch difference between the front wheels you can get a 1/4 inch spacer to put on the lower side.

    Yup, top hat spacer. Simple and easy. You will need an alignment after install, which could open a bigger can of worms if your lca cam bolts are frozen. Fill your gas tank, get someone your size to sit in the drivers’ seat, park on a level surface and measure from the center of the hub to the top of the fender on both sides and compare the numbers. Buy appropriate spacer to even things up. *Important - the spacer will lift twice it’s thickness, ie a 1/4” spacer will give a 1/2” of lift.

    To be honest this seems much more pronounced than most taco lean "cases" I've seen.. maybe it's just the pictures

    Agree. It looks like maybe a broken leaf.

    Leave your truck alone,it looks fine,a full tank of gas will cause taco lean even if you have it corrected on empty tank.

    Maybe need to put a level on the bed of the truck so we can see how far it’s leaning. Pictures don’t really show any lean

    Measurements would be good. Personally it looks like a ton of lean to me (way more than the "taco lean") but that could just be the pictures

    Look at the rear mud guards, you'll see the obvious height difference.

    Did you check the rear leaf springs, like someone else suggested?

    Yeah I was under there trying to find a squeak and got real familiar with each leaf as I cleaned them out and sprayed. They all appeared to be intact.
