    Well to start out my Rad Red is 2008 TRD OffRoad package 4x4. 500 Miles NEW

    I measured from the cement to the wheel well Rear. I got 37" on both sides.

    Then I loaded the boat and jumped up and down to see if there was any settling.( I know, Pro., hu...lol)

    Then I measured again, and my rear end was 36 1/4"

    So a total of 3/4" drop in towing the Boat. I'm not sure how much Tounge load is but I beleive it's 350lbs. I will drive and then remeasure in a couple of months. I still have 2.9 yrs to gt TSB done...

    Best i could get with Traffic and the sun and Length.

    Looks good....do you 'need' the TSB...doesn't look like it if that is about the only towing/load you usually haul.
    If you are concerned then load a few hundred pounds into the bed and see how much it sinks.
    If you like your ride quality now and you don't tow/haul larger loads then I'd suggest not getting the TSB.
