    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    maybe the slop is just because the tailgate it removable with the slot on the right side is giving the play?

    getting there....
    replacing those bushings should do the trick, and when you do so........put a little anti-seize around them...it will keep them lubricated for a while. alos.....snug up any loose bolts around that area.
