I have been recently approached by a fellow taco brother and was told that he "fixed the lean."
My buddy tells me that 2g-present Tacos lean on the driver side. I've had my taco for about a year n some change and i haven't noticed it.

simply here inquiring if this is true or just another way to spend more money on the taco jajaj

it's real. no chupacabra stuff.

There is some logic in it since the fuel tank, the battery and the driver are all on that side. I haven't noticed it to any great degree on any of mine but I'm not a big guy either.

i can't assume that this is an issue that will affect the overall ride n use of the truck, right?

It's purely cosmetic.

Adding a lift sometimes accentuates the lean. Some have just a front lean and some have a rear lean or both.

Bought more than 1? Thought it was just the driver side front.

Bought one for my roommate, who was also oblivious to the "lean." Can't have our driveway filled with sagging tacos

Mine even leans with coilovers. I could fix it by adjusting the driver one I guess, but then I have to pull it to put it in the strut compressor, then realign the truck... not worth it. lol.
