Its called the "taco lean"

its a design flaw, toyota put all the heavy componants on the drivers side and with the added weight of the driver it makes the truck lean towards the drivers side

The "taco lean" thats funny. The design is flawed. They should have but the heavier components on the passenger side. I bet this lean is even worse in the 4x4 versions, given the extra weight of the transfer case and ifs. I drive a 2wd and I dont really notice the lean.

Smart designers like the people who built the Skyline R34 put the transfer case with the driveshaft on the passenger side. This helps with a better weight distribution on the vehicle, while also improving cornering speed since the weight is balanced. Just my .02

This is a "Truck" not a sports car. It doesn't bother me.
