    I know that one of the big problems with our trucks is the gap in the tail gate. my left side is larger than the right side. not that its a inch of bigger,but it still lets water into the bed of the truck and its not a solid seal. so has anyone had this fixed? and if so what was the fix?

    Have you spoken with the dealer regarding the issue?

    Seems like a 1794 LE would still be under the bumper to bumper.? Hopefully the latch is somewhat adjustable.

    I hope they take care of you in a timely manner. Never dealt with Toyota service as I purchased my Tundra well outside of warranty coverage.

    I'd still love a visual representation of the misalignment.
