It's a "2002 + Toyota + Tundra Extra Cab 2WD". I guess tirerack doesn't always have the right picture. I did find a side-view with the normal rear-bed, so I will redo it.

No reason for the wheel skirts other than "connecting" the base of the wheel-well, which is my "aesthetic" I guess. I'll do another one and post it by tomorrow morning. I will lower the wheel skirts to the side skirts.

Do you want me to extend the side skirts behind the rear wheel?

In terms of lowering, I measured the "black gap" between the top of the wheel and the top-dead-center of the wheel-well edge. In the unmodified picture that gap is 15 pixels. Then I moved the tires up by 1/2 the number of pixels. Do you want it even lower?
