I don't know if this will help much at all because my Tundra is a) 2WD; and, b) stock ride height. I do think the rear of both trucks are at about the same height from the ground with the trailers loaded. I think the difference that you are experiencing is what @Powertechn2 was saying earlier regarding the original rake.

It looks to me from your photos that the rear of your truck is not dropping any lower than mine. Instead it APPEARS that it is lower than mine in the rear because the front is higher than mine.

I provided photos that you can use to compare with as we can compare apples to apples here regarding U-Haul's auto transport trailers and somewhat relatively similar weight vehicles loaded (not exact though).

My .02 worth...

The problem is the Mustang has creepy eyeballs...oh, and your house is leaning to the left a bit...might want to get that checked.

Excessive Squat Towing Mustang

plain and simple. Too much tongue weight. Look in the owners manual and see what you are rated at, and stay there. Reduce tongue weight by moving the load back on your trailer, to within acceptable limits.

Too little tongue weight will result in trailer sway, so do not over do moving the load back.
