Bed shifted to the right?

So i was looking at the back of my truck today and noticed the bed looked like it is shifted to the right. Here's what i mean, if you look down the right side from tail gate everything looks pretty straight from the bed to the cab. If you go to the left side it looks like the bed is moved right somewhat so u can see the cab sticking out compared to the bed. Is this a common thing?

Well I guess i can't spell question!

It just seems that way because you are only wearing one shoe.

Would somebody go look for me. I was rear ended in a brand new truck so i'm worried the panel on the left side is jacked up. The composite bed looks fine though. It's just sickening right now.

may need to see if there are shims under the bed.....maybe one of them is up farther than the other side.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Could be your bed is a little crooked. Not a big deal to fix yourself, but you should have a warranty on the repair from the shop that did the work. Take it back to them, and let them fix it.

I would assume this is covered under insurance? Did you have the truck looked at by an Adjuster yet?

Mention this (and everything else you notice that is 'weird') to the Adjuster when he looks at your truck.

I have sold truck caps and accessories for 10yrs. I have seen many trucks, in all makes come off the new car lot this way. It is very common to all pickups some much worse then others.
