truck bed leaning
I have a 01 RAM 1500 4x4 and my bed is leaning to one side. It looks like some one is sitting on one side and is forcing the other side up. I just replaced my shocks but have never seen this before. Any thoughts? I'll post some photos after I get my new tires in a few.

Here are the links to my photos of the truck.

is that just the bed leaning down on the driver side or is it lifting on the pass side... or is it the entire truck...
if its just the bed check all your bed mounts and make sure one didnt come apart or isnt rotting...
if its the whole ass end of the truck check your leif springs and make sure everything looks the same and you didnt have one of them clips that holds them together come off

Really can't tell by the pics. If your bed is even with the cab and horizontal under the window then your problem is not the bed mounts and may be the shocks or leaf spring on one side, or your frame on the one side may have been twisted from an accident or something.

Looking at the pics, you have some dents, may have twisted the frame or bent the bed where the body mounts are, hard to tell. Measure from the ground to the frame under the truck to see if the frame is straight, then the same with the bed from the ground to support rails or leading edges of the bed if there are any un damaged areas that are in the same locationm on each side. if the supports are bent you can build them up by adding fender washers or spacers between the bed and mounts.
