Mine is a 2014 built in September... goes in the garage Friday to get fixed. Dealer said they had one other truck like this.

Good luck......

The front bumper on my '13 1500 is about 3/4" lower on the driver side than the passenger side. I was told by my dealer that it cannot be adjusted.... I just got to live with it...

Just picked up my truck last night and noticed the bed was crooked today. I notified the dealer so we'll see what happens in the morning.

Wow, I noticed this the second day I had the truck but I didn't know this was such a common problem! My bed is about 3/8" off from center. The passenger side is the side slightly further in towards the cab. I know 95% of people will never pick it up when looking at it but it does kind of bug me

My 2014 had this problem as well. Box was 3/8 inch off to one side. Body shop guy said they had to loosen and adjust the bed and the cab! to get it aligned correctly.

My 2002 had the same problem. I didn't notice then until my topper was installed and didn't seem to line up. Now I always check.

BTW topper place said it happens occasionally on many makes of trucks, not just RAM.

I have also heard that some of the 2014 GMC'S and Chevys have the same issue with the bed not being straight.....

Default 2015 Ram 1500 misaligned bed with cab

Bed does not align with my cab either. and I've read many post on here after noticing that mine didn't. I see this is gone back a long long way what is going on with Chrysler do they not know how to put a truck together. called Chrysler Corporation.they call the dealer trying to get it fixed the dealer will not do the work they said they don't recommend tearing the bed off nor will they. isn't that great... the only thing I got out of this was free oil changes for 4 years and tire rotations ...damn good thing I'm just leasing the Truck. I will not buy it at the end of lease and I will pick the hell out of the next truck.

Go to a different dealer.. You are obviously not the only person with this issue, but you do seem to be the only one having an issue getting it fixed. My truck had the same issue and the dealer took care of it with no questions.
