Default Cab moving

I just purchased this truck (2003 reg cab, short box, 1500, 2wd, 5speed 3.7) about a month ago. Recently I have noticed the cab and box arent lined up occasionally. It appears the cab is moving has anyone else experianced this? How do you correct it? My dad has a 98 2500 and his box and cab have always not lined up but mine appears to moving from side to side as I hit rough spots in the road and depending which way the weight is shifted, it seems to move. Ive looked for cab mount diagrams online but I havnt found much of anything. Any help is appreciated.

Could be worn body mounts, which would be strange given the age off the truck. You can get polyurethane replacements pretty cheap. Could also be chassis flex. I don't think those frames are as rigid as the new ones.

Could also be the bed as well. I'd check the cab mounts for looseness/wear.
