Default Rambox Door Adjustment

Is there a way to adjust the doors on the Rambox to make them close a little tighter?

coastline if you find out anything let me know, I was looking at mine earlier and the passanger side is a little higher in back. I see it looks like an adjustment on the locking mechanism but not the striker. I'm gonna play around with it this weelend and let you know if can make it work.

I noticed the same things you did about the striker etc. Mine is also a little high on the passenger side and a little water is coming in. I'll let you know if I find out anything.

Don't forget to inspect the hinges and make the necessary adjustments.

It's the hinges that will re-align the entire cover housing and its positioning thought the open/close range of motion.

Just a thought.

So adjusting the hinges will allow the lid to close tighter?

I had the same problem with my Rambox. It is a 2 position lock system, close the lid and count the number of detents you feel. Typically you may only feel one, if so just push down on the lid and the 2nd will engage. Then your box is closed tightly. If you only have it shut to the first detent it will look like it is sitting to high and will rock when you push on the end of the lid.

My Rambox has the two bolts at the top like you have pictured. However, at the bottom of the plate I have two rivets instead of bolts. I loosened the two upper bolts but it wouldn't move up or down. My truck is a 2013 model, it must be a little different design. Thanks for your help.

you may be right. It appeared to be closed all the way but when I pushed down on it harder, it did click down again (driver side is not like this, it closes fully when I slam it down). I'll have to wait until I go through the car wash to see if it works of not. Thanks for the info.

You're right, I did the same thing and pushed harder & it did close better but is still a little high just on passenger side but there is no adjustment at all. Mine didn't leak but I just didn't like how it looked. If it keeps catching my eye I'll bring it back to see what they can do.
