Default Box offset from Cab

I noticed this past weekend while washing my truck that the box is not lined up with the Cab. I guess im making a trip to the Dealer bodyshop to see what they say and if it can be aligned properly

a few people have reported this with the 2013s. I'm sure the dealer will fix it right up for ya.

I wonder if it's as simple as just loosening the body mounts and adjusting it, then putting it back

Fairly certain that is the case, the bed on my truck was off-set when I got it and they corrected it no problem, I am thinking there must be oblong holes for adjustment on the box.

i wonder if it's a matter of torque spec. Are they crooked from the factory? or are they shifting because the mounts aren't tightened to spec?

i'd make sure they suckers are snug.

Mine is doing the same thing. Poor quality control. It's easy to see
