Default Body design flaw?

Look at your box and cab on the passenger side, most nociable where that indent runs along the rocker panel. it dosen't line up! mine dosen't, and i didn't notice this until about 4,000 kms, and i thought i had somehow torqued the frame. so i drove to my dealer and looked at every truck on the lot and they were the same! My wife's uncle just bought a 3500 crew long box, and his box isn't on straight on the passenger side either! I'll post some pics later, but is my vision just screwed up? Is there a reason for this?

My mis-aligned part is passenger side, where the front/rear doors meet when closed. The front door seems further out than the rear door at the top only.

Same issue on my 2005 Dodge Magnum

The paint job on these trucks suck too...!!!!!!! I`ve found ALL kinds of issues with the paintjob on BOTH my 2010 dodge trucks. WTF...!!!!!!!!!!!!! As for fitment of all the panels and doors, mine is pretty fair, everything is aligned pretty good on both trucks. Dodge isnt the only one with these kinds of quality issues, ALL vehicles are so dam cheaply made....its called G-R-E-E-D...!!!!!! They build less of quality, and they`ll get more quantity, and that meens alot more PROFIT...!!!!! Sad but true...!!!!!!!!!! You can bullshit your way to the top, BUT it wont keep you there.

Funny you mention this, but the lines on my box/bed are similarly off. It's not terrible, but to the discerning eye, it's noticeable and mine is an '08. Seems like it would be more obvious on the 4th gens though because of the crispness of the lines.

Trade it in on a Phord if you aren't happy with it. Then you'll really have something to complain about!

Actually the unions and the union workers entitlement mentality help bankrupt the companies. Stop whining about bailouts, he made money blah blah blah. No one told you to buy a MOPAR product. That you did on your own. SO enough of the hijacked thread and back to body lines.

I don't have the mismatched issues you guys do. But if you look at the Cab portion and the bed of the truck you can see that the lines to match up but the pronounced line on the cab is not meant to line up with the pronounced line n the bed, look closely and you will see a softer line that the they are meant to follow.

wow- after reading this thread the expectations by some for the truck are incredible. My truck lines look good to me (may be off a centimeter or so) and finish is good. MY 04 Tahoe driver door lines up a lot worse and that does not bother me-I do not expect lines between evey panel on a mass produced vehicle to be perfect- particularly a truck to be perfect. There are always tolerances.
