View Full Version : Bed/Cab Alignment
08-13-2006, 04:16 PM
The bed and cab on my '06 2500 are not in alignment.
The bed sits towards the passenger side more than the cab. Looking from the back side, the cab is visible from where the bed ends on the left by approx 3/4 inch. On the right it is even with the cab.

Looking from under the truck, it appears that the bed is positioned on the frame square and doesn't look to have enough adjustment to move towards the left.
Could the cab be positioned wrong?
Anyone else noticed this on their Rams?

Yes my 03 2500 is out of alignment a bit but I've never adjusted it.

yup, mine looks like crap too. 42 grand for a truck and they can't even adjust the bed right. The emblems on my tailgate are all crooked also.
If it goes back to the dealer it would only come back worse.

There's only six bolts holding the bed in place and all the mounts are slotted. I'm gonna loosen mine up and slide it to where it looks right. You figure that **** like this would be right from the beginning!

Loosened up all the bed bolts and it didn't move much at all......maybe an 1/8" side to side was all it would shift will all 6 bolts loose. Not nearly enough to align with the cab. Further investigation shows there are pins in the bed to locate it on the frame so it is straight.
Loosened all 8 bolts holding the cab to the frame and was surprised that it moved almost as easily as the bed did and was able to get it aligned and centered with the bed. Looking at the cab mounting points, there is a lot of room for movement and no locationg pins like on the bed.
It all looks perfect now......like it should have BEFORE it left the factory!!!!!!
