Factory dents????

Anyone else have a F250/350 that has dents in the doors where the door handles are? Never paid much attention before, but recently I glanced down the sides of my truck and noticed the dents. I am thinking that the machine or person at the factory who installed the door handles into the doors may have used to much force.

Mine look like that a little bit, but I think its more from where my 10yo son & my 8yo daughter push the door closed.

I'm tellin' 'em all the time, push the door closed at the handle, not below it or beside it.

I tried to take a picture, but it doesn't show up. I just checked out my neighbors 350 and he has them also. Now he's bummed out. My truck is pretty straight, other than the dents just below the handles.

Lesson learned...The first used truck I bought the roof was all messed up...He must've hauled some pretty big stuff. Ever since then I always make it a special point to look at the roof. Never noticed a dent below the door handle, I don't think mine has it, I think I have found all the other minor imperfections. I will have to take a look tomorrow.
