It sounds like your back cab mounts are bad allowing the cab and bed to make contact.

It's your cab bushings more than likely. Energy suspension makes a nice replacement set, that's what my dad put on his OBS.

Typical cummins owner.

I think the name of the show was Ax Men. It was on the history channel.

I think you are thinking of the Rygards. We do know them and have worked with them but we were not actually on the show.
