Mine does it too. No cracks or problems with mine. My door was ok, but my bumper was "smashed" up into the headlight and was maybe 4-5 inches different on either side. I just think the suspension is so stiff and the truck is so heavy it has to flex somewhere. Even the older F150's do it pretty bad. If everything looks good I would go with it.

EDIT: Matter of fact, if you look really close at the picture in my avatar you might be able to see it.
