Truck Box Offset???

Does anyone have this problem? My box on my truck sits to the driver side more than to the passenger side. So my box it flush with the cab on the driver side, and sits in a little bit on the passenger side. This is when looking from the back of the truck. Its probably not a big deal and has been that way since i got it, but i just noticed it the other day and it is buggin the $hit out of me. Does anyone else have this going on???

dont think so. waiting for my oasis to get back, not sure if that will tell me tho. I bought it from my cousin who worked at ford. said it only had one owner before me, and all he did was drive to denver and back ( 100miles ). I think i would be pretty hard to just bent the frame. the truck has never been off road, beside in the hay field .

Frame doesnt really have to be bent to cause this. It doesnt take much "diamond" in a truck frame to cause what you are seeing. And diamond doesnt take much of a jolt to cause.
This is how you tell if you have "diamond".
Look at your front bumper and see if it sits a little further back on either side. It could be as little as 1/16" or 1/8". If so then you need to take it to a body shop that has a frame machine and get it fixxed. It can improve tire wear and fuel mileage by getting it fixxed.

so is this something that comes from factory, or what causes it???? and do you know how much it costs to get fixed??? also ford bumpers never stay where they are suppost to, can that put it on there frame machine and tell if it has diamond???? and thanks for the help.
