bed flex-flexing

hey guys i tried searching on this, but came up with way too many results that had nothing to do with the subject. Hopefully someone can help me out. Recently i've noticed that the front of my bed is bulging toward my cab. At first it was slight, but now looking at it today it is making contact with the rubber stoppers that are attached to the back of my cab. Is there anyone with this problem? and if so, what do I have to do to correct it? thanks in advance.

If you leave your tailgate down a lot the sides will start bulging or flaring out. And the only time my front portion under the slider was flexing forward, was when I tied down my quad up against it.

I'm thinking the same thing, only way i have seen this is tying up something pushing against the front of the bed like a bike or a quad.

It is under the slider. I do tow my bike with it, so I guess that is the cause. I guess I should by wheel chocks or something to get it away from the front of the bed when I tie it down. Any way of fixing it, or not worth it? This sucks.

Yea, get a wheel chock for the floor, and always make sure you use a set of rear straps to pull it towards the rear of the truck and that will relieve the pressure from the front.

You can fix it, but you will probably have to remove the bed.
