Lop-sided 2017 F250 King Ranch..

Hey guys; Anyone ever park on a level surface and notice your truck sitting lower on 1 side vs the other ?
Mine sits 3/4" lower left rear vs right rear (measured concrete to bottom of fender well) and 7/8" lower left front vs right front (same measure point). Looks odd following it down the road...

The fuel tank is on the left side. Was it full of fuel when you measured it? 48 gallons of fuel + whatever the def weighs would be quite an off center load. Now I'm wondering if mine sits lop sided. I'm at about 3/8 of a tank. I'll measure mine before I fuel and then again after and report back what I find.

Full or empty, truck is lop-sided...
Was able to get the shop Foreman to listen (after leaving laundry list of issues with General Manager), and showed him how and where to measure. He allegedly is setting up a visit from Ford Engineers, date TBD. I will advise this forum of outcome.

This has been an issue on these truck since 2011 models. Why has Ford not been able to correct this? It's like they don't know and don't care. Kind of like Chevys sporadic gauge movement. I never noticed it on my 16' until about 5 weeks ago. Its not a big concern but like you said it looks goofy.

You have to be looking pretty close to see the difference but you're right they are a little un-even. To most people 3/4" isn't going to make a lot of difference. I'm not overly concerned with my 2017 F-250 Super Duty Platinum being off a little.
