New truck pulls to right?

12 I've just turned 3k miles. Pulls to the right real bad now. Haven't hit anything or taken it off road. Something from factory? Anyone else noticed this or am I fooling myself and just need to get an alignment?

Tire pressure is good? Don't rely on the sensors. If its not the tire pressure I'd take it to the dealer.

Took it to the dealership today. The tech put it on the rack and said everything was within specs. I said let's go for a ride and you will see. So I let him drive, and it started to pull. He tells me it's the crown of the road and the truck does that. I couldn't believe it. I must of had idiot on my head and didn't know it. So he tells me he can order a shim or something but dosent think it will change anything. Needless to say, I got my keys and left. Off to another dealership I guess.

Try changing tires. I had the same problem with a low mileage sprinter van. Pulled so bad I was the only one in the company that would drive it. Got an alignment, changed brakes, rotors, struts, rack&pinion, rotated tires. . . Nothing helped. After 10000 miles of miserable driving I had to change the worn out bfg's. Problem solved! Never suspected them cause they had less than 1000 miles when it started, and rotating didnt change it.
