2014 F250 King Ranch - Level

I walked out to my brand new King Ranch this morning and it's crooked. The drivers side is sitting almost a full inch lower then the passenger side. Measured on the front and the back.

I'm pretty confident I would've noticed this at the dealership. I have not checked it out sitting somewhere other than my driveway (which will do soon). I did drive it around after noticing it but it still sat that way when I got home.

Has anybody heard of this? Is this a feature I don't know about? Like it lowers so it's easier to get into? LOL

I have read about this and it has to do with the weight of the fuel and DEF tanks causing the truck to lean due to the left hand side placement.

Mine is about 1/2 inch lower on the driver side as well, but both my tanks were full when I measured.

Think of all the extra stuff on the driver side, and if the suspension is exactly the smell both sides.....well, we all get the picture.

You are not alone- mine is a full inch lower on the driver front...back side is exactly level. Also on my truck, the cab is not in line with the bed. When you sight down the side of the truck, the contour lines are not aligned as you look from cab to bed or vice versa, if that makes any sense. It annoys me to no end, but I don't know of any real cure for it....??

Have you had a spray in bed liner done on your truck? Line-x or any of them have to take the bed bolts out to spray and when I got mine back it was crooked and the owner of Line-x told me there was no way possible and there is no adjustment in them. I took it to a body shop and they looked at it and adjusted it back right, so there are adjustments that can be made. It annoyed me so bad and that's why I ended up going by a body shop.

Swampfox- yes, I have a Line X. However, the bed and cab were out of alignment before the bed was sprayed. It seems in my case that if the driver side front of my cab could be raised some, it would align with the bed and level out the front of the truck at the same time.

Mine sits a 1/2" lower on the driver side too. I have caught myself looking at every newer model F250 and F350 I see in parking lots and 99% of them are like this. Some are worse than others thats for sure... Very aggravating but not an easy fix...

Some cinder blocks on the passenger side of the truck bed would be a start

Oh I see now, my bed was off side to side. You could look down one side of the truck and easily see it was off on one side compared to the other.

I would raise hell at the dealership $60k for a crooked truck, umm NO.
I think to many people are just living with it if everyone *****ed at Ford something might get done.
