Default What would cause my bed to be about 1/4"-1/2" closer

To my cab on one side?

Car faxed it before purchase and there were zero accidents. I noticed the other day the pass side of the bed is a little closer to the cab then the driver side. I though it was the bed liner, but then I looked at it from the side and sure enough, it is a little closer.. roughly a 1/4"-1/2" closer.. what would cause that??

could it be from flexing it? And remember, carfax is for reported accidents. I wouldn't worry too much in my opinion, As long as it doesnt look like its going down the road sideways you should be good. check the body bolts and the bushings though

could just be shifted, you can loosen the bolts and readjust the bed accordingly.
