Check the contact points where the bed its bolted to the frame. My two front connection points were rusted thrugh and had become disconnected. The other 4 connection points are fine, so its not going anywhere, but the bed wiggles a little bit, and it seems to be moody (worse at times than others)...its annoying as hell! I try to keep weight in the front of the bed to keep it from wiggling. Im having a friend weld it in place in a couple weeks soon. Just give a look, where the bed hits the frame and make sure all 6 points (i have 6, 3 on each frame rail) are still firm
