Check its not the bed, when I got my 2010 they had to move the bed over by 3/4 of an in it was so off from the factory, check the alignment where the cab meets the bed, use a cardboard straightedge to check the alignment between the two
No excuse for bed being off by more than 1/4" max if that! Even on Fridays!!! lol I wonder if dealerships report anything to Ford so that someone gets yelled at for tolerance issues. I can understand a large amount of weight that may make the bed shift a little but being a 1/2" off from the factory is not cool. I know Ford sells allot of F150s but not an excuse.
What suggestions do you have for me. New 2013 F-150 Limited rear bumper is 3/4 to 1 inch extension more on driver side than passenger side. Dealership tells me it can't be moved to even out both sides. Ford warranty spokesperson tells me to drive to a different dealer for a look at it (many miles away). For the cost of this vehicle one would expect better quality control. I have had an F250, F350, and a 2010 F150 Platinum. None of them had this problem. Also, there is a loud squeal sound when I back out of the garage in the morning. Has anyone else had similar problems and what did you do to resolve the problem when you have a non-responsive dealership?
Mine too but mine was replaced under warranty very early in the truck's life according to Oasis so the dealer botched it.
There's 6 large nuts on the back side, either side of the hitch if you have that. I loosend one on each side then snugged it back up, then losseend the other two. Then just loosen the one side at a time just enough to allow the bumpuer to move, put it where you want it and snug it back up. Once you've got it right, tighten them all. Took me maybe 20 minutes.
