Bent Box


I have a 2008 Ford Ranger XLT 4X4 that I have had for 4 months. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that when looking from behind the truck the box seemed to be lower on the passenger side where the box meets the cab. A week ago something else caught my eye... when looking at the truck from the front you can see the box sticking out on the passenger side about .5 inch where the box meets the cab and it is pushed in on the drivers side about the same, it is almost like it is warped. I can not really figure out how i managed to do this, but does any one know if this is a fixable problem. Can a body shop straighten this out?

Take it to Ford and tell them to fix it. It's still under warranty.
