bed adjustment

Ive searched and read through a dozen or so threads that came up, but not a single one mentioned this, so here goes:

how much adjustment is there with the bed ?
mine is slightly slewed on its axis, the passenger side corner by the cab sits out almost an inch, while the drivers side sits even, yet the tires sit just a hair off center in the opposite direction, the drivers side rear tire sits 1/2" deeper into the fender well than passenger.

I know my bed has been removed at least once before I bought my truck, as its original color was Teal, then White, and now it is black.

also, how hard is it to adjust the bed by oneself ?

thanks, my main concern was if there was some adjustment. 1/2 inch is probably all I need as I think I overstated how much out it was by the cab.

so to adjust it, all I would really need to do is loosen the bolts in the bed itself or are there bolts underneath as well ?

just loosen the bed bolts and move the bed to where you want it. there are no bolts under the truck that you need to loosen.

awesome, thank you

I only asked because Ive looked and there are a couple bolts under the truck that seem like they might be attached to the bed.

if u have a bedliner you'll see all the bolts if u take it off but its jsut those inside the bed that you need to loosen then you can adjust it to how you want. I need to do mine too come to think of it lol

I know how you feel, I know Ive needed to adjust my bed for a while, I just dont have the motivation to actually get it started. I have to remove the camper shell, then empty out everything, then remove the bedliner...
uhg...
