crooked bed

So this has been bothering me for months now. I didn't notice when I bought the truck but my bed sits about an inch higher on the driver's side. Driver's side wheel well measures 36", passenger side is at 35". Body lines on the pass side line up, the drivers side doesn't. It's painfully noticable, and has been bugging the crap out of me lately. Carfax indicated no wrecks when I bought the truck and nothing I have done would cause the problem. Any ideas? Anyone else have this problem?

Pretty much. Snapped a pic with my phone.





From what I could see underneath the bed looked like it was laying flat. Maybe something is up with one of the factory lift blocks?

to me that would probably be an indication it was in a wreck or some how the frame is bent. Mine is/was the same way when i bent the frame

Nope, never. Oh well. It's not TOO noticable I don't think, or atleast thats what I'll tell myself.
