Something I'm not too sure about...

This is my first truck so bear with me...
07 ranger xl 4x4 (supercab version 4dr)

Alright so i was bouncing through a mud trail on my way home from work and i happened to look back through my drivers mirror and it appeared as if the Cab of my truck and the Box of the truck were moving quite a bit in opposite directions each other and not just what seemed to be a normal amount [to me].

i know that they are two seperate sections mounted to the frame and are not connected to each other directly. the truck from what i felt from the drivers seat was flexing a fair amount and i havent done anything body lift or suspension wise to the truck, so for all intensive purposes its stock.

what im really getting to here is if the movement im noticing is fairly normal when wheelin, ive only gone out a few times in the last 9 months having it. i will mention i have a crossover toolbox that is J bolted securely under the bed rails if that has any affect on this....oh yeah it had a fair amount of tools in it too.

anyone noticed something like this, should i be worried about this? when the truck sits idle on flat ground both sections of the truck are parralell to each other so it doesnt look like i bent anything and nothin seems to be loose...?? please put my mind at ease. or offer a solution.

thanks!

DO a favor for yourself.. hop on youtube, and search up 'ford bed rattle test' I think thats the proper search for it.. they compare all teh different trucks runnign across an uneven surface at medium speeds.. youll see jsut how little maount Ford trucks have, compared to other ones.. I think the worst on there was a GMC (looked like it was going to snap in half..!)



EDIT: Found the link for you.. ENJOY!
