Body alignment from factory wrong?

I special ordered my ranger to suit my needs and wants. It's an 06 STX with NO pannels ligned up. Has any one else had a similar Error happen to them FROM THE FACTORY?

Had no choice. I didnt have a veh to get home with. Got dropped off at the dealership. But it will be covered by "MY" warranty.

I wanted to know if it was a machine error or just a One off chance. I know how to align all of it. I used to work at a body shop. You all know how it is for the "ONLY I WILL WORK ON IT-guys"
But NONE of my pannels lign up. Not even the tail gate or the grill or bumpers.
