I think they call it OCD, I had to get the front bumper straight. Got it done today at the dealer's body shop under warranty.
I know there was one other guy on this site that got his done. Looking at the truck; the left side had a 2 inch gap compared to almost a flush driver side

Anyone else getting it looked at?

WTF DC...Most likely built on a Monday...found an inspection sheet in the glove box dated on a Monday (my head hurts on Mondays ever since I turned 30. that was 20 years ago) .....my luck

They did mention it had a adjustment up and down but not back and forth; it was close enough that I couldn't tell on the back and forth
I should of took some photos; once someone on this site pointed it out I kept looking at it (very noticeable)

The back bumper is off by a 1/10 of an inch too. I had the dealership fix both the front and back bumper. I think all the Rebels have a bumper misalignment, because I looked at 5 others on the lot and they were all the same.

There is no way to do it yourself, its the bracket that needs to be bent. One guy did push his bumper against a tree to fix it though.

It is really easy to tell if its crooked all you have to do is stick your fingers between the bumper and the head light on the passenger side. For my mine I could stick my fingers half way through on the passenger side, and not at all on the driver side.

It simply just has to look the same and have an even gap all the way around

I guess I am OCD as well mine sticks out further on the passenger side than the drivers and also has about 3x the gap under the headlight that the passenger side, mine is going in next week for this, the axle recall, and also my passenger side ram box will not open, you can feel the key turning the lock mech on the inside but when you press the know it doesnt unlatch. I wish they were as simple as the ones on my traded in 2012 2500hd where, three years with no problems this truck cost just as much, oh ram........
