    Easy bed squeak fix!

    Not sure if this is a common problem but the front of my bed got bent forward enough that it was rubbing on the back of my cab so that it squeaked pretty loud at every bump. I haul a lot of material including firewood so the front panel got pushed forward. I was trying to figure out how to pop it back in shape without removing the bed and got the bright idea of pushing a deflated bike inner tube into the gap between the bed and cab and inflating it till it was returned to the right shape. Took just a few tries and it popped back out.

    I had to do the same idea with mine, my brother borrowed my truck to move furniture and way over ranked the ratchet straps. It bent the bed all the way to the cab. I got a 1x6 and just basically pushed it from the driver side to the passenger side to pop it out.
