    Hey guys my name is Alex but everybody calls me Doc. Just thought I would introduce myself as I'm a new 2017 tundra owner. I previously had a Tacoma and am a member of the brother forum (tacomaworld) i reside in Ohio just north of Columbus in a small town called Crestline. I do have a question about bed wobble/shake. It seems that the bed of my DC wiggles like jello going down the road. When I go over a set of railroad tracks it looks like the bed is gonna derail lol. Just wondering if this is a common thing or if there is something actually wrong. I've checked and retorqued the bed bolts and everything is tight. Any insight would be great. I'm looking forward to meeting the people on this site and can't wait for the debauchery and shenanigans to go along with it!!

    Welcome to the forum. How did you get Doc out of Alex? Curious minds want to know, haha.

    Bed flex is normal in Tundras because of its frame design (open c-channel in the rear). It's more pronounced in longer bed than shorter bed. You should be glad that you didn't get a DCLB (long bed). Design is deliberate, for hauling/towing. Once you load up your truck bed, flex should be negligible.

    Welcome from TN!

    Just so you know, we call my wife Doc on here LOL so anytime I allude to "doc and I" I'm talking bout my wife ;)
    As for bed bounce, only thing that's worked for me is either putting a couple sandbags in the back or getting some aftermarket shocks. (Toytec resi's did it for me)

    Well my last name is Daugherty. Pronounced dockerty. The Irish way lol. I've had plenty of half ton trucks with 6 foot boxes and I realize they are built to move and flex around. I just thought maybe this was on the excessive side of things. Trust me no gripes or bitchin and moaning about the truck lol. I was just curious about it.

    I been telling myself that I'm not gonna mod this truck for a while but I'm already looking at some more fox 2.0 with resi's like I have on my jk. I'm at the realistic point now and just can't live with a stock vehicle for long!!

    Welcome bud. I mean we get a little flex in our beds but not to the point you can describe it as jello. I barely notice any unless on really really rough roads.

    Thanks for having me!! I can see mine wiggle and bounce quite a bit. But then again it might just be me being paranoid. It does get better when there's weight in the bed for sure. Might just have to put some sand bags in the bed or quit looking in the rear view mirror haha

    Welcome Doc. A sway bar might help? I'm running Fox 2.5 rears and a sway bar. So, I've got no idea what you're talkin' 'bout.:cheers:
