Yes I did, and yes I do.

I have extra upper and lower plates. I even have an extra bag you can use for mock up. I also have a "bag jig" that bolts in place of the bag so you can build the brackets with the bag fully compressed.

You will be in the shop for quite a while getting that bed straight. As rough as it is, was it a work truck before? I do like them low; I have a '67 C10 that is bagged and clipped with 20's that lays the rockers on the ground.

Believe it or not thats the straightest bed I could find for the truck. The bed that came on the truck was a lot worse. This bed isn't all that bad, just has a few dents coming from the inside since they are angle wall beds. You can tell they put something in the bed and didn't strap it down and let it slide into the sides. But I'm not doing the bodywork. I don't do that.

The difference between my bed and yours, is that your bed would be hard to find because everyone wants it. Mine is hard to find because people crush my bodystyle truck on a daily basis.

Have you ever messed around with unequal control arm length to try and even out the camber when in the "labomba" mode?

Most of the time you can't go any more positive on the camber while that low or you'll hit the inside of the fenders. Might get a little bit more, but not much...
Looks good TM, you're going the wrong way, but looks good.

I'm messing with it now. I'm designing a new front suspension that will get less camber change throughout the travel. Something around 5 degrees laid out, 1 or 0 all the way up. Also narrower so I can turn like that.
