You could shorten the chassis a bit, so that the rear axle is centered under the bed. Short of that, just about any '30's truck bed could be used on it.

or make a wood stake body.

i think it's important to acknowledge your observation, and next time you may make a different styling change. "learning curve". and it's just as important to know what you don't like, so that you can create what you do like.

I think short looks fine. It changes the over all look from stock. It may look good with a wood side piece to take the bed up to the level of the hood. Wood side piece like in the 50 Ford kit below. I'd make it from bass wood.
