Bed kit recommendations for '70 C10 LWB

So I pulled the trigger for the "deluxe" finished oak bed kit and angle rails from Brothers, and was invoiced for $167 shipping. Then they called me this morning and wanted ANOTHER $164 on top of that because "oh, our online ordering system doesn't account for over-sized packages" or some such. I told them to cancel the order, no way I'm paying $331 for shipping on a $700 order, not in this universe.

I wanted to go with that option because everything was pre-drilled, it's the first time I've ever messed with a bed kit (OK, this is my first C10, too), and I didn't really want to mess it up as a learning exercise.

So I'm back to square 1. I want oak, and based on the searching I've done, short of the Brothers kit, I'm going to have to align and drill everything myself.

I'd like some recommendations from folks who've had good experiences with a company that doesn't rape you on shipping. Any suggestions? I'm near Year One in Georgia, if anyone has a positive experience with their kit.
