Default Bed height different?

Measuring to order a leveling kit for my Ram. I found the left rear was only about 3/4" higher than the left front, and the right rear another 3/4" or so higher than the left rear.

The fronts were about the same, so the right rear was about 1-1/2" higher than the right front...which is what I expected.

Looking from the rear at the cab and the line the bed forms against it below the window, it seems the truck does list slightly to the left. The bed is empty, and there is about a 1/2 tank of fuel.

Is this side to side difference at the bed usual or might there be something going on.

Mine is the same way. Very common with the gas tank on that side.
