Better bed sliders for 70's models?

The bed in our '73 Safari is difficult to pull out. The mechanics of it are not designed to be pulled out with minimal friction, and I find it a bit of a struggle.

Has anyone modified their bed with modern ball-bearing sliders? I see vids of new AS's where the couch pullout just glides effortlessly.
