    I would add the dump hoist to your truck. Even if you paid to have it installed, it would increase the value of the truck by at least that amount, usually more. Dump trucks are pricy to begin with, and 4x4 or 6x6 dump trucks are rare and very capable ($).

    Default M925A2 Dump Bed Hoist Opinions

    I would have it hauled in unless you have a lot of extra time.

    If you do, I would go with more hoist than the 5x20 or I think you will be disappointed. I want more and mine has dual 5x20 cylinders, and will only dump 11 to 13 ton at 2500psi, depending on how the load is positioned. The truck feels real good and is legal up to around 12 ton. Also plan on building a real tailgate so you can spread, plus a heavier floor, as #2 will warp it nicely, and I bet rip rap will destroy it.

    Sounds like an entire bed change if going front trunnion hoist? Special request for rear bed to frame hinge pics, and if they put anything atop of your truck frame, like spacer wood or another box frame. Speak up how the PTO clears the frame rail and exhaust pipe too. Please and thanks.

    nahanni.jpgThis is the style of box ,but it will only be 12 feet long.6x6 6.jpg I am impatiently waiting for the PTO and will send pics as soon as we try to install ,the pto body is slimmer than the standard 221 and appears to be the same body as an original pto and the air shift and direct mount show as options ,All the info is in online brochures ,was ordered two months ago some parts had to be made. 10 inch frame under the box,1/4 inch hardox floor, hoist mount made to go over transfer case I may go for a 1/2 inch thick rubber strip that gets glued to the frame to keep the box quiet on bumpy roads, not cheap waiting for the price. The back of the frame is getting redone with heavy duty hinges and an apron for a new pintle hitch air hookup and electrical all done this will cost twice what the truck did ,but will make one **** of a truck. Box will be painted to match the truck.!
