Here we go!
This is the Pierce-Arrow 2ton Hydraulic Dump Bed Conversion Kit sold by Northern Tool. its a universal kit, so its going to require some modifications and adjustments, which we'll figure out as we go along!
At the same time i am replacing my worn out trailer hitch with a new Class V hitch from Rock Auto (Curt #15300), new rear spring hangars & spring bushings, and im replacing the float in the front tank and the strainer for the rear tank. Also need to fix an exhaust hangar and fix the trailer wiring! So lots of little maintenance issues to resolve. I also need to re-wire & replumb the water/meth injection since the system wont work as is, now that the bed will move. So lots of stuff going on here!
1-24: removing bed, cleaning up frame, repairs to tanks & exhaust, new hitch
30-50: building my own bed hinges
51-80: installing dump system
81-90: filler neck issues
92-129: new tilting bumper + brackets
130-139: water/meth injection mods
140-150: rear bumper finished
You can follow along with the install of this over on FSB, starting here. It will make more sense if you do, at least.
Finished and working as of 9-18.
