View Full Version : Pick-up DUMP BED conversion

Has anyone done the conversion to your bed making it a dump bed? Not the installation of a separate dump unit, but the placing of hydraulics under your existing bed? If so, how has it worked out for you?

I have not done it, but seen a truck that had it done.
The bed is not designed to work as a dump. It will twist and flex, resulting in cracks over the wheel opening.
Most dumps have supports that run front to back. If you look at a pickup box, they run side to side, this leaves all the stress on the sides of thr bed.
An ez dumper will save your truck!

for the amount that you will spend your better off putting a dump insert or removing the bed and putting a regular dump on.
