I would go with a convertible barn door over the high lift option. If I had the high lift, I would install a load holding valve/load check/pilot operated check valve on the lift cylinders to prevent the gate from slamming down incase of a hose/valve failure. That same valve is what is on excavator booms, crane outriggers/boom cylinders, etc.

Bobcat Ninja has one http://youtu.be/OWky6hhgxmw
That's the way right there! I would like to have that setup on my dodge and a triaxle.

When you dump, you unlock the gate and raise the gate with the cylinders. To lower, there is an orifice to restrict flow to keep the gate from slamming down as hard. A counterbalance valve could be plumbed in on some I suppose.

Pictured is the standard design for transfers that I have seen for 30+ years.

The tri axle I just bought a truck upfitter shop is charging me $800 to do something similar but not as fancy I want it for dumping stumps and boulders so they dont get hung up.
