    What a weekend. After doing my research and considering my budget, i bought a new ez dumper. The web site stated that the install should take two hours. So i went back to the shop and started my two hour install. Two hours slowly turned into 4 hours. On the following day (Sat.) I still could not get power to the unit. After checking all of the grounds and other connections still no luck. What gives? I went back up to the dealer and had them take a look at the unit. Come to find out that ez dump has recently changed there motors and wiring setup, but FAILED TO CHANGE ANY OF THERE DIRECTION BOOKLET. Finally after a very frustrating weekend the dumper is now up and running. :angry:

    Th ez dumper was $2064.00 this was a good buy since the price of steel has just jumped. I was getting quotes from other dealers of $2380 to 2450. I think that i did okay. And i will work on some pics.

    Just paid $3,100 for the stainless steel e-z dumper. Going to have it installed tomorrow. My installer/dealer said it would be around 4 hours - $300.00

    What did e-z dumper upgrade on the motor? I would like to know which one I got?

    Not sure what the old motor was like. The directions did not contain a spec. sheet. The only way that you would be able to tell is if the ground is attached to the motor itself, then it is the new one.

    Also, beaware that the dump control is not water proof and these units at my dealer are stored outside in the elements. When i open up the controler to test the wires it was like a water fall. I do have a new controler on order. The old one does work but just the thought upset me. good luck.

    I just recently bought an ez dumper too. Mine took longer to mount as well (chevy 2500hd). At first the motor stuck on even when lowering. Turned out the solenoid was sticking. I believe it was coroded on the inside from sitting out. Bad thing is that the solenoids are under the dump. If they fail, how do you fix it? Luckily mine failed so that it was always on. Ez dumper covered the part but i had to pay shipping, which kinda pricy. There is a little surface rust on mine where the stake pockets are. The rust kinda stains the truck, so i'm going to have to do something about that. I was thinking about rubbercoating the bottom and outsides to prevent this. Have you had this problem? My truck is white so it stands out. Good luck with your purchase.
