You can do it yourself for $1,000 if you are decent at fabrication. The hoist costs about $800-$900. OR Just go to a shop while winter is hear and ask what they would charge to put a couple hydro pistons on there and hinge it at the rear. Thats a great price too. I was looking at 3500's tonight for the possibility of selling my 2500. Didn't have a lot of luck.......may just convert my 2500, may just not do anything at all........who knows.
