    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.

    That's the way right there! I would like to have that setup on my dodge and a triaxle.

    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.
