Now that you have decided on the right PIERCE dump kit it will need to be installed. The installation can be done by yourself or a trusted installer in your area. Here is an overview to help you decide who will undertake the installation:

  • Read the installation manual before proceeding.
  • Disconnect the vehicle battery before welding.
  • All wires must be supported by the truck frame. Wires connected to the bed are hazardous.
  • When raising the bed, use an overhead hoist or body props. Be aware, injury can occur if the bed is not properly secured. Never leave the bed unattended when in the raised by a hoist or body props.
  • Only weld at the rear of the chassis frame. Do not weld anywhere forward of the rear spring hangers in order to prevent cracks from developing in the frame and possible weak spots during the welding process.
  • Never exceed the weight limit of your equipment. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for more information.

Now that you have decided on the right PIERCE dump kit it will need to be installed. The installation can be done by yourself or a trusted installer in your area. Here is an overview to help you decide who will undertake the installation:


If you choose to do the installation yourself, the following are expertise required to complete the job.

  • Mechanical – You will have to follow our manual’s directions and use mechanical skills in the event the directions do not cover specific considerations. For example, some bed years have components like the fuel filler that may need to be moved so that the bed can close and not flatten the filler.
  • Electrical – Power and ground connections will be routed directly to the battery Hydraulics – The hydraulic pump will be installed, fluid added to the reservoir and wired.
  • Welding – Some cutting of the rear frame hinges may be required during installation. We recommend following all safety procedures that are listed in the manual; viewing all dump kit related videos; having an extra pair of hands when lifting the bed and steel parts. Call us with any questions before or during installation. We are happy to help.


If you choose not to do the hydraulic dump kit installation yourself, we have found body shops and machine/welder shops typically have the expertise required. Basically, any shop installing flat beds has the expertise.

The key to finding a reputable shop is research. While the following criteria does not guarantee a positive experience, it can help identify shops with experience and a history of good work.

There are many resources for best practices when choosing the right body shop you can check out our favorites here: Angie’s list, “Advice on finding a reputable body auto body shop” and The ASE, “How to choose the right body shop”.
