If you are willing to go the extra mile with installation, dump kit conversion is the best choice. Dump kits are the only option that matches the highest lifting capacities for the lowest cost while keeping your payload capability, maneuverability and the overall original look of your truck intact.

Assuming you will put the effort in to make your truck the workhorse that finishes the job without a trailer or a bed insert, let’s consider the benefits unique to PIERCE for your dump kit conversion.

What is your trucks weight limit?

How to find your truck’s GVWR or weight limit.

Find your truck’s Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) to know how much load you can haul safely. The GVWR is usually found on a label inside the vehicle’s door frame.

GVWR Vehicle Rating Location

This rating is the max weight your truck can handle, including original weight, fuel, cargo, passengers and anything added such as a dump bed kit. The weight rating should never be exceeded because it is hazardous to the brakes, axle, tires, suspension, and the overall safety of the passengers.

Here is an overview of the installation process including equipment and tools you will need, as well as, the step-by-step process to install the dump bed kit. The PIERCE customer service team is full of experts ready to walk through any difficulties in real time. Just call us at 940-538-5643.

Who will install the Dump Kit?

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:

Self Installed

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 over 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.

Installation Shop Criteria

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”.
