The PIERCE Stock Dump Bed Kit fits Chevy/GMC trucks. With 4,000 lbs of possible lifting strength, the PIERCE dump hoist kit can make your work truck more effective at home or on the job. The kit is designed to allow the truck bed to remain the same height and go undetected when installed properly.
The following is included in the stock dump kit: All hydraulic and electric components, cross members, scissor mounting hardware, bed hinges, pump/valve assembly, wiring, control, cylinder, and a 200 AMP breaker. For a complete list of parts view the manual above.
Newer truck beds 2018+ are manufactured diﬀerently that 2017 models. The main issue is the way the truck bed is fitted around the chassis. This rounded design causes the bed to not be able to be lifted unless the bed is several inches away from the bed. We are currently developing more kits for newer models.

You can mount the pump at any location you desire as long as it is clear of any moving parts. Most installations have the pump mounted to the side of the frame behind the truck cab. Some people have even mounted it inside the cab.
The Stock Bed kit comes with a fuel kit – a 90° elbow to redirect the fuel line (which is optional) and a fuel bracket that bolts to the side of the frame. You must ensure a downhill flow to avoid fuel spillage during fueling.
A gooseneck trailer SHOULD NOT be pulled with a truck that has a converted dump bed.
A bumper pulled trailer can be used; however, you will want to pin the front of the bed down (this is not currently supplied with the kit) with a weldable Pierce Twist Lock (not included).
NOTE: On the Stock Bed kit you will have to both drop down and deepen the receiver 2 – 3 inches towards the cab.
Pierce does not currently license installers. The dump kit comes with instructions and we provide instructional videos¬†here. Please note:¬†the Light Duty and Medium Duty kits will require some welding skills. We have found some best practices when choosing someone to install the dump kit.”
