    I'm having a dump box fabed up for a chassis we just bought, and we want to have a two way dump gate so you can dump the normal way (hinged at the top) and so you can drop the gate like a pickup truck (hinged at the bottom)
    We have two dumps like this know made by Rugby.
    But I can't find the similarly hardware to have one built like this, also need the linkage to operate the gate from the cab.
    You would think you could buy a kit or a used gate.
    The fab shop that is doing the work said it would be no problem to make at first, now that they look at it closer its a different story.
    Live and learn.
    I need to get this soon to get it to the paint shop and have it set to plow, so any help would be great.
    Thanks
    Dan

    I seen a set the other day online ,seemed like 300. bucks or so. It was a kit. Now I can`t recall where it was. I do know I was searching "dump trailer " parts.... and Bri-Mar ,then a huge shop with a website showed up in the search. We use Konig Body in Rock Island, IL. They have all that stuff with good prices.
