    Crysteel hoists are all i have installed,very rugged units,you buy a kit which includes hoist and pump,i use electric for ease of instalation and see no problems dumping big loads,central hyraulic is probably stronger but like i said i like electric,the kits run anywere from $1000-$1500 and you will need torches and a welder.I found it easier to build a new body around the hoist itself and for the money your spending the steel isn't that much more,just my opinion though.

    the bed was setup to accept a dump kit, it was just never done. They just bolted it down instead. Do they have a website?
