    Unless you really know what you are doing with flow rates and such, go to a local place that installs hydro systems on trucks. Call your local city or county garage, someone builds their trucks, who is it?

    The other place would be the people that install truck beds/ dump beds - call your favorite flavor of truck dealer that sells commercial (like f450 and 550) and see who installs that stuff for them.

    Just IMO, flow rates for the pumps, line sizes, what your equipment needs and how you control it all is better left to people that deal with it day in and day out - it's easy to install, picking the parts is the hard part.

    Ditto. We deal with a local manufacturer who customizes, even sells online. They’re called reliablewireproducts.com . They sell and make anything related to wiring harness to hydro control units. You just need to supply spec's and thats it.

    If you do get a system, think about running atf oil , works great when its cold ou.t
