    Not Quite!

    That link has plans you have to BUY! I could take a day trip and buy exactly what I need for about $1400.....but I'm CHEEP, a good fabricator and I have a Fisher Plow and a half tonne of metal pieces kicking around for parts!

    I did do a search before I posted, and none of the threads had exactly what I was looking for, I know how bulletin boards work, and I know how frustrating it is to see the same topic beat to death!

    I just wanted a little Better advice, and I got it!

      Dump plans

      During the early dumping the steering still worked.
      80's Mother Earth news made a dump bed on a half ton pickup, all I remember is that it had two lift cylinders mounted outside of the frame rails and used the trucks power steering box for hydraulic power. They used a three way valve so that when it was not dumping the steering still worked. They added a larger reservoir to the pump .
