Re: [EVDL] S10 on Ebay

Do a google search and you will find lots of them but they are intended to
turn your pickup into a dump truck, not give you battery access. They do
give you that access but they seem like overkill to me.

EV America used to sell them but now I can't find them on their website.

<http://www.ev-america.com/>

The S10 Forum has a lot of discussions about tilt beds, mostly pics and discussions of how they did it themselves. Some good links, though.

<http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f207/any-one-sell-tilt-bed-kits-366372/>

Examples:

<http://www.dumpkit.com/>
<http://www.dumpbeds.com/Plans.html>

There's a lot of old discussions on the EV List as well, notably Cor's description of how he did it.



HTH,

Doug

Also, consider Wayne at Electric Blue. Bet he's perfected the
hardware for this after doing a couple dozen or so.
