In Back to Future, Doc Brown tricked out his DeLorean with a hover conversion kit.  That’s cool and all, but how much rock could he haul with it?  If I had a conversion done to my truck, it’d have to be a dump truck conversion like this one. 

This kit turns a standard eight foot pick-up bed into a two-ton dumping monster through the application of hydraulics and some beefed up suspension.  If you have, say, about a grand to burn (and some serious hydraulic know how) this baby can be yours in no time.

Yeah it’s a bit extreme, but that’s the point, isn’t it?  I’ve always wanted a dump truck, and this looks like a good way to get one.  And by “good way” I, of course, mean “completely overboard and insane.”

Note: Yes, you can order the kit from Amazon, but only if you promise not to tell your significant other we told you so.

    If you’re handy you can do it cheaper. Tap into your power steering pump and use it to operate a ram.
