I have 1 extra pump and 2 extra 8 inch cylinders.....I was wondering how I could setup them up to lift or tilt the bed of my truck...How and where would I mount my cylinders and what else would I need? This is an 87" mazda B2200 extra-cab. Can anybody post a few pictures on this and explain with full detail??? Thanks in advance!!!!

You will need a Z-rack, or build one.
Also depending on where you wants the pumps to be setup.
Inside the bed, which mean you will have to cut it out, or underneath the bed.

Well, depending on how you have the setup inside the bed, you can have a tilt bed or a dancing bed.
If you want a dancing bed, than yes, you will need a Z-rack.
But you dont need one for a tilt bed.
Hope this helps.

They already sell the Z-racks made. Just ready for it to be welded onto to the insides of the frame.

i dont know of anyone that sells a weld in z rack, i dont think they have sold them sence the 90s. do lots of R and D befor you make or do anything cause it can be dangerous and you can really fuck your truck up. best advise i can give is measure twice and cut once. . . . . . .look through the forum on this site there was an oold post about it thats how i built mine.
