Measure the eye to eye length of the stock brackets for your closed length, give or take a 1/2".
You only need 6 to 8 inches of travel to dump the bed.

Mines 2200 lbs. That's not required but it is where I found the deal.
I'd shop around.
Here's one from Northern Tool.

I would think if the bed can hold 800 lbs you would want that???

Plus the leverage is reversed short stroke to long travel right?

I'm not sure how the rate the lift limits Dooms? But I'm guessin there would be some sort of equation that includes the angle and stroke??

the link posted by fab does not look anything like the stock one on my carryall 272. It is a stock unit. I can also say that with me sitting in the front edge of the bed (about 260) it will not even move. I have seen another carryall with an electric over hydraulic set up. looked factory as well from a 96. that thing would dump a whole bed stacked with firewood with no problem. downside is that it had torn many of the welds apart under the bed from all the force.

Here's mine ...The lift is from a john Deere gator..these lifts are way to pricey about 800.00 new and 3-4 hundred used on e-bay. I got lucky and got two of these off craigslist for 30.00 .....they have a 1200lb rating and about 7 inch's of travel.
The lifts from Northern look like a way better deal.

Works greats....It's dumped every thing Ive had in the bed so far...rocks,boulders,wood,dirt,my 250lb kid.......:
