Recently I posted on the actual installation and this may or may not need to be reflected there but as a separate article I'm showing the actual cost of installation. I bought the unit from Summit which was a 4 port electrical controlled valve port. I already had the single remote with handle operation which as a factory kit. With the installation I also had adequate wiring fittings and I ran a wire to the switch so the unit would on be power with switch in on position. This is important as the unit can be switched off but one would have to remember to rocker it to the center each time and I thought this might be a problem causing solenoid failure by mistake. Anyway the cost does not show transportation to and from the hydraulic store for line " precise" fittings. When installing I had to be very particular in location for clearance of the lift arms. I also remove brackets not needed from the center point..left a small bracket for my slow moving sign. This is very critical as I have he hydraulic cylinder. I've seen post already where folks did damage by not observing this. There is any number of approaches to installing. I did use some extensions to my factor lines as I didn't want to cut or destroy the butt face fittings. From speaking with the store the butt face fittings are the highest quality type to avoid leakage but mine were factory and if you have those steel lines made up, it's special expenses for welding. They can install them as fitting to existing fittings. Anyway my ticket was $601.98. I save about $50 by finding some connectors on ebay rather than retail.....Very pleased with setup. I could easily modify my bracket...weld an extension and make a 6-8 port setup...if needed...just cost of valve body and fittings....but the think the dual will work...I have my center link and my hydraulic lines for the grapple outlet which is forward. I can easily disconnect those and use two other items if necessary...the quick link will stay in position...I'm passing this along for the custom type folks if they are interest...
