Installing a 1-3/4" bumper discharge
Our department is currently looking into purchasing a used Pierce pumper. The truck a 1990 model and is in excellent shape, looks, runs, drives, and pumps like new! Has a great amount of options. It has a 5" front intake with an LDH storage box recessed into the bumper. The only other option I would like to see on the truck would be a front bumper 1-3/4" discharge. What I am wondering is if anyone on here has ever installed one of these and what might I be getting myself into with this. The biggest reason I am concidering the front discharge is because we have this option on our other truck and it is very handy, we have used it on about every fire call since we have had the truck. I guess we have just been spoiled by it. Anyway let me know your thoughts, thanks.
