1- I have a Gator HPX and I can not get the latch to activate on the dump bed (manual). Any pointers to get it unstuck?

2- The rear shocks are shot. The bed is banging on something down under. They are quite expensive from a dealer, are there after market ones that will work?

Thx

Welcome aboard!

No suggestions with respect to item 1.

Item 2... I do remember someone using load leveling shocks for an automotive application recently for some model of Gator. Perhaps search the forum as it was within the last 3 months. They basically called Monroe (or similar) with the extended & compression lengths along with mounting details. The application was for a Dodge/Chrysler minivan if I remember correctly.

Generally JD does a great job of preventing their suppliers from selling replacement parts directly to protect their lucrative replacement parts business.

If you happen to find something, please remember to come back and share with the community.

Added in edit: See this link Monroe Shock for HPX
