We like to say that…
“There are 2 types of frames out in the world. Ones that break and ones that are reinforced. Which one would you like?” Once we do our #DWFrameReinforcement it’s guaranteed for life by DWS.
After installation comes Rear Suspension. Custom leaf springs & helper springs,
The spring shop does not just add leaf springs. They add custom helper springs as well. Plus they relocate the helper pad to come in contact w/ the helper spring sooner.
If your truck is a 3/4 ton they typically don’t come with helper springs or top overload pads.
They are a must. We provide them when we install. You will void the warranty if you operate the truck with no helper springs & pads.
If your truck is a 1 ton more than likely it does come with helper springs and helper pads, but we are going to add custom helper springs and relocate the helper pads.
The spring shop has specific instructions from us to have our pivot pin a certain height. For the unit to perform properly.
VERY IMPORTANT DETAILS PLEASE READ…
*Truck must have a 10,000lb GVWR or we can’t install it.
*No Dodge 2500 w/ Rear Coil Suspension. We can not install any kind of unit on this truck.
*No rear Gas tanks. The Lil Herc needs that real estate. Some clients are forced to purchase a Mid Ship Tank and remove the Rear Tank and relocate it.

Higher Standard Under Body
We used cutting-edge CAD technology to create the design to build the strongest, most versatile wheel lift on the market. Our team constructs each piece, by hand, to ensure solid construction and strength at all connections. We have strategically reinforce areas that are known to have issues in other designs, to prevent weak spots from occurring. We also strategically reinforce the truck frame before mounting the Lil Hercules™ wheel lift. Lil’ Hercules comes as either standard “L” arm-wheel grid, or the self-loading Herc-O-Matic.
Our Lil Hercules™ product line is the leader in underbody wheel lifts, showing up the competition at every turn. Despite its incredibly strong & durable construction, our Lil Hercules™ boasts a 5,000lb lift capacity, 10,000lb towing capacity, and a 70″ reach capacity, Our ultra-tough design allows for heavy duty workload from a lighter duty vehicle, without compromising the vehicle’s comfort. Our units enable its clients to kill 2 birds w/ one stone. Transforming their personal truck into a work truck at anytime they choose. $aving time is making $$$.
The Lil Hercules™ features a 12 volt pump with an 8 minute duty cycle (that’s 4 TIMES stronger than industry standard issue). All of our pivot points are fabricated in-house, and constructed with our unique two-piece hexagonal nut-and-bolt design pin system, and our signature oil-infused bronze bushings. These require less maintenance than other pivot point systems, because the bushings literally sweat oil. Our pivot points are the strongest on the market, and will never corrode and freeze up. They last longer, require less maintenance, and are backed by a lifetime warranty. That means you spend your time on the road making money, instead of in the shop, paying for repairs.
If you have a Lil Hercules™ or Herc-O-Matic installed on the back of your truck, you’ll enjoy our adjustable nut-and-bolt pivot pin. Instead of the traditional construction of a one-piece 1018 steel pin for the pivot head on a wheel lift, we use a two-piece, heavy-duty hexagonal bolt that can be tightened into its nut. That means not having to come into the shop and pay for service and replace that little pin every few years. Instead, as it loosens, you can quickly and easily give it an adjustment, and carry on carrying on.
