V2000 Series Installation Guide as PDF
Your Viper Lift crane has been engineered to install quickly and easily. Its unique design eliminates the need for modification to your vehicle's body or frame. Only a small hole drilled in the receiver is necessary to install a Viper Lift crane (this hole will not affect your receiver's performance when towing).
With the included handling arm, smaller cranes (V1000 and V1500 series) can be installed by 2 operators. We recommend 3 operators for larger cranes (V2000 series or custom cranes). With a seasoned mechanic, your Viper Lift crane should be installed in 2 hours or less.
V1000 Series: approx. 360 lbs.
V2000 Series: approx. 490 lbs.
V1500 Series: approx. 295 lbs.
