I do need to get heavier hydraulic lifts for the lid though. Where did you buy yours if you don't mind me asking?

Here is where I bought the lid's gas lifts for my trailer:
I went with the GGS31-(weight)-I. I have a 150# and a 200#, which is about right with my lid having a rough top tent on it (lid is heavy on it's own). The "I" on the end of the part number comes with a metal fitting, which is what I'd suggest. I'll PM you the contact information that I have. They were about $55 for a pair shipped. Originally the lid had 100# lifts, but the lid didn't open well once the tent was put on top (the lid would stay up, but it was tough to get it going up). Note that if you go up too high, you'll have a problem with getting the lid down, that's why I have a 150 and 200.
You'll also need the mounting hardware, too, located here:
The contact I sent you can help with getting the right one for the lifts.
Let me know if you have questions.
