Wide-out emergency parts kit

I just picked up my original Western Wide-out emergency parts kit and since so many people ask what to carry I thought I would show you what I got.

Here is what they list as contents:
Parts bag (with nice Western Logo)
Winter hat with logo (tuke)
Western zipper pull (key chain thingy)
1 quart plow fluid
1 tube dielectric grease
1 motor relay
1 67" hose
1 78" hose
1 38" hose
1 32" hose
1 16" hose 1/4 (lift ram)
1 trip spring
1 5/8" X 2 clevis
1 5/8" X 3 1/2" clevis
1 5/8" eye-bolt kit (used with spring)
1 5/8" wing stop bolt kit
1 1 X 4" clevis
1 1 X 3-5/16" clevis
1 3/8" u bolt with 2 nylock nuts (for lift chains to a frame)
1 90 degree short #6 ORB to JIC elbo
1 90 degree long #6 ORB to JIC elbo
1 45 degree #6 ORB to JIC elbo
1 5/32" hair pin clip
1 "Snow Happens" sticker

I added my LED headlight but that does not come in the kit from Western, $49 from Canadian tire.

I plan to add a nighthawk bulb too and of course a few tools so I can actually do some repairs now that I have the parts. Something else I am working on is a simple ready rod emergency blade lifter. It's just a threaded rod with hooks and a crank handle for lifting the blade when the hydraulics fail. I know you can just push the blade up with a snow pile but sometimes when you don't have a snow pile you need such a thing. This works so much better than fighting with a bottle jack and actually holds the blade up so you don't hit bottom going over bumps. I will post a photo when I finish it.
