    I did a search and you can guess how that went. I want to get a spare angle cylinder and upon checking with CPW, and Discount Plow Parts (Mill Supply), they seem to be offering aftermarket parts for those cylinders. I am requesting replies from personal experience as to the quality and fitment of the aftermarket cylinders, compared to OEM, and possible sources for both. My application is on an UltraMount 8' Pro Plus straight plow.

    I've been totally happy with aftermarket cylinders from SAM. Not to mention saving probably $100 a cylinder
