    Any information out there on Meyer upgrading the E-88 hydraulic unit to the E-68 free of charge to the original owner?

    If Im not mistaken that was offered but that was during the original warranty period though.

    Have your dealer call. This is not a warranty recall. It is also not an up-grade. My understanding (according to the Meyer Rep at service school) is someone never received proper FCC clearance/approval for the E-88 controllers and they have to replace all those units with "legal" ones.

    I just got this "upgrade" done. My PCM was fried, a new one was about $1000, so my dealer did this. The parts were covered by Meyer, I had to pay labor, less than $400. The new wired controller feels a lot cheaper and you loose the ARM mode....one of the main reasons I bought this model plow. You do still have the ALM mode, which is pretty worthless for me. My dealer was totally clueless on the loss of the ARM mode and any warrenty extension, if any. I've had this plow 5 years now.
