    I just took the plow off the truck today after a long night, and i realized that there is alot of fluid on the main lift arm. It is coming from the main seal, so im assuming thats the problem. The plow is only a year old, so is it still under warranty? If not how hard is this to fix?

    should be warranty...if not you have 2 options.
    1. replace the hole the cylinder assm
    2. replace the packing,,,inspect the piston for chips and dents, scratches
    replacing the seals,,,,,can be tricky to get the new seals around the piston

    Well i am hoping its under warranty. If not whats the estimated cost of getting a new ram arms as opposed to fixing it.

    Well not sure as to what dealer pricing would be. I have gotten them aftermarket before. I usually rebuild ours just b/c I order the seals and such in bulk.
    Ck with the sponcers on here. They usually have comparable prices
