Spare parts saved me

    This morning I went to hitch up the plow because we got about 2inches or so. I get it all hooked up and it won't go up, down, or side to side. But i heard this loud clicking coming from the engine compartment. It was the electric solenoid for my western plow. Luckily I ordered a bunch of extra parts, including that one. I also had my tool box, so I just took the old one out, wired up the new one and I was good to go.

    Spare parts are a life saver!!!!

    Anyone that doesn't keep spare parts in the truck is asking for problems. And they usually occur at the worst possible time.
