    What are most of you guys running for spare plow parts? I am trying to get everything together here before we get some serious snow.

    My list so far

    -spare controller (scored for free:D)
    -spare trip spring with eyebolt
    -spare hitch pins
    -2 spare quarts of hydraulic fluid
    -spare fuses for truck and plow

    Stuff I still need

    -spare hose
    -spare solenoid
    -angle cylinder?

    Anything I am missing here guys?

    Your list looks good for the common basics. Having a spare controller is very handy on the Westerns so your even covered there. Only other things I'd recommend specific for your plow is a spare lift chain bolt as they'll let go from time to time. And of course when you need it the most. And throw an extra fill plug in the truck too. They're hard to find in the snow. :D

    list looks pretty good.
