    I have no experience with the wide out, but I would think at least a solenoid, hoses and fluid. Plus have the tools needed to make the repair. Would suck to have the part and no means to putting them in. I keep an ohm meter and a 12v test light in the trucks tool box helps to diagnose things.

    I am sure some people with wideouts will have a better idea than I do. Good idea to plan ahead!

    Sorry about that hope you know I wasn't trying to talk down to you. I think a wideout will be the next plow I get.
