    Got a 2008 8'6" xblade. Just heard the old creaking sound comming from the lift arm when I mounted it tonight. My guess is fluid is cold. Creaks going up but even more down. Should I check fluid level. Plow goes on 2008 f350. All functions are in good working shape.

    Squirt some lube on the chain and see if it goes away.

    Dido on the chain! spray I spray fluid film on it a few times a year, more so where it goes to the top piece.
