    I installed a new 6.5 meyer on my jeep and just got around to trying to install the black rubber condom for the pump. It is a pain in the !%$ to try to fit it.

    Does this thing do anything or should I make a new beer can cooler out of it?

    i cant see where it does any thing but help hold the salt in, maybe make it look a little better, it's gonna take more than that though. when you figure it out let me know and i'll dig mine out of the corner

    Practice safe snowx:

    My Farm equip/Plow guy had it on my new E57 setup when I picked it up last fall. He said "I usually just throw it in the bin over there cause it's a pain in the a#$, but I figgered you plowsite guys probably know it's supposed to come with a new plow".
    I haven't taken it off yet but I also was thinking it might hold more salt and moisture than protect it.

    Those covers are really good. All my Meyers have a tendency to accumulate snow on them, and freeze the unit. I don't know how many times I had to get the heat gun out to unthaw them. When I got the covers, no more problems. A few words of wisdom when putting them on - 1) Put it over the whole motor and cable, and don't use the hole to put the positive cable through. 2) Trim the boot that covers the connector for the angle cylinders, or it will be a pain to attach the hoses. 3) Take the bottom bolt of the unit, and let it hang on the arm. This makes it easier to put on, when it is hanging.
