    What do you guys keep on the trucks?

    I've got extra springs, elbows, a couple bolts, one solenoid, some elbows and a couple other little things.

    I'm wondering what all i should be carrying, short of an extra pump xysport

    Many guys carry a complete spare pump in the truck at all times. Saves downtime on troubleshooting and repairing.

    But if you're not in a position to do so then throw a spare A, B, and C valve and two coils in there as well, you will need them eventually. If you're running a touch pad controller an extra one of those can be very beneficial as well. Didn't see any spare quick couplers on your list either so be sure to add those.

    Basically everything but a spare lift arm and blade. :D

    You could carry a spare plow in the bed of the truck & I guarantee that $2 part that breaks you wont have with you.

    Tow strap/Chains
    Electrical supplies, fuses, wire, solenoid, jumpers, tape
    windshield wipers
    Cell phone, inverter, charger
    Extra gloves, boots, socks, clothes.

    Basically anything that can easily be replaced in a drive/lot or that you may need to limp yourself back to the shop/garage to make a perm. repair where it's warm.

    It may not hurt to have a small jack just incase if you need it.

    Thanks guys, I've been gathering stuff up and making sure i've had it.

    I pretty much have to be able to fix it there.. I'm plowing about 40 minutes from home in clear weather, It can be up to a 2 hour drive in snow
