    I am wondering if anybody on here is using a bolt-on hydraulic pump on the engine to provide hydraulics for their plow. I've seen a few people put a generator in the bed and run lines up front, but I think it would be great if there was a bolt-on pump that I could use. Then I could save some weight from the plow and keep my electrical system in good shape.
