    Just had a Suburbanite plow installed on my Jeep, this is my 1st plow ever.
    The owners manual mentions using white petrolatum (Vaseline) to coat the
    linkages and ram pistons. Is this an approriate lubricant to use on thes plow parts?
    I was considering more like lithium greas...but maybe this is overkill?

    Thanks for your reply,
