Just an idea to pass on for protecting your hydraulic hoses from chafing. Both a good friend of mine and I use this idea: corrugated split loom for wiring. It comes in various sizes, the stuff I used on my plow is about 5/8" inside diameter. You can buy it new from auto parts suppliers in a roll, but for small pieces most scrap vehicles will provide you with lots. (One of our hobbies is playing around with Chev/GMC trucks, so there'e lots on hand) I don't cover the whole hose, just any potential wear spots. The split loom gives a nice finished appearance, holds itself on the hose nicely (use a size that will grip the hose snugly) and is easy to install and remove.
