    Okay, now that I am almost installed and am ready for it to snow, had my tranny flushed, tranny cooler and timbrens installed...what's done to the plow during the season if anything?

    first thing is hit the hand carwash
    wash the truck ,plow everything
    salt will get in everything

    check all connectors make sure their tight put dielectricgrease to help fight corrosion

    i usually check the mounting bolts to make sure they dont loosen up

    Is this a new install? MM1 or MM2? Always keep the plugs well greased. If it is a MM2 make sure you keep the cam guides well grease for ease of removal.
