    so i bought a truck and plow after doing a very very little bit of work last winter. i'm wondering what else i might need or be over looking (besides talent and hard work). the plowing i'll be doing is almost completely business lots.

    99' f-350 v-10
    new shocks and HD springs (add a leaf helpers in front and five leaf in back)
    blizzard plow w. hydro wings
    studded snow tires
    goofy yellow light
    remote starter cause i'm a big girl about the cold sometimes

    i know i still need to get a load of sand for ballast in the truck bed, switch over to pro-insurance and get a business lic. (the guy i'm gonna work for subs all the work out).

    so if i'm missing anything obvious, feel free to let me know! thanks all.

    Shovel and cell phone for when you get stuck.

    Maybe spare parts and hydraulic fluid.

    Weather service on the computer.

    Coffee and Thermos jug.

    Jumper cables

    $25 per start.
    I average 50 jumps per season - that's just the paid ones.

    Start some spinal mobility exercises now to get your back and neck strengthened and limbered up. A heavy duty tow strap. Find an all nights parts dealer for plow parts. Might be good idea get the number of a good welder. I packed a bottle jack and was glad I did after getting the plow frame hung on a curb.
