Here is a few. Anything that unplugs use two pieces of masking tape on. On one side goes a letter or number on the other goes the same or something that will help you identify where wires and hoses go. Also I use ziplock bags to put fasteners and parts together that need to be kept together. I will write where those particular bolts or keepers go etc. Take pics. if you need to. This is very helpful with harness and hose routing.

make sure when your ready to take it apart its ready to go right back together. Time is a killer for me. if something sits ill forget where something goes..

Pics

Well I fabbed up a mount for my 60" cycle county state plow and I made it so it went into the front reciever with one pin (now I know where I went wrong) it was tough if you hit a hard snow bank square but if you hit a really hard buried snow bank with just the edge of the plow it will turn you sideways and bend the front reciever over and the front diff is a little cockeyed I brought it to a body shop on monday and we pulled on it but that front diff is still a little out of wack so I said the hell with it Im getting a new frame that is on back order until feb 27th so this is as far as I can go right now, I am gonna clean the clutches (new belt) and adjust the valves this weekend.

I bent the heck out of my rear hitch last year pulling several Hondas out of the mud on an all day ride. I easily bent it back in place with a long prybar. Ac sure made them weak for some reason.
