Ryan,
I just recently bought a new JD 757 60" ,, I saw your pics and was curious if you used any kind of a stripe kit on your mower ?

No striping kit, it's all stock. We've thought about adding one, but think it stripes fine without one.

~35 lawn maintenance contracts in 2004. We do a lot of landscape maintenance (shurb trimming, mulching, etc.) and landscaping also. Gotta keep a light load until college is finished.

The chevy has been a real good truck. It's almost to 100k of hard miles. No major problems. Water pump, starter, and head gasket replacement (common problem on the 350's) is all I can think of. Gas mileage is 7-8 towing the trailer, up to 12mpg on the highway.

The duramax hasn't had any problems yet. It's getting a blizzard 810 snowplow this weekend. The fuel mileage for it is up to 18 on the highway, about 12 towing the trailer in town (both trucks are driven with a heavy foot).

I don't know if I ever posted a pic of the duramax in this thread, so here is one:
