Learned mostly by trial and error working on a patio in my parents backyard when I was younger. Took a class at community college on landscape construction and did a lot reading on lawnsite.

nice trucks, ive seen them around a couple times. If your interested i could pm you a couple links that could give you some good information about your 6.0 powerstroke and could help you keep it out of the dealership.

Just placed the order on a new Fisher stainless XV2 for the GMC, getting it installed next Monday. That and getting the lights on the old plow swapped out for newer hd lights. Can't wait for the snow to fall.

I have that exact trailer. How is your leaf box secured? Also do you have easy access to the trailer jack? I mounted my tiny leaf loader on the tongue also but its in the way of the crank for the jack. PITA to crank up or down..

I have a giant ratchet strap across the back and then on the inside at the front I put two d-rings on the walls and have a ratchet strap going from one side on the trailer wall at the top to the bottom of the other. Creates a X in the front to hold it down and prevent it from swaying. We left enough room to get to the jack. It's a little in the way but not bad at all when I have to remove it.

Just finished up today doing a paver apron, cobblestone edging, retaining wall and had the driveway re-paved. This made a huge difference on this home from what was there before.
