Thanks for the compliment! The fuel economy of the truck I have not measured extensively, but I think I am getting between 14 and 16mpg in the city, and between 18 and 20mpg on the highway. It would be higher if you get the 4 cylinder version though. But, I love having the 4.0 V6, because I have the power, and it sounds good.

Some before and afters of a shrub stump removal I did for a client. It was very difficult, I had to use the pick axe and the loppers to get them out.

I have a lot of pictures from that same install/project. Here is my first time doing hardscaping work. Any constructive criticism is welcome. Here are the hardscape before and afters.

Buy your self a battery sawzall for the stumps. Cut around the stump with a pruning blade and it gets the roots.

Ok, in the backyard of the same install/project, I had to level out the soil and retill it, adding soil amendments, and playground mulch. Here is the before pictures of the backyard.
