    I did a landscape job for a guy a few months back and as part of the deal he had us haul off about 3-4 yards of rock. I go to the guys house today to talk about more work he wants done and now he was a ten yard pile of rocks he has stacked up. My customer is in his mid 60's so I'm impressed he has done this much work.

    At least this time I can back my 20' dump trailer right up to the pile and have my guys start chucking rocks like crazy. I estimate this to be a 25,000 pound stack of rocks.

    That's a lot of rocks, nice free material though, hope you get an opportunity to put them to good use.

    I started to hear some sporadic low pitch kind of hollow sounding noises coming from under the hood of my 09' Ram 3500. I noticed the water pump pulley had a little more back and forth movement going on then what was normal.

    I have had pumps do the classic weep hole leaks to let you know the bearing are going and I've had pumps lock up which shredded the serpentine belt.

    I decided to tackle this job myself and after about two hours I had Humpty Dumpty back together again. If you buy your water pumps from Cummins instead of Dodge you will pay about 1/3rd less. The pump from Cummins was $113.

    Awesome that you got to do it on your own. Save some money.

    It would have been a warranty repair but I wasn't going to jump through a bunch of hoops and put my DPF back on just for a water pump repair.

    This trailer came with one feature that can be dangerous. Tell me what looks awry and I'll tell you what I'm upgrading that is a must for enclosed trailer guys.

    The rear door assist system looks like it's ready to cave in one of your hombres cabezas
