How are you eating,,getting extra protein, are you using anything to help, how much cardio do you do?

Increase your calories. If you want to be king of the jungle you gotta eat the lion's share of the food. You probably aren't eating as much as you think. I had this problem for a long time.diet is hard to figure but when you get it dialed in it makes all the difference

I feel like i eat like crazy but I started tracking my calories and I was getting in between 3000-4000 depending on the day. I do zero cardio besides manual labor with work.

40 lbs in 2 years is good what is your body fat percentage.if you gained 40 in 2years and didn't become a lard ass you should celebrate

I'm not to sure what my body fat percentage is never checked. But I'm a pretty lean guy so I doubt it's much

Look up a body fat percentage calculator it gives you where on your body to measure with a cloth tape and it will figure it for you . Don't go by BMI you want body fat percentage

Also if you want to true bulk and have a crazy metabolism like you probably do, don't be afraid to eat dirty if you wanna gain! If you're lucky enough to go have a burger and chips with all the sides a couple of times a week go ahead, it'll all help bro! A few good ways to smash some good calories in, tbsp of olive/avocado oil 120kcal, tbsp peanut butter 90kcal, macadamia nuts are 201kcal per oz! Just gotta look into and smash in the food till you see results, have a couple of rest days a week to help reset you CNS

like said --- eat more. but eat more calorie dense foods. a couple of good recommendations have already been given. but its not that hard to do with the right combo ... 2 glasses of milk, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and a couple of handfuls of almonds will add an additional 1000 cals a day.

Like Greato said, you gotta program in those rest days. You'll burn less calories, and your muscles will actually have time to recover and grow. No one grows in the gym, it is the rest day that gives those gains.
Also, depending on your workout, you may need to decrease reps and sets and go to a bulking type workout. Compound moves, heavy weights.
As a hard gainer myself, I find that I have to force myself to slow down a bit in the gym, and eat nutrient and calorie dense foods throughout the day as well. A lot of good advice given to you here by all.
