Thanks KSSS. Image is everything to us as it has attracted many of our customers. I think in that pic the machine had 600 something hrs on it.

No, we made out pretty well in the storm here. I think the most damage done in my area were a few branches and a bunch of leaves blown down.

Here's another project we were subcontracted to do the fine grading and loaming around a half mile of new airport runways. I only have a couple pics from the first day I was there as we were kept pretty busy.

Thanks guys. Those are not stock rims. The 2011 and later F450 comes with the 17-inch tires and wheels that F350s have. I have had much better luck with the thicker and larger tires that I had on my previous 450s in my line of work so with this truck I decided to stick with what works.

With that said, if anyone is looking for an un-used set of chrome, 17-inch wheels and tires, I am selling some :-)
