Thanks man. I think so too . Once we get some nice weather it will be getting the wheels painted, fenders over rear tires, and bedlining the inside of the tool box etc.
hopefully the pics will be on JOBS instead of in the driveway.

Thanks man, want to lend me your excavator? It would look good behind my dump! Haha.
Thats the plan, i was spending hundreds every month on loading/unloading/forgetting tools. Hopefully no more!

That is a nice ride, about time we see some pics...

I don't like the phone number on the hood or the vertical name, think it gets too busy? Maybe upsize your name on the door with the phone number there. I think phone number/website on the tailgate. I would also do everything with reflective, think that gives it more 'flash'.

Hey bro after months of debate i pulled the trigger and so happy i did.

I'll ask about the reflective tomorrow when we finalize the changes. Like tthomas tailgate on his pickup?

Hows your setup going?

You get some Alcoa's and that truck is money.

I think I'm stuck with what I got, nobody will offer reasonable money for the 550 or Kodiak. I have been looking for one of those IH4700LPX that would be super cheap but haven't seen one yet.

They want 400/corner for simulators or 800 per tire for alcoas. Cruising craigs for deals but found none. Rustoleum spray it is! I'm feeling metallic grey.
You will find work or a buyer from them, this season the phone is blowing up already
Take a look at this stud. The epitome of low pro beauty

I'm sure it would look good behind that nice truck! But I'm not turning loose of it that quick, it has got to make me some money first.

Yeah, that is a sexy devil. Have you seen that blue 4300 that was on CL before by you? I really liked that one.

Glad to hear the phone is ringing, that has to happen before anything else. I get to look at a potential boulderscaping project this week, oohh mini x...

Nah i havent seen it, I'm usually pretty diligent on craigs.

I'm doing a lot of estimates for foundations and already got one. If i could book a couple i would be ex shopping but for now its rentals.

Also looking to hire a skilled lead guy to free me up from being on site all day
