F450: The Big Red Beast

I haven't been around for awhile; unfortunately quite ill with a lung disease.

I took delivery of the first imported 2011 F450 from Vehicle Components/Melbourne in June; received The Beast from TUFF Bullbar last week.

While it may be large :lol: , it is a pleasure to drive; it doesn't even know that it is towing 4.4T.

If someone will post how I upload some images I will be happy to share The Beast with you. :D

:oops: I guess you need to read the FAQ more carefully; just found out that you cannot upload to this site. I do not belong to any "public" upload sites.

Suggestions?

Thanks!!

Upload your photos to a free site like imageshak or imgur. Then just post the links to the images here. Easy. Look forward to the pics!!!

The truck and our home - a 24' Bushtracker - will be in Coburg at the Big 4 caravan park around 3 - 10 Feb before we fly to the USA.

That is so cool!

That is the first day we saw The Beast; and, that is Jackie aka SWMBO behind the wheel on the WRONG side of the truck. :)

Which site did you pull the image from?

:cry: Neither the Boroma nor the F250 have been sold. If they do not sell as a package in the next couple of months I am going to sell the F250 and die with the Boroma.

grabbed it from your "blog- travel pod.com"

its in your "profile" on this site- as your web page.

Mention of the 250 is from some of your first posts (you have 30 here) and I remember you from last time and lusting after the F450......

I have just spent a few day looking at carsales- there are F650 in Aus (and some dual cab raptors)


heart stop beating- deep breaths..... :cry:
