Complete Customs in West Texas is committed to being a one- stop shop for customizing cars and trucks that turn people’s dreams into reality on wheels. This McKinney, Texas, shop (completecustoms.net) has garnered more awards, cover trucks, and features than just about any other we can think of.
But when Valrico Disaster Recovery Services needed its Ford F-450 Super Duty built up, Shaun Freilich and the crew at Complete Customs were just as excited as if it were a show truck. Diving into the project and coming up with a plan to make the big dualie look great while it was utilized to help those affected by disasters was very rewarding.

The addition of American Force’s Drag wheels was led by both cosmetic and practical reasons. While these wheels are amazing looking, they are super-tough and can withstand just about anything a natural disaster can throw at them. Nitto Grappler tires cover up the wheels and provide traction on any surface.
An aftermarket bumper from Fusion was outfitted with Rigid LED lights -- another nod toward beauty and functionality. The addition of a Warn winch in the center of the front bumper is a reminder that this truck isn’t always driven in the nicest places.
The full body wrap tells the story of what Valrico does and no doubt does a good job of gaining new customers. Advertising your business right on your truck is a growing trend in the work truck marketplace, and we wholeheartedly support it!
Valrico says it is “committed to development and execution of unique business solutions, which enable our clients to focus on their business while we focus on critical infrastructure requirements.” Valrico can supply airboats, traditional boats, ATVs, and helicopters in time of need. Crews are specifically trained for delivering emergency fuel to generators during extended commercial power outages.
The disaster business is not easy, but Valrico uses quality tools (like this Ford) to get the job done.
