New Guy Questions

I did not see a new guy post to I will just jump right in with the questions. First off...what is OBS. Second: I am having a tough time finding cargo tie downs for the bed rail holes. Lots of them for 97 and newer...but nuthin' for my 95 350 CC LB.

Looking forward to hanging out here.

OBS applies to the body style up to 99.5...the same body style you have. As far as the tie-downs I'm not sure where to get em either as my truck came with em. Surely someone will chime in soon. Welcome to the org!
