traded in my OBS :( sad day...

Well I finally traded my old OBS in for a new truck...I just couldnt afford to keep throwing money at it (but god knows I wanted to)

2007 F250 4x4 Crew-Cab Diesel with 26K miles

What I like:
4x4 selector is the floor shifter...not the ESOF
What I dont like:
The small mirrors vs the full size mirrors
paying the note

Good lookin truck! So overall for a beginning POV do you like it in general better than the OBS. Better interior, more power, smoother ride, etc......

well I like it better than MY obs....If I had an OBS that was still in good shape it might be different.

The S/D is much easier to get into...the girlfriend LOVES the grab handles on the A-pillar. She ALWAYS complained about how there wasnt anything to grab ahold of when climbing into my OBS.

It is also much quieter, and smoother riding than my OBS...but I still miss my OBS lol.

Also I havent done any measuring but it feels like the cab has more space and I do sit up higher inside the cab which I LOVE.

More room? thats cool. Kinda surprising...... From appearance all the newer truck cabs look like they are a lot smaller than the OBS

Sad to see you got rid of the OBS, good to see you're still in a Ford.
Yeah, the SDs are bigger inside and out. You can always buy a set of tow mirrors and replace those penguin flippers.
