Getting my first OBS!!

Well fellas, I'm picking up my first OBS on Thursday! I'm pretty excited. Just found it today and got these pics. Will be heading to Amarillo Wednesday night to pick it up. I think its a really clean truck! Let me know what y'all think. Its a 96 CCLB 4x4 with 193k miles.

we are getting it for about 9500 i believe.

i think an older man owned it before hand and put it on there to protect the dash (or just thought it looked good ). the dash is in good shape underneath it. that will be the first thing to go once i get it.

already working on it! so far what i'm looking at is the TS 6 pos chip and a 3" dp to 4" exhaust. like i said, i'm new to the OBS world, so does that sound like it would be good for this truck?

Very nice. What made you get rid of the 6.4l? You'll enjoy it! Even though it isnt as plush or powerful as a 6.4l they are really awesome trucks.
Sounds like you're already on the right track. What else do have planned for it.
Do you go to school up College Station??
