First OBS!

Some of you may or may not know, but I have been in the market for an OBS for a while know, and I finally found one. my dad knew the previous owner, and ran into him at the bank, and asked him when he was going to sell his truck. he said he had just put it up for sale, so my dad called me right away, and told me if i didn't buy it, that he would. Well its a 1997 F-250 PSD ECLB, with 273,000 babied miles. On the drive home, i was grinning ear-to-ear.

Very nice rig, glad you finally got one, what does the tag on the tail gate say? And better scrape the cat sticker off before international finds out

Looks like it will have a good home! Pretty lucky to know the PO and how it was treated too.

What are your plans for the truck? Sounds like you have been thinking about one for a while...I know I had mine "done" before I ever had it

351fifty, the tag is a powerstroke badge from 99-03.5. The only things I have planned right now is to do a Dana 60 swap and some Tony Wildman tunes. It already has a tymar intake and 3 inch downpipe
