Yea that does get annoying when looking for trucks on CL. "Yea sure dude the engine will last 1 million miles but the horse turd of a body wont last another winter"

Exactly. The body's are COMPLETELY JUNK around here. It doesn't matter if the engine will last 50 years if the truck around it is falling apart.


I have OBSs because I like them better. I have had 3 SDs and over 50 OBSs

I just like the OBS better.

They are cheaper to buy, the body parts are pretty cheap to buy, I have LOTS of parts trucks and And I like the way they drive over a SD

O and I dont have ANOTHER "ME TOO TRUCK" like every other SD owner

Cause obs were the last hold out of the sexy looking truck bodies. There isnt any truck out there that from 67-97 looked any better then a Ford f-250 truck. Nothing except maybe the 73-86 chevy truck

Much cheaper than any comparable SD that i looked at. Much more room in the engine bay compared to SD's. plus more people compliment me on my truck than my buddies SD's
