Newbe question of the day.

OK so I've owned my psd for about 5 months now, and loved every minute of it.

So here's my question, what in the world does OBS stand for?

Well that's a load of bricks off my mind.
You wouldn't believe how much sleep I lost over that one. Nice to know I drive an OBS now. I figured it had something to do with the injection.

So if my truck is a 97 HD and it's an OBS, what yr did the new style start?

IMO, OBS trucks look the best. I prefer the straight lines vs rounded

+1 on the OBS

I love the older body lines, the newer body style just looks generic to me. The brand new stuff looks sweet though

Exactly

I had a tough choice when i got my truck. I was stuck between a '97 and my 2000. I chose the 2000 because it had WAY less miles. 95k at purchase vs over 200k on the 97. Still...i loved that truck
