ODB1 or ODB2

Ok, so I'm searching through eBay for a code reader, but I find my truck is on the cusp of the change-over year for protocols. Does anybody know for sure if my truck (a 1995 F250XLT) is Obd1 or Obd2?

I may be wrong, but I think those are obd1. I think the heavy duty trucks had until 98 to switch to obdII.

OK, thanks guys. I'll go take a pic. Next problem is how to post it. I'm a novice to forums as well as diesels. You'll notice there isn't even a pic of my truck up yet! I guess photobucket, or something like it.

That pic you've got up looks remarkably like British actor and comedian, Hugh Laurie.

Hopefully this is the pic of the socket. http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q...F250socket.jpg

It's towards the passenger side, under the dash, to the right of centre viewed when sitting in the cab.

Unless OBDI and II look the same, that looks like an OBDII to me.

Yep, I reckoned that too, but none of the suppliers I contacted would confirm which the 1995 is or commit themselves. These things ain't cheap over here!

Marc would know, I don't know why he hasn't been in here yet. I'll ask him myself if I see him online or something.
