New truck

Woohoo! Back in a PSD!

1995 F250 ec lb
Looks to be around 5" lift.

To Do list:
-D60 install
-37" tires
-Get a pillar pod and gauges
-Get a 6 position tuner from Tony Wildman
-Even out the lift (sits around 1" lower in the back)
-Fix the exhaust leak, sounds like its coming from where the downpipe meets the exhaust pipe
-Run the exhaust from where it is to the side of the bed (already 4" pipe)
-Replace the batteries, they don't need it but they're around 700CCA and I want upwards of 1000
-Replace the n**ger-rigged "CAI" with a real intake
-Install a CB/PA
-Put a tool box in there
-Install a good sound system, not to blast bass for the neighbors to hear, just to make Chris Ledoux sound a little better
-Body work... pull out the little dents here and there, grind down the spots starting to rust, and paint it WHITE
-Tint the front windows
-Replace the beat-to-hell tailgate
-Tear down the trans and replace the synchro's or just have it rebuilt, it grinds a little going into 4th and I expect that to get progressively worse

Then the fun stuff like IC, sticks, upgraded turbo, etc.

And so begins the money pit

Here's the pic the PO sent me when we were emailing back and forth, I'll take more in the AM.

Very cool Mason!! Congrats on getting back into a Powerstroke. Sounds like you got things planned out and on your way to a sick a$$ rig. Make sure to post pics of your progress.

I know all the other OBS guys are going to be real happy to see another one in the group.

Thanks yall!
Gotta admit, it feels pretty damn good to be sitting tall in a truck again. When I went to go test drive it, hearing it fire up put a pretty big smile on my face lol, love the sound of the 7.3s.

Forgot to mention, cab lights are another thing I'd like to get on there, anybody know of a template or measurements for the holes that need to be drilled in the roof? I've been searching and I've found one for the SDs but I can't find anything for an OBS.

Not too sure on the measurements, but Joe ^^^^ is a great person to talk to when it comes to the OBS.

Yup, been looking through all the forums in the OBS area... need to refresh my memory of the mods and such for em.
That view of the threads is pretty nice.
EDIT: Just found a thread in that forum about a cab light install that I posted in from last August lol... still didn't find any measurements there though.

Sorry I've been slackin on the pics, I'll get some up tomorrow... hopefully.
But I tore into it today and it turns out I have 4.10s and a LSD!

I found a pretty nice bed for $100, I think I'm gonna grab it... saves me from having to deal with the body work (I hate body work) and gives me an excuse to remove the bed and sand down/undercoat the frame. Just means I gotta paint the truck sooner than I thought, which is fine by me. I know its a slim chance, but does anybody have a shop with a paint booth I could use?
