Thinking About an OBS
I have a 6.0 thread up and would like some of the newer conveniences but have strong feelings towards the older diesels, even the IDI years as I had that body style F350 with a 460 before. The truck will be a DD and a tow rig whenever I get a camper (part of the reason I'm looking toward an older truck to save $$) From what I understand with the OBS trucks the 250's don't have a true solid front axle..something about TTB and a Dana 50? I am pretty unaware so I will ask some questions some of which I'm sure are a little stupid.
What year did they start making diesel crew cabs?
Part two of this: Are the extended cabs full back seats or jump seats?
Any immediately necessary mods for reliability?
What kind of fuel mileage am I looking at in a CCLB 4wd?
Max towing capacity/do they tow a fifth wheel decently?
What year did they get a turbo/are the NA diesels worth a damn?
