Thumbs up 94-98 vs 99-03 PSD's

A. 94-98 PSD's--gotta stick with the classics--they look better and have what I want

B. 99-03 PSD's--gotta go with the new and improved body style and features

C. You all are nuts--electric Prius is the only one for me (added this for the hippie lurkers)


So, which era do you prefer? There are advantages to both (ie the 94-98 has the dual tanks, but the 99-03 had the 6 speed). Say which one and why!

Polling is open..........NOW!

I love the look of OBS trucks, but its more work to make more power on them, but if you want a good deal of power on an SD with PMRs then forget about it

I gotta go with OBS but I like the super duties too. The OBS looks better IMO, but the super duties are easier to make power, come with intercooler, etc.

Its a toss up. Mostly what are your plans with it?

I personally feel the NBS trucks look better and have nicer interiors.

-They also come with larger injectors (99.5+) and an intercooler.
-Many were also gifted with PMRs

But on the other side, Matt as proven that an OBS can look as good if not better then any NBS.
-They have forged rods too.

OBS will cost less to buy too.

So again I ask, what are you planning to do/ what do you want in a truck?

I love both but the OBS had the best looks hands down.

I voted for the NBS though because its inter-cooled, and has the 6 speed

Sticking with my guns on the OBS. Very rare that she has let me down, and when it has I have ALWAYS made it back to the house with it.
