Let's see or hear about them OBS mods!! Big or small post 'em all. Whether you ghetto chromed your valve stems or patented a functioning flux capacitor I wanna know about it!! Lifts, swaps, conversions, wheels, tires, injectors, fuel, oil, turbos, chips, tuners, intakes, exhaust, bumpers, suspension, lights, electrical, mechanical, interior, exterior, audio, visual, *******, hillbilly, hitech, lowtech, home built, store bought, big budget, no budget, low budget, bolt on, stick on or spray on, this is your chance to brag some about what you did that made you proud...or not so much if it failed miserably but let's see or hear about the fails too!!

Don't matter if you did it this morning or ten years ago. Even if you have already posted your mod elsewhere and you think everyone knows about it, post it up again!!

If you glued a 12' CB whip to the middle of your hood and you think that makes your truck worthy of a cover shoot for Diesel Power Mag then I'm talkin to you too!!

No rules other than don't be mean and make fun of someone else's contraption. If it makes the pilot smile then it's a cool mod, roger? Having said that, chatter it up!! Questions, comments, concerns, compliments and condolensces welcome!!!!!!!!!!

If you are gonna post pics, make them detailed close ups of whatever you did that blew your hair back. Don't tell everyone that you installed a fuel pressure gauge then show a glam shot of your truck from 30' away. That's what the OBS pic thread is for. Get in there and show the nitty gritty!

Here's one of mine:

5" homebuilt blow pipe. I guess that would be "audio"? :hehe:

did the drilling of your grill help out at all??
yes it helped keep the EGTs down

i like the black painted speaker covers int he door panels:thumb:
I painted the dash and the trim in the cab as well,and all the small stuff when I pulled the head liner out and the interior panels. Black,grey and aluminumized was the color of the hole interior of the cab.
nice i might have to try it out
if you do dont do it like I did, do a nice inline uniform set of holes for your drilling. It'll look so much better
found a 95 OBS ext. cab long bed 4x4 in VA today !!!!!!!! CHEAP needs glass doors rear tail light assymblies and headlights,grille,radiator, and
Sounds like a real winner there...
its a start I guess,gotta start over with somthing with a PSD in it lol

...a moment of silence for Mike's poor truck. There was a lot of you in that war wagon.
thank you sir. :( Lotta wrenchs turned,lotta duct tape and bailing twine used (lol),lotta hours and a lotta beers went by working on and coming up with the next thing to "make it mine", I had planned to paint it burnt orange this summer,and throw 4"s of air under it. Time to start over. The jeep is a start but its not the same, its like the honda, just something to get by moding,I need to find another diesel:nod:
i hav a motor and the taillights. lol

i bet between everyone on here we could come up with all the parts to put that obs back together
:) That would be awsome.

Not tryin to pour salt in an open wound here, but what happened to it? I see by your sig it got burned up- did it catch fire itself or was it parked somewhere that caught fire?
It spontaiously combusted at 4am in the lower carport of my house,which in turn caught the house on fire, which myself,my wife and our 1 & 1/2 yo son barely made it out of. According to Ford and the insurance agency it wasnt the recalled part that is connected with the CC (which is KNOWN to spontaniously combust),but instead they say it started somewhere near the alternator. (which I say is impossible)

that pic is in what used to be his house :sad:
:( yup
Dang man that sucks, but it sounds like you and the family made it out okay which is the important part!
