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:

They're an over lay. You take the cover off the stock gauges and these slide over the needles into place. Put the stock cover back on, run your wires, put your dash back together and you're done. They have thier own lights. They don't use the factory lights. You can choose from blue or green. I had a few problems with the lights at first but I think I got it figured out.
Just installed a Cervini's cowl hood.

I have to agree with you Garrett. It turned out pretty good.
Thanks for the compliments guys. I try to take care of my truck the best I can. Unfortunatly the rust monster is showing it's ugly face. I found some rust bubbles on the bed and passenger cab corner so the trucks going in this winter and getting completely torn down and repainted. I'm going to have it painted a lite silver metallic. I'm getting real tired of white. Too hard to keep clean.
I hope it turns out good. I'm thinking of having it lowered while it's in the shop.
All around lowered. 3" front 4" in the rear and add air bags for when I tow my camper.
Haven't thought that far ahead yet. Truck doesn't go in till november and he'll have it all winter so I have some time to think about it. I'll look around and see what kind of kits are out there.
I probably go with a complete kit. I don't want to cob it together then fight other problems because of it.
I bought the DJM kit. I think it is well worth it. :nod:
That's the kit I'm going to get. I had one on another truck I had and it was a nice kit.
My latest mod is a hidden hitch to work with my roll pan.

The only problem with the hidden hitch is they quit making them about 10 years ago. I just got lucky and found one on Craigs List. They mount in between the frame rails so it's even with the roll pan so you have to remove your spare. So far it's worked pretty good.
I also like that hitch and also your rig set up. I dont like the clear tailights, but in your case, they look OK. Did you lower your truck?

Yep, I used a DJM kit to lower it 3" front and 4" back.
This is my latest mod. I can't wait till it's fixed.

A fifth of jack always sounds good lol,

Is that a cracked piston?
Yep, that's a cracked piston. Cracked it while pulling my 10K camper up a long grade. I switched from a low tow setting to a hotter tow setting part way up the hill under full boost and that was the result.
That's rough bro

I have the wife and kid mod, I'm very cheap when it comes to modding my trucks :doh:
I have the wife and kid mod too. I've had my truck for 13 years and have been slowly modding it over the years.
