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:

Roger that. I'm hopin Bill will bite on this one too and represent the boys from North of 49. I think you threw the gauntlet down to him with your first round of pics :hehe:
^^^ Yeah that's what I'm talkin about dude, choose some of your faves and post 'em up. One at a time, all in a wad, whatever!!

I am thinkin about starting a poll for this thread on most or best or most ******* or whatever mods if it really takes off.
Another one from me. Lotech, lowbudget, ******* class!! I needed switches, I didn't want to cut up my dash, these were free from a scrap pile, I fabbed the brackets, ran some wires and ta-frickin-da...they even light up red :woot:

...a moment of silence for Mike's poor truck. There was a lot of you in that war wagon.

Nice. I agree with the other guy, some nasty chewers would look bada$$ on those wheels. Looks like you got a few other things done man, let's see some pics :thumb:

I still like the old school big sidewall look but dang dude, 35s on 18s or 20s. Wow.
High Idle Mod

Yes its a pair of vise grips.......
:hehe: :hehe: :hehe: sweet!

IMO, big rims belong on newer trucks. with an old school truck it kinda needs to stay with a old school theme. i was thinkin at 1 time of puting 18s on my OBS, but thinkin bak im glad i didnt cuz itd look a lil off to me. but for my 07 mega cab its def gettin 20s with 33s. jus my .02 :thumb:
Mostly agreed but if I EVER get to go shopping for wheels and tires for my truck I want 33s on 18s. I`m hooked on the look :nod:
52" mickeys with 51" rims lol
Wouldn't that be sweet :hehe: :hehe: :hehe:

Gonna put 'em on your ghetto lifted Caprice??:hehe:
^^^ :hehe: :hehe: :hehe:

I'm spoiled cause I have a AIC :approve:
