    Any Love for OBS Fords in here?

    This is my OBS,

    Mostly just a tow rig, It dos't get daily driven often

    #2
    Mine is a 96. Started life with a 460/C6. I swapped in an IDI/ZF5. It's 4.10 on 37's running a home made shackle reversal. I built it to act as my mobile workshop here on the farm. The rack is modular and unbolts in a few minutes to stow away in the bed. It is also free span so I can haul a gooseneck with it bolted on. I have a Miller BlueStar 185, a Hypertherm 45, a Quincy compressor mounted to the truck. In the job box is a full set of tools. Everything from basic hand tools, a full set of cordless tools and basic fab tools like grinders and such. Behind the seat are lay out tools like 500' tape various measurementdevices, marking paint, stakes, levels squares, etc. On the inside of the bed rail lives a weedwhacker, leaf blower, chainsaw, a 110v winch on a sling, shovels, pick, sledge, high lift, fence post driver and a manual grease gun. I mounted a 1200lb a tommy lift off the rear. On the front is an 8274 and an incomplete bumper that I'll eventually finish. I also have a set of sliders that will become 45 gallons worth of air storage so I can ditch the 30 gallon tank I have mounted in the bed.

        Could a FSB fit behind your camper on your trailer?

              I like that set up.

              I'm looking at a similar set up for coast-to-coast travelling.

                Last summer I mad the Trek cross country with that setup and the truck and trailer were awesome until I hit Colorado and Nevada .. the hills were a bit much and it felt like the truck was working too hard. I have baby swamps and a kc turbo in it and 50 was Max on some of the hills.

                    I hear you.


                    You ever drive I15 through the NV/CA state line?

                    12+ miles of 6% grade on the CA side of said state line!

                        I had a few of the OBS trucks over the years and really liked them. I finally had to upgrade for better pulling/hauling capacity. I do miss how easy they were to mess with.

                            I have a 93 cclb, 351, 5 speed 1 ton 4x4 for a plow truck.

                            It works great for a plow truck, but it seems like I have to work on it every day I drive it. Normal Ford stuff
                            Every day is better than the next.
