Kinda looking at 97

I have fount a 97 cc short wheel base 4x4 for 7000. not sure of the mileage but it looks clean and has a new tranny in it. truck looks all stock except it has been straight piped. I have a 2000 ext 4x4 f250 and was thinking of going to the 97 just b/c i like the look and the crew cab.

I guess i'm wondering how well the obs trucks drive and feel compared to a super duty, haven't got a chance to drive the truck so i'm just asking.

Re: Kinda looking at 97

I have a 97 OBS cc lwb 4x4 auto psd and love it. I really like the looks and the fact that most OBS trucks now a days have a million miles on them and they are beat...If you have found one in good shape for a good price then buy it.
As for the cab space...well yes there is a little less than the newer styled trucks. As for the ride...get yourself a reverse shackel kit, superduty "V" code front springs, and put on some good shocks and it will ride like a superduty.

I have my 97' F350, a 2001 Excursion, and a 2005 F350....and as far as looks and style I really like the OBS more.

Re: Kinda looking at 97

Thanks for the reply. My 2000 is just an extended cab, so the obs cc has a lot more room then it. Thank you for the info tho.
