Been reading along, you've sure put a lot of effort into Shamu to give up and go Super Duty. Heck, isn't it almost a super duty underneath anyway??
And it really rips at the heart strings to think about taking it apart to graft into another truck. Maybe sell it to one of the guys at the dunes??? Shamu deserves to live!!!!
Personal opinion, I've driven several super dutys, all over the country, overloaded most of the time, and was not dissatisfied. However, no way would I loose my OBS
to one. An OBS
feels like a truck, not a 6 ton poodle with running lights. Not to offend anyone, it's a personal opinion.

Yup, always personal preference. Sold my 4th OBS
, bought my current SD
and asked myself what took me so damn long. Superior in every way. Sure, less character, but I give zero f**** about character when having to work on one or sit in the side of the road with an inferior transmission, brakes, etc.....
