My wife was wondering what I "needed" the diesel for, after I convinced her we needed the truck I explained we can't afford 11mpg, so diesel it is. Thank gassers for cheap body parts!

I just got my first PSD, not my first OBS, (had a 90 150 302 pooch all rotted out, had a 89 250 351 someone let the brakes go on it and it was just bad, should have kept it and fixed it) but for a while I had my mind made up that I wasn't going to find a obs in good shape, especially being in Illinois where all the salt is, so I set my heart on a SD. But I couldn't find a decent one for under 10K. Then my 97 came along, and I'm so glad I waited. Although I might cry the first time I have to drive it in the salt. haha. Definatly glad I stuck it out and waited for the obs which was what I originally wanted.

I guess I shoulda realized this was in the 7.3L Diesel forum before mentioning gassers lol.

Well to prove how much I like my PSD, I pulled the engine after I scored a cylinder (as in scratched it up, not obtained lol)

Yea I hear ya about the Illinois salt, although Iv never heard of your town so you must be from up north lol. My truck came from Michigan... surprisingly solid for a truck from the salt belt

Yeah most people dont' even know how to pronounce the name of my town so I just tell them Rockford area. lol

Someone Ziebarted my truck back in December, so hoping that will help. It looks real clean anyways. Still don't like the idea of driving in the salt lol.

I spose there are worse truck out there that people have gotten and fixed up. I know you can purchase most of the floor pans and stuff like that. Not sure about crew cabs though. They definatly seem to be more rare.

I found some papers behind the rear seat of my truck from the factory/conversion company. Mine was ziebarted at one of those places and it shows! Honestly, the only "bad" rust I have yet to find is on my radiator mount. That's saying something coming from Michigan

speaking of crew cabs being rare, if you find a source for rear window rubber parts. let us know. to my knowledge there are only 20 year old ones in junkyards.

Yeah definatly I know they use their fair share of salt up there!

And I also would think the windows would be the same. Have you looked in Lmc truck? That's how I know about the floor pans and stuff. That or jc Whitney they might have something.

or put a D60 into a f250. that is what I did with mine. Or get real crazy and put in an 05 up SD front and rear axels and suspension. endless possibilities.....
