Default CCSB OBS Retro Build

Hey guys, I'm back!
I know it seems forums are kind of a thing of the past, but I still enjoy sharing ideas with people who aren't as retarded as all the kids on Instagram these days.


I had a pretty good build thread for my last truck

And I sold it back in November....

And would've done one for the 6.7 but it was chronicled on Facebook



Yesterday I brought home my 3rd powerstroke build, and I'm pretty excited about it. It's a 97 CCSB 7.3 Powerstroke. It's completely unmolested, no TS Chip no straight pipe, no nothing just maintained and driven. She rolled over 300k on the way home, and the truck doesn't miss a beat. It does have a few body issues, and a couple things, but nothing crazy just regular wear and tear as to be expected on a 20 year old truck.

5% tint all around

I'll keep this build thread updated as progress comes along. I'll post the build plans up soon!

Can't wait to see this one come together. But with those aftermarket headlights/tail lights and a 6.4 bumper is it truly unmolested under the hood? Or did they return it back to stock to sell it? It's kind of weird that those things would've been changed on it and nothing under the hood.

Not at all, most truck owners even modern will have no problem or hesitation doing cosmetic upgrades vs under the hood.

But yeah itís bone stock and old man owned. He cracked a tail light and bought this headlight/tail light eBay combo vs putting replacement OEM ones on and to upgrade the front end look he put new grille, lights and bumper. His son was going to get the truck but he got an accord instead going off to college.

I guess it was more of the headlight style that had me questioning it as most older people would go back with stock. Looks like a really good find though.
