    So as some of you know i sold my 1500 in march to upgrade. i couldnt find really anything i really wanted. so i decided to rebuild another obs chevy to how i wanted. i bought the truck for 850 needing alittle work but i spun it and ended up doing alot of work:cry: its worth it in the end, it has a new motor, trans front tires and some other things. i decided to paint it and dress it up to plow in style a little bit. hope you guys enjoy i will post more pictures as it comes along hopefully all the body work will be done this week and the bed will be painted. the windows are getting tinted tomarrow morning 20% all the way around and i also have clerence lights for it im going to install.

I just went to the jefferson county swap meet in wisconsin and got the bed for it thats why its a different color. its rust free gerogia bed. its going to be a good truck im just in the process of finishing it. its been a fun project to end the summer with. like i said i will upload more photos as i make progress this week and next.

    That looks great! I absolutely LOVE those OBS chevys! Does it have a 350 or a 454?

    Looks great so far. I've done a few OBS chevy trucks like that, enjoyed each one.
    Not to bad to work on over-all.
    Keep us updated!

    Nice truck. I loved my 1989 Chevy 2500 and it was the same color as yours was. It will be a great plow truck for you.

    there ya go mark, they look more blue than they really are. the lights them selfs project really far in the oe lens and i love not having to worry if im ever going to use my brights cause they are dimmer then my low beams. i also have hids in my plow but the are just 5k 55 watts, they are really white vs my truck lights.

    the second pic is more or less how they look the first one is a fed up angle and makes them look really blue!

    i really like the flares aswell, but the hillrod that owned it before me decided he was going to take the 600 in gm flares off and throw them out. so instead of throwing flares back on it im going to get the hd mirrors to make up for it!
    yea, im looking forward to the longer wheel base. i plow about 5 miles of roads and endless amounts of driveways in a condo complex we plow and the single cab 6ft box 1500 just wasnt working well for that cause i was just getting pushed all over cause it was to short!

    if it wasnt so cool and it didnt take me 3 weeks to find a rust free box it would have been done. throw up a couple pics when you get it on the way id like to see it. i have never owned anything that was obs chevy its just a beast of a truck and thay take a ass kicking. Piece of advise is just take your time and dont take short cuts in body work cause it never pays off unless you flipping the truck, i have seen nice looking trucks then after the first winter it looks like all the rust they fixed they just sanded down and painted over.
