00 obs vs nbs


Recommended Posts

i looked up seems the obs truck is a bit more heavy duty has more towing capasity.

 

 

 

 

Up until the introduction of the 2500HD(9200GVW) in 01 the highest GVW available in the 2500 series 8 Lug SRW was 8600lbs. GM/Chevy had a 3500 Dually that they called an HD with (I think) a GVW of 12,000lbs but I'm pretty sure it only came in 2WD. They were distinguished by having a larger/longer fascia below the grille which also made the front bumper lower compared to the regular trucks.:chevy:

Yeah the 3500HD was a 10 hole truck wheel rig too.

My 95 SRW 3500 has a GVRW of 9,900 and these trucks were available up to 2000.

My 2000 K3500 OBS SRW is rated 9200 GVW (though I have had it over that many times with no fuss) Never seen a OBS SRW K3500 rated above 9200 and mine even has factory optional HD suspension too. THey cam out with the 9900 rating when they brought back the SRW 3500 a few years ago in a NBS truck after not making them the first few years that the NBS was out.
