What is the difference between NBS and OBS... and please, please, please... enough speculation from some of you guys. Let the ones who know answer... every post I've seen starts with... "well, I am pretty sure that it has to the <whatever>
smell, window coloring, air in tires, and no sheet! someone said that this could be decided upon by the dealer! huh??!!!)

What is the difference?

Thanks!

well, I'm pretty sure its... :anitoof:

NBS = new body style. Refers to the 99+ fullsize GM trucks and 2000+ SUVs

OBS = old body style. Refers to the 88-98 fullsize GM trucks and SUVs

Pretty much everything is different between them except the logo's on the front. If you are asking what the difference between OBS and NBS is when referred to on this site, then slash covered it above. NBS = New Body Style (99-up)

Did they continue at all to make the OBS trucks in 99? I saw an OBS truck on a car lot today and it had 99 on the windshield, I figured it was a screwup but wondered if they might have continued to make a few OBS trucks (sorta like Ford has their Heritage F-150)
