Ahhh cool your jets - im pokin fun.
Thats the ONLY thing I ever found an OBS truck to be good for = parts! (i.e.) the lower radiator mounts will interchange easily. Some even got badass metal buckets they mount in that will bolt to pre-existing holes in your core support!
Hope this helps!

Yeap. I have found some that are rather two piece. Like a HD version of a lower radiator mount. They exist but im very anti-obs, not an expert. I think those trucks are junk but they've got good lower radiator mounts. - check it out. Could probably shop new ones at the store. Tis a good tip.
I know you can buy fancy silicone ones.
