I’m not really looking for a truck, but I was driving by the ford dealership and noticed a gas truck, so I pulled in to check it out. Long bed, check; crew cab, check; cloth seats, check; vinyl floors, check; 7.3, check; 4.30 check; F350..... nope. If it was a 350, I would have really been impressed, but for some reason it’s a 250.


Oh well, guess I’ll keep driving my old truck.

This 250 wouldn’t do the job? Max trailer weight, payload?

A long box is next to impossible to find around here and fortunately so is a f250 hard to find. I think if I were to go long box I might go all the way to duals ..... not going to happen on my next truck but maybe the one after that.

Add the 350 spring pack and you have a F350, re badge it and no one will know unless they check the vin.

I believe the rear axle is also bigger on the F350.

We had a heck of a time finding our truck. Luckily my friend is a dealer in MD. Had what we wanted and bought it over the phone. But we looked for almost 2 mos solid within a 4 hr radius.

Just go in, ask for the sales manager and order what you want. I feel like I get a better price that way in most cases.

Obviously not Ford guy, you need to do some reading. I will guarantee I park the F250 next to an F350 of the same year you will not know the differance without looking at the badging or Vin. Ford/Lincoln/Mercury mechanic for years and owned super duties since 1999. Pick a part and et a part number, same for ether truck.
