My 2000 F250 IS technically a F350 since I added the lift block from the F350>

Not sure what “lift block” does for your truck?

Have you added leaf springs?

Typical delta between 3/4 ton and 1 ton is springs and tires/wheels.

Again, your better off to get these when you sign on the dotted line.

It’s been pretty well documented that in the past the difference was the rating and block. The block just raises the starting point for the springs. It’s probably worth validating that the tires aren’t low rated.

You can also validate what axle etc it has with the helpful people at Ford-trucks.com.

I lucked out yesterday and found a 2021 Ford F250 XL with nice packages added , 7.3 gas, 10 speed, 3.55 rear It was a demo but looks great. I drove it a 100 miles home and it seemed to be getting fantastic gas mileage. Seemed like it was making gas. Have to see how it does with camper on. I just ordered torklift frame mounts for it.

Now if I can just pay for it. Cost close to twice as much as my old truck.
