that is probably because they never made a truck like that from the factory if it has 450 suspension it would have come as a 450 someone made that truck what it is.

Ok time to clear up a few things here. The OBS F250 and F350 have exactly the same frame from the factory. The 2wd F250 and F350 used the exact same front end.

As to the the 450 spring pack its possible but unlikely. Most likely what it has is the Camper package spring set.

As far as the huge rear end. The 250 and 350 use the same exact rear as well. A 450 rear would have 10 bolt wheels and be a dually rear as well

Theres really no way anyone can give a positive answer without seeing pictures to see what were looking at. Post some pics and I'm sure you will get a lot more information.

idk but measure to find out then it is either the same a the 250/350 stuff or it is not stock to your truck. or your truck is really a 450 with a different cab or something
