What years had straight axels?

Hi, was wondering what years the 94-98 trucks had straight axels and what had the ttb. And if the 1ton and 3/4ton trucks used the same set ups.

I believe the 250's all had ttb Dana 50's and the 350's had the solid axle Dana 60's.

the 350's had the straight axle and the 250's had the ttb. if you saw a 250 with a straight it was probably a conversion kit.

IMO yes, because I prefer the solid axle. But you can lift a 250 also.

I have the 250 heavy duty. From my understanding the Heavy Duty is a one ton. The front end makes it a 3/4 ton. The do this for tags. The straight axel conversion is easy. If you havea donor vehicle.

The 250 heavy duty was used to differentiate it from the '97 f-250 light duty that looked like a '97 150. It is still just a 250. There are a few differences between 250 and 350, like the frame, number of leaves, etc. The 250's are easy to swap to straight axle, so if you find the right truck, don't let the TTb front throw you off. Just plan on spending $1000 to $2000 to put a solid D60 in it.
