Nope.. even if you do all the physical and structural changes the papers still determine what it is. How it came factory is what it is till it dies. Not even going through state patrol.
It sucks cuz there really is no differences basically.
I was thinking the same thing for when I buy a trailer... thinking of just putting some 350 stickers on the fenders and tailgate so visually it would not look questionable... might make most cops not think twice.. but the ones that do pull you over just tell them it was like that when you bought it lol

There is a 350 exactly the same as mine a hafe mile from my house but I could not afford a payment. I paid cash for this one when I came back from Iraq.

If you've already done all of your structural changes (leafs, etc) then go ahead and slap that 350 badge on there. They're identical trucks barring the suspension, really.

The ONLY DIFFERENCE between an F250 and a SRW F350 is the rear block, the fender badge and the GVWR on the door plate. Everything else, brakes frame springs etc, is the same.
