Factory upgrades with newer F250's/F350's?

I'm sure this has been covered a lot but I couldn't find much trying to search...

I have a 2002 F250 7.3 ccsb and I was wondering what upgrades are to be had from using parts from newer ford trucks?

I know a few like the tow mirrors or front clip conversion/tailgate but what are some others both looks and performance or whatnot wise.

Thanks in advance

Dave

The late Dana 60 is better than the early ones. But it's under the coil sprung trucks.

suspension swap, seat swaps, mirrors, tailgates and tail lights, mostly exterior and interior.. there's not much, if any, from the newer trucks engine wise that'll swap in.

What about brakes? Are any of the newer trucks equipped with bigger rotors or better calipers than the 99-03 stock ones? You can also out the 08 & up rear diff cover on

I don't think the brakes will swap out, but i do know the 05+ has a larger disk brake than our trucks. I've heard of swapping the rear springs for 08+ springs since there longer and may result in a better ride..

I've heard that too! About the springs that is. Since they're longer that does require a different mount on the shackle or the other deal (can't think of name) they bolt to?

The front hanger has to be pushed forward a few inches. I think the guy who built the blue 6.0 single cab shorty did it, but I'm not sure.

Thought about the brakes, by the time you gathered the parts to swap it, if its possible, it would be easier and more cost effective to swap a complete front axle. Plus you gain larger front u-joints, larger spline count, better turning radius, and a coil suspension up front.

Another thing to look into is an excursion tank in the spare tire spot. I believe they're 44 gallons, and doesn't take much to make a mounting bracket if you have the tow hitch and a gooseneck hitch.. my plan is to eliminate the side tank and just run the excursion tank.

Oh ok I'll search around for that. I was talking about the rear end brakes- my bad I didn't clarify. I have a 2 wheel drive, not sure how the front end parts compare with the newer model front end parts either.

Interesting about the excursion tank. Kinda sucks though about the spare- you'd have to put it in the back of the truck and lose that room.
