F-250/F-350 Difference's???

Okay, I'm having a debate with a gentleman on what is different between a 3/4 ton and a 1 ton. He is saying that the only difference is the springs that Ford places on the truck is what makes it the trucks different.

So is he right?? saying that the brakes, drive train, gear ratio, tires,etc..

I thought that the frame on a F-350 would be a little different because of the heavier loads it would encounter, I can see how the engine/ drive train can be the same, but I just thought there would be more too it

Taller rear block, stiffer springs, different badges...

Thats about it.

1999-02 (?) f250's have the Dana50 front end, after that they have the D60.

2" block f250, 4" block f350

overload springs are standard on the f350, optional f250

ford had about 100 different spring codes for trucks in those years. some were standard on the f350, some were standard on the f250. in the end they all ride like a brick sh1thouse

it seems to me that you could could get an f250 crew cab short box but not in a longbox?

that's about it as far as i know

there was a time where a f350 was eligible to be a business tax write off but a f250 wasn't. i think that started changing in '99 when every business owner bought a 350 so they could write it off and ride around with luxury and style.

I was under the impression that they all had D60 front ends. My dad's old F350 SRW has a 60 and it's an '02.

I think he's right to say that some of them had the Dana 50, Wikipedia agrees anyway but I haven't ever seen it

Do they put the 4.10 gears in some f250s? I thought those only came in the f350s.
