Parts compatibility with F-series

Currently had a 2002 F-350 for work. I'm looking at getting a family vehicle, and I was thinking of getting an Excursion. A significant factor is just how many of the parts are compatible between the two, as it makes life easier to only have one set of maintenance procedures to worry about. The body is obviously different, but how much of the frame/suspension/etc. is the same?

Pretty much everything is the same mechanical between a Super Duty and an Excursion. The only exception is the 2005 Excursion has the older leaf spring front end like the 99-04 SD trucks, 05+ Super Duty trucks got coil springs in the front.

Exactly my reason for getting our Ex... 3 trks that take the same spare parts. From the doors forward they are identical in each model year. Naturally a 2004 Ex with a 6.0 is going to have difrent motor parts than a 2000 F250 with a 7.3, but the wheel berrings brakes steering etc will be the same or similar.

Nothing much... I had a 'ricer' chrome tip on it that had some glasspack type muffler packing that took the edge off the noise but it recently 'fell off'. I ran the dually the same way.... not objectionable noise levals.
