250 VS 350

moving from a DRW 350 CC to a CC 250. Only problem is not a lot that I like on the market. There is a lot of 350's though (single rear wheel) MPG is still important to me since i have to drive a lot. what would be my MPG difference in a 250 VS 350 CC 6.0? Im guessing there would be due to the towing capacity extra weight.

assuming everything is stock, Ill factor in the slight lift and tires later.

the only difference between the 250 and 350 in those years is the block in the rear suspension. 250 has a 2 in 350 has a 4in. Other than that you can order a 250 and 350 exactly the same

They are the exact same except for the block and I like the 350 srw because they sit higher

The mileage all depends on what gears you have and the 250s and srw 350 usually have the stock 3.73s.

My crewcab, longbed 350 weighs in at 8k. That's using the scale at the landfill.
