2004 f350 diiference than 05 - 06

I have been looking for a clean F350 and I found one exactly like I have been looking for. This truck has all of the equip I want including the Camper
package that raises the GVWR. My question is that I have been looking at 05 and 06's so what is the difference between these and this 04? Are the 05 - 06's any better? I noticed that it does not have a boost gauge in the dash but I will install and gauge cluster any way so no biggy.

I think in 05 they had more HP and TQ , diffrent front end , diffrent suspension and the inteior was a little diffrent . are any of them better nope , not to me they all have issues .03 all the way to 07 some years are better then others but they all have issues some will say it aint so but just do a little reaserch on here and you will see that all years had issues.

I have an 04 and the steering radius is absolutely horrible. Have to back in every where you go. I hear that it is much improved with 05 + trucks but I have not driven one.

Big change that I know of is going to coil springs in the front and tightening the turning circle. Haven't driven an earlier one, so I don't know how much tighter it turns.

What I do know is that my 06 F350 rides very smooth, amazingly smooth for a 1 ton truck.

Engine should be the same.
