F250 vs. F350 what parts are different?

Guys,
What parts are different on the F250 than F350 in 2008?
- f/r springs
- f/r shocks?
- side badges?
- available gear ratios?
Thx,
M

springs and rear axles and the 350 might still have offered a 4:10....2008 was first time for 3:55 since the 1987 f350...i think.

Please don't quote me on it, but I had always heard the big difference is the 4" spacer block in the rear spring stack of the 350, as opposed to the 250's 2", and the addition of a helper spring on the 350 rear springs.

I had priced out (built online) two similar trucks, one 250, the other 350, same options, back in '08. The price difference between the two was $200 more for the 350. I can't imagine they are truly that much different for the $200 difference.

Anyone here know for sure?

They offered 3.55's in the OBS(1997) trucks, only got rid of it in the SD's. Unless you are refering to 350's only, then you may be correct.

The rear block is true. The 250 and 350 use the same spring codes, just depends on the setup.

Really all you pay for is GVWR and GCWR, SRW 3/4 and 1 tons are the same.

SD 250's have never had a 60 rear, they had a 70.

I believe you are wrong with the SRW being the same GVWR. Cause my 350 is rated at 11,500. I don't think a 250 is rated that high.

No I mean physically they are the same truck. The difference you pay in price is for a higher GVWR and GCWR in the 350.

And your GVWR is 11500 in your SRW? Thats cool. I've always though about buying a newer f450 for the GVWR and GCWR with a shot drivetrain so I can just drop a 7.3 and zf6 in it so I can have a great tow pig I can still work on
