Some things I noticed ...........

Today I went driving through the local stealerships looking at some 2011/2012 superduties.
I noticed that:
-The 2012's now have a steel oil pan for the engine, as they should
-None of the trucks for 2012 have the aluminum diff cover, but the 2011's did.
-The front sway bar end links are now the ****ty and tiny ball joint swivel style. They will be gone in no time.
-The rear leaf packs are diferent. It used to be an f250 would have 4 leafs then the lower overload and sometimes an upper overload. Now Im seeing 2 thick leafs and then a lower overload. Only 1 truck had the upper overload and it was a srw 350. Now which package adds the upper overload? The camper package or the upgrade gvw package.

So far I cant find what I like.. Luckily im just looking now since my 6.4 is still in the show with no word.

Must be the upgraded GVWR adds the upper overload. That is what I have and I don't have a camper package.

Ok, cool thank you. But you do have the sway bar correct?
