How to make a 350 from a 250??

I am wondering what the difference is between my 250 and a 350. Is it just rear springs or a block. Has anyone swapped theirs out. My 250 seems to sit low on the rear.

Not sure on the specs, but level it and put 325/x/x tires on it. Mine sits up high like that.

Mine seems pretty level right now. It just seems especially low in the back.

You could sell it to me for 35, and go buy you a 350.

I think my truck looks like it squats in the back just a little.

I could be wrong but I think it has to do with the camper package and the fx4 package. I may just lift the damn thing up about 6"

I don't think my truck has the camper package, does yours?
