Wide track?

I'v got a 2010, the wide track front axle from the 450 was an option back then. My buddy who ordered a 2013 350 loved the idea but cannot find an order code for the option even with help from the dealer.
Did this option get deleted after the 2010 model year?

Thanks guys.

It is no longer an option for the F350's after MY'11, as the axle is only available on the F450 Pickups.

Was a marginal option during the '08-'10 F350s, not a large selling point. Mainly because I don't think it was marketed well.

I'm in the process of looking to retrofit one of these onto my '07 TowBoss.

Cold be wrong, but I don't think it's an option for the 11+ models.

It is not an option either way after '11 MY, all F350 DRW trucks are normal Dana 60s with 35* knuckles and all F450 Pickups are wide-track Dana60s with 45* knuckles. The C&C F450/F550 remain the wide track.

Basically, the F450 Pickup offered in '11+ is nothing more than an F350 with the 4.30LS gear package (with minor weight rating adjustments 5600# FAWR/ 9500#RAWR - same 17" rims and brakes)- just like the '05-07MY TowBoss, with the addition of that wide track front end.
