F450 ??

so looking and am gonna come to the darkside and buy a ford for sure but now im trying to decide between a 450 or a 350?? what are the biggest differences? is it just the payload and towing or is there different hp/torque in the 450 etc etc. i need at minimum a 1 ton but thinking a 450 would do just as good. how the ride differences and so on thanks in advance.

I am a firm believer of overkill is normally just about right. If a 350 is the minimum of what you need and you have the chance to get a 450, Id say go for the 450. Work your equipment a little easier and itll last longer.

450 has less power, slower spool up as it doesn't have a vgt turbo, but more gear options

Detuned for more duty cycle

Because it has more weight ratings, it has less power to save the motor.
How much are you going to load it up? If it's max every day all day, F550.

it wont be max all the time but i do pukk a 53' gooseneck quite a bit and usually have my extendable forklift on it. also pull my rough terrain scissor lift, skidloaders, and metal buildings on em. so really dont need a 450 was just wondering about big differences. And also getting into a truck that doesnt go through front ends every 10,000 miles damn rams!!

IIRC, it is only the C&C f450 trucks that are detuned.

Yea, forgot that.
If you're doing this for business, better to be within legal ratings.
450s have wider front axles I think, bigger brakes, different gear ratios for rear diff, bigger wheels.
