2014 f250 rear block question

I've been looking at new superduties for a while now. I wanted an f350 because I hate the way the f250's look like they're carrying 1000pounds when they're empty. They sit too low in the rear for me.

Anyway, I stopped at my dealer and they had a few 2014 f250's. I thought they were f350's, because of how they sat. I took a look underneath, and every f250 had the same 4" rear block as the f350's.

I was wondering if anybody else noticed this, and if it was part of a special package, or standard equipment.

Thanks

They provably listened to customer feedback and gave them the same rake.

Kinda what I figured... There's a clear difference in the left over 2013's and the 2014's. Looks a million times better IMO.

Haven't paid much attention to that. I much prefer the leveled look for sure. Used to be the only difference in a 250 / 350 was the block size in the back and the badging on the side. Unless you are talking a dually of course. I will have to drive by the dealer and see what you are talking about.

The only other difference I could think of is that the 350 has a standard helper spring, and it's optional on the 250.

I just like the extra block because my truck will have around 1000lbs in it most of the time.

Yea, forgot about that. Wish my 250 had that. I have a 5th wheel T/H and will wish I had it I am sure. Haven't hooked to it yet but will in the next couple of weeks.
