F450/F550 Owners

Being that most people here have F250/F350 a thread is needed for us owners of real trucks to share info that might get lost in other threads. Most parts sites don't even have 450/550 options in the drop down box. Hopefully here we can share some hard won info. Any questions? Say hello and be subscribed.

My exact reason for starting this thread. Mine is a 2004 bastard child with mostly 550 components.

What's a 550? It's a 350 that can do real work.

Subscribed. I love my truck but hate the fact that people trip out that its a 450. I traded my 01 F350 with 19.5's for my 08 they are both white. Some people dont even notice that I got a new truck and others make comments like "F450! why do you need a truck that big!" People are so stupid that I took pictures of both trucks parked in the same spot in my driveway just to show that it isnt any different than a F350. Also tired of it being called a "commercial vehicle". I got a price on a Ravelco anti-theft device and they want to charge me $50 more because its a 450. I told them that for install of a Ravelco my F450 is no different than a 250 or 350. They said it was there policy so I didnt buy one...

Cummins forum has a cab and chassis area.......

Seriously though, a cab and chassis sub forum would be great, especially with them being completely different animals than pick ups, I think us C&C owners are being left in the dark.

This thread should help with both. I have a cab and (16')chassis also. I think we'll find that most 450/550 are C&C, but pick up guys are welcome too.

Zeibart did the same thing to me. All i wanted undercoated was the cab (regular cab at that) and the frame. Not the flatbed. And they wanted 125$ more then an f350 because mines an f550. I tried explaining that they dont have an entire box to do like a regular pickup. And i tried explaing that my truck is not physically bigger then any other. They didnt care. I left. And now i do it myself.
