2013 F-250 VS F-350 SRW

I am looking to get a different vehicle. I see a 2013 F-250 and F-350 SRW for sale for close to the same dollar amount and millage. What is the REAL difference in the two trucks?
Thanks!

The amount of weight you can carry in the truck, or the max loaded trailer weight you can tow.


There are some functional differences but they are all to support the above comment.

The only physical difference is the F350 has a taller block in the rear, the drivetrain brakes and suspension are the same on both. The F350 has a higher capacity just because it's an F350, so they gave it a higher weight rating.

A taller rear block is only one of the physical differences. Some differences are driven by options selected when the truck was built.

Depending on what year, the blocks may be different. I think in 2015 the 350 and 250 got the 4" block. I think it is really 10 cm.
Like HA said, its basically capacity and what goes to support it- heavier springs up front and rear. I would suspect a 250 with the camper prep package would come close to, or meet, the 350 GVWR.
I would actually like to add the camper prep top out springs to my truck along with the sway bar instead of air bags. No moving parts and no stiffer ride. I figured the sway bar and top out springs to be significantly cheaper. But I think I have to buy the whole spring pack at 400 bucks a side. That is not economical.

Isn't the pinion or something different? I looked into it a while ago and something had 35 teeth on the F-250 and 37 teeth on the F-350. This was when I was looking at the difference between 250 and 350 with my 6.0 so I don't know if it's different with the newer trucks.

@Red Ford : Yes, the rear axle is supposed to be a 35 spline variant. Not to mention that an F350 may come with a HydroBoost braking system over what the F250 uses.


For SRW: Remember the F250 will always have a lower GVWR compared to the F350 regardless of what items are installed. Yes, there were F250s with Snow Plow and Camper packages installed. They resembled the identical F350 components BUT the F250 GVWR 10k compared to the F350 GVWR 11.5k as the door sticker states.


SRW F350s came stock with the overload spring. F250s optioned correctly could have the SAME rear spring pack.


@The Evil Twin : If you hawk Craigslist the overloads pop up from time to time. For the rear sway bar there is a guy local to me that has the Hellwig bars for sale new-in-the-box. I would need to check if it's a front or rear bar. I have the HellWig setup front and rear which makes a WORLD of difference in steering/body roll feel. The ride overall isn't stiffer just cause the sway bars are installed.

The diesel Superdutys have always used hydroboost brakes from the F250-F550.

According to Ford all SRW F250s are Vacuum Boost, while SRW F350s are Hydro-Boost. I'm sure this could change (possibly, but not likely) with certain option packages. In the newer model years the SRW trucks are all Vacuum Boost.

So where does the diesel f250 get it's vacuum from for the brakes? Certainty not from that tiny vacuum pump that's for the vents and ESOF, do they have a belt driven vacuum pump?
