F250 CCSB vs F350 CCLB

Been a forum member for a long time but Iíve been away for a while. Currently trying to work on deal on a couple different 19s. Iíve had an 06 F250 CCLB 6.0 for 12 years or so. I used to do HVAC work and needed the long bed and camper top to haul equipment securely but I donít need all that space now. Drove some F250 short beds that would meet my needs fine, but Iíve come across an older inventory 19 F350 SRW CCLB 6.7 that could be a good deal with the aged inventory rebate plus the dealers motivation to move 6 month old inventory. Would it be a mistake to buy the 350 if I really donít need it? I just like the long bed bigger truck better. Iím used to it and have no problem parking. I just donít want a punishing ride unloaded like the older 05-07 duallys Iíve driven in the past. I picked up an F350 dually for a friend once and drove it 1000 miles cross country with nothing but my luggage, and it beat the hell out of me on the choppy interstates of Louisiana and Arkansas.

Any insight would be appreciated.

I just purchased a F350 CCLB SRW. Coming from a CCSB 06 3/4 ton GM, the ride is rougher for sure, but definitely not beating me up. I will say tire pressure is king. At factory setting it was super rough but running about 10 psi lower in the front and 20 in the rear makes it MUCH better. I air it up for towing or loaded.

I wasn’t looking for a long bed but the deal was there, and so I got it. Personally I am happy I went the 350 just because of the increased payload. I don’t use it but I like having it. Plus I’m my experience, pricing on the 350s tend to be better, especially long beds. It’s a small market which means dealers get stuck with them.

I’d say go the 350 route if the price is right. But I didn’t even shop the 250 so I can’t compare them. Pic included for reference haha

Maybe check to be sure the F350 will not be taxed higher. For some states the plates/registration will be higher due to GVWR.

I just went with a 250 CCLB because it would fit more in the bed plus it has the 48 gal tank. My previous truck had a 30 gallon tank and it had a short range when towing even a smaller travel trailer. I couldnít afford to lose the bed space to install a transfer tank so I was stuck carrying several Jerry cans of diesel when towing.
I donít have that issue with the 48 gallon tank.

F350 LWB is the only way to go between the two IMO. I can't imagine how rough a SWB would be around here in Houston with our roads and especially HWY 225 which see all of the refinery traffic. The 48 Gallon Fuel Tank is nice and I have an additional 60 Gallon Gravity Flow Tank/Tool Box in the bed as well. The ride is a 1000% better than the 06 you currently have.

Thanks for the tips. Went back and forth with 4 different dealers today and ended up buying the F250 CCSB. The dealer with the old stock long bed 350 wouldnít hardly budge on price. I played two dealers against each other with identical trucks down to every option and ended up at 90 bucks over invoice minus holdback after dealer admin fees. Another $4500 of rebates and a PCO came off that, so I ended up at about 12k off sticker on a loaded CCSB King Ranch. Been reading pricing threads at various forums for months, and it seems like I did okay.

Picking truck up Saturday. Of course the dealer that I bought it from was 362 miles away instead of the one that was 20 miles away. Lol

Where did you find a crew cab long bed 250? I only found maybe 3 long bed SRW F350s and not a single 250, and I looked at a LOT of trucks. Iím coming from an 06 250 CCLB so Iím really hoping I donít miss the long bed too much.

Know exactly what you mean. I work in La Porte about half the year and have to drive on 225 several times a week. Rented a mustang gt last time I was there. It was almost painful on 225 with the shots to the spine. Never could figure out how the roads in Houston get so bad without freeze/thaw cycles. Even beltway 8 is starting to get rough. Surprising as new as it is.

I found my truck used through Enterprise car sales. 13,000 miles on it and when I went to pick it up they put a new set of tires on it at no extra charge.
