F250/F350 BIG difference

Could anyone tell me the difference between F250 and F350 for a 1996??? I have a 1996 F250 4x4 with 4:10 gears.

How can I convert to a F350??? Is the C-Channel frame bigger? or is it just the leaf springs? What are the differences?

Thanks a bundle.

Cheers https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...givemebeer.gif

it will be a rough ride in the f-350 b/c what it has a straight axle in the front with a leaf and shock, no coil over shock. just like zaairman said.

... My dad's work's 2003 F-350 CC SB dually V-10 4x2 rides smoother than my 4x4 F-250 with snowplow front springs.
And the F-250s didn't use coil overs back then either...

Just get some air bags, there e-z to install and is adjustable to suit your ride likings. You can even order some bags that will carry 5000lbs+ each. Thats my 2 cents.
