Difference between 250LD and 250 Super Duty

I have a 1999 F250 non super duty. I'm wondering what are the differences between the F250 and F250 Superduty

well for starters 250lds couldnt be diesel, had ifs instead of straight axel, couldnt haul as much, had the body of a 150 had 7 lug instead of 8 lug wheels, and had a different frame. other than that im not sure. basically they arent even close to the same truck. especially the 97-98s

The rear axle on LD doesn't have full floating axles like on Super Duty does have. Can't haul as much.

well clearly you know nothing... you may think that drivetrain wise nothing is different but you have to atleast see that exterior fenders and front end are different

I think that the F250 name was changed to the F150 7700 series around 2000. Basically it was a heavy duty F-150, but not quite as heavy duty as the Super Duty F-250

F250 LD, Super cab, 2wd has a payload capacity around 3000 lbs.

F250 Super Duty, 2wd has a payload capacity around 3600 lbs.

(not exact, found those numbers via google)

Thanks!

Jerem

Pretty much. The F150/F250 LD are about 1500 lbs lighters on average, The 4x4 version in the F250LD is IFS, The F250 Superduty has a straight Axle 4x4. You had more engine options with the Superduty, You could get Diesel, V10, or 5.4. I think with the F250 LD you got the 5.4 v8 or the lesser displacement 4.6. No diesel. The truck looks like a F150, drives like an F150, but has a lot more payload. Oh, if you wanted a light duty truck back then and you wanted 3.73 gears, you had to get a F250 LD.

My 97 F-150 Supercab 2wd, 5.4, 3.55 rear end, automatic has an 8000 lb towing capacity, but the payload is only 1780 lbs.

The 97 F-250 LD Supercab, 2wd, 5.4, 3.73 rear end, automatic has an 8,600 lb towing capacity. Payload around 2900 lbs.

So yes, it was an in between truck. I don't think to many of them were made because the price difference in the F250 LD and a regular Super Duty was not that different.

And this goes to show you that Not all F250's and all f150's are the same. I just found out that my 97 f150 has the same transmission that Ford put behind the 97 F350 Powerstrokes. My bet is that yours does too.

Thanks!

Sorry, I read the question wrong. I guess what I meant to say is that they have nothing in common other than being fords. I do believe I once saw a LD f250 with the 4.2 but I could be wrong.

I like the green one better, LOL. Then again I am a little prejudice,


Is the rear seat leg room in ths HD F250 supercab less than the Supercab F150/F250LD? It seems that the HD F250 has less leg room in the back than the F150, but I have ZERO experience.

Thanks!

I havn't been in both types within a close enough time frame to really tell but the 250SuperDuty extended cab does have good leg room in the back to my memory and so does the 150 extended cab
