F150 supercab frame

Are the f150 & f250 supercab frames the same?

The cross members and the steering box locations are different. I am going through every scenario I can think of on how to convert my 78 f150 sc shortbed 4x2 to a 4x4. Luck for me I have a spare parts to help figure out wich will best. All opinions are welcomed

79 150 4x4 is the same as the 79 bronco i believe . My bronco had coil springs and 4 shocks in front , steering box on out side of frame rail . I wish i had it back , dumbest thing i ever did was to trade it for a crappy 92 ranger 4x4 .

From what I have learned on here, F150 Supercab 4x4's have leaf springs in the front. Only the regular cab F150 4x4's have the coils. Well, and the Broncos and F100s

I see that now. I appreciate you pointing that out for me. It makes sense. Since the f150 supercabs are on f250 frames. I think I am going to still use the coils since it does give a better ride. This truck will be used in the future to tow my Toy around to go 4 wheeling

If you go with coils then be prepared to either stretch the radius arms,buy a longer set or do so fab work to the frame. Where the radius arm mount should bolt up the frame curves different than a stock 150 4wd. There is nothing where the front bolt holes should be for the mounts.

But the super cab is on a f250 frame. Will that make a difference?
