2015 F450

Just traded my F350 SRW LB on a 2015 F450. Should have it next week.

The waiting will kill me.

Congrats! I test drove a DRW and all I can say is the ride is much smoother and more Planted than a SRW. With the New GCWR of 40K lbs do you need a CDL to drive one?

Not for personal use...I used to drive a 40ft motorhome pulling a hummer and a Harley and didn't need one.

Thanks for the reply. I may upgrade and wanted to be sure. I'm thinking a huge slide in camper for my primary residence and want all the payload I can muster. The F-450 should fit the bill.

I think the GAWR is reduced on the F-450 because the weight of the truck is greater with the heavier axles. Gotta stay under that 14K rating. In reality, the F-450 will carry more due to the heavier axles and tires.

I drove both, the 350 drw and the 450...The 450 was a MUCH better ride, it felt really solid and smoooooooth...For the very small price difference it made sense.

I'm thinking the upgraded parts on the New F-450 has a lot to do with it's smoother ride. Between the two, the F-450 does seem to have a more comfortable ride. Decisions, decisions...

Looks to me like your mind is made up! Go ahead with 450 IMO, otherwise, you'll be "second guessing" yourself.....

Agreed. Wasn't trying to push anyone into a decision against a 450. It's always good to have full disclosure.
