If 67+ F250 4X4 frames are all the same, how do they differ from the 65/66 F250 4x4 frames?

Does that mean that the 73+ F250 4x4s did not get the longer box?

They are quite similar. The bottom contour of both frames over the rear axle is the same. Th slicks are flat on top while the later ones have a bit of a bump to keep the rail taller.

If you put a bump body on a dent Highboy frame, the cab to box gap will be about an inch too big if the wheels are properly centered in the wheel wells.

Black is the correct color for American built 61-66 F250 4x4 steering columns, either Standard or Custom Cab.
