Neither frame is flat top across the reaf axle; they both have a hump on top, and also get narrower top to bottom at the axle. The F 350 frame is 5.5" high at the axle hump, the F Superduty is 6" there.

this is just what i wanted to know.there was a debate about this on obn a while back,and i never did get the real facts.

unless of course by then the 2011 f450 6.7l will probably be in my price range.hard to say i guess.i just hate the new styling.

I'd be looking for a medium-duty to heavy-duty truck shop. As someone said earlier, lengthing frames isn't uncommon on bigger trucks.
