I have a ScanGuage on my 2010 F-350 V-10 and it is worth its weight in gold. I can read actual transmission and coolant temperature and understand what is going on as I climb grades like Wolf Creek...

The same situation existed in 1999. They sold an F-250 based on the F-150 platform, and an F-250 Superduty that was on the Superduty platform. The "light duty" F-250 wasn't available with the V-10,...

I had a 1999 V-10 pulling a fifth wheel that was much heavier than your trailer and much taller to boot. Once I changed the rear end from 3.73 to 4.30 (stock tires) it towed fine. But you've got to...

The short answer is "Yes", going from 3.73 t0 4.30 will make a huge difference in towing.

I had a 1999 F-250 V-10 that I first towed an 8000# travel trailer, and later an 11,000# fifth wheel. It...

I purchased a 1999 F-250 V-10 that originally had 3.73 gears. When I upgraded to a heavier fifth-wheel I swapped those out for 4.30's. Made a huge difference towing. Stayed in overdrive longer and...

I too question that a 30' travel trailer only weighs 5200 pounds. The published numbers for trailers are notoriously inaccurate. The only way to really know is to hit a CAT scale and see what the...

We have a 30', single slide 5th wheel with a GVWR of 13k. It weighs about 11k as we are using it right now. Our 2010 F-350 SRW handles it very well, with considerable reserve capacity on both axles...

131k on mine and I just finished a 1000 mile round trip pulling my 10K fifth wheel up into the Davis Mountains in West Texas. Best truck I've ever had.

Doug-

I have a '99 that I put a Banks Transcommand in a few years back. It worked great for a couple of years, until one day the truck started to shift incredibly hard. I was unloaded and chirping...

I've read through all of the threads, and I think that there is another difference that hasn't been mentioned. On my truck, a 1999 F250 SD, the stock tire was the LT235-85R16E. On the F350SRW, the...

My guess would be that if you can get your Ford dealer to do the work, the warranty should stay intact. But, many of the dealers will not swap out rear end gears, as it is pretty specialized work....

On my 1999 F250SD, there were two relays (and maybe two fuses as well, been a while) that had to be snapped into a big junction box under the hood. As mentioned above this box has a lot of the...

Sorry for the slow reply, but I've been out for a week. The price did include the gearset. I absolutely agree with Ken04 that the key to getting this done right is finding a good shop to set them...

My gear swap ran right at $850.00. I'd hoped to get out for about $600.00, but once they pulled the gears out we decided that the bearings needed to be replaced as well. My truck had about 40k miles...
