You're talking about 2011, or any other specific year? It's my understanding, and I was no math major that there's about 100 between the two, F350 - F250 = F100 ?

What's heavier a pound of feathers or a pound of wet sand?

I think you want a 35xsomething-less-than12.5x17, like a 285/80/17, 35x11.5x17, 35x10.5x17 or something similar.

Well, after seeing the first picture all I can think to say is something my dad used to say, "You can't park that piece of ***** right there!" Sorry man, maybe it's time to get into a different...

I've only had the Cooper STT on my Super Duty. I ran BFG ATs on Jeeps. Seems you realize there will be a difference; however, I'll still say the Cooper STT are too soft (I have 295/70/17 D ). I...

As a person in Oregon that's asked ODOT and had a contact that worked there, the way it works is F250/F350 regardless of GVWR are treated the same. And, more than that, in a snow zone we're all...

Ditto what he said, and what I was trying to say. One thing is the Detroit Electrac (which I think was discontinued) was a limited slip (True Trac) that you could fully lock (a lsd when unlocked). ...

If you're getting a load moving and that sort of thing the locker is fine to run on the road. Most lockers will unlock when you go around corners, I don't know if Ford's does, but most do. So, they...

I'd opt for 4.30 gearing, but that's just me, especially if it's for weekend getaways and not "commuting". If you're putting a bunch of miles on it, on the freeway, 3.73. If you're doing weekend...

That's a huge range, with a difference of 30% between 3.31 and 4.30 in both rear wheel torque and RPM. Seems you'd want to narrow it down quite a bit more. Think about what you want or what...

The axle has a separate manufacturers rating as well (Ford doesn't manufacture them) and they are rated higher from the manufacturer and de-rated by Ford. It's what they want to "print", not what...

The GAWR or GVWR or whatever you happen to be talking about is limited by the lowest rated part, wheels, tires, axles, whatever. So, your GAWR could be limited based on 3195 lbs E rated tires and...

If you're going to be on sand, I'd go with the 17" wheels. If you're going to air them down, drop the pressure to whatever, 20lbs or so, the smaller wheel will give you more sidewall (for the same...
