F350 4x4 Supercab?

Hi all, I've been a lurker for many years, but never posted much. I've had several Ford trucks over the years and currently have a 1995 F250 4x4 SC long bed with a 460. I've been gathering information to do an SAS conversion on it and I just realized Ford didn't make an F350 SC 4x4? Does anyone know why they didn't have this configuration back in day? Just curious...

I don't know why, but likely just trying to keep down the number of possible combinations to simplify the assembly line.

From what I know, the only way you could get a SuperCab F-350s of that era was as a dually. And you couldn't get a dually 4WD pickup. So yes, no F-350 SuperCab 4WD.

Nothing Special, you bring up a good point about the dually, Why didn't Ford produce a 4x4 dually until the '99 Super Duties came out? GM was making them before that and you'd think Ford would match the competition.

Especially considering that traction is greatly reduced when running duals.Ford made cab and chassis F350 4wd duallies but no pickups.There really were limited combo's back during the pre-superduty era.No short bed F350's of the era either.I think a crew cab,shot bed combo was F250HD only and I think like '97 only at that lol.
It's not like a 4wd dually pickup would of been anymore difficult to build than a c&c so who knows?

I think the F-250HD CCSB were '96 and '97 (mines's a '97). And I think the F-250HD SCSB were '95 - '97. But I could have those flipped.

And yes, F-350 was only long box in any pickup configuration.

My friend has an F350 extended cab long bed 4x4. I have never questioned him if it was actually an F350 though. I will ask him for the VIN next time I see him.
