250/2500 vs 350/3500 SRW Comparison

Here is a little food for thought.

I gotta get one of those manly looking hood scoops that are on the Chevy trucks! They would make my ol' F250 look bad to the bone... actually they look kind of silly on a Chevy bwhahahaha I hope the truck experts got all that techno babble on that link. The 3/4 ton and 1 ton looked about the same if the 3/4 ton was up-fitted with stuff for towing. And a new F350 diesel is almost $10K more than the gas engine and since I don't need the capability the only place I might have a chance of recouping all that money would be if I sold it and I don't frequently sell my trucks if they are still capable of being kept in service.

Well I learned something, the f250 rear shocks are different then the f350 rear shocks. The rest about fords I knew, never looked up Dodge or GM details.

Great article.... I think many folks are unaware of just how similar the trucks are.

New 1 TON... $50,000 plus! New Hood-scoop... J C Whitney $20.00 +/- ! You choose. Other than that I read a lot of "Techno-babble". They make two trucks in the HD class regardless of manufacturer. 3/4 or 1 TON, Of course there's a difference!

p.s. My '65 GTO had a hood scoop too! Didn't work, but sure looked COOL! I painted it "Candy Apple Red" so no one could miss it... LOL
