That 3.55 rear end would be a killer for me. My Tundra has 4.30 rears and a six speed tranny which came with the factory tow package. The four wheel drive also takes away from the gross towing weight capacity figure around 1000 lbs.

Justin,

I agree, nice F-350......, and is on my short list as well. Ford has a great diesel with the 6.7L.

Congrats on the F350, a lot different to the F150!! Makes the F150 seem like a toy.

One thing to take a look at that not many have mentioned, is the specs for the reciever on the truck. I was suprised to see that the reciever on my F250 is only rated for 1250 lbs of tongue weight. I could be over that at Max GVWR of my trailer at 15% tongue weight (1275 lb @ 8500 lb max TT GVWR). I was suprised that the F150 had a reciever tongue weight rating of 1130 lbs so not that much more with the F250. I still need to be careful how I load and balance the trailer. It'll be interesting to get my rig weighed at a CAT scale to see where I'm at.

Does the Diesel give you a more beefy reciever?

When I was looking at the F-350's SRW's a couple of months ago, all the F-350 body styles came with the 1,750lb WD mode OEM receiver except the F-350 Supercab with the short box...., it came with the 1,250lb WD mode OEM receiver, didn't matter gasser or diesel.

I couldn't get anyone to tell me why, because the GVWR of 11,500lbs remained the same with all the F-350 SRW models.

I don't know how the F-250 OEM receiver's were spec'd (gasser/diesel).

Bob

On Edit: Checked my notes, and the F-350 6.7L Super Cab Short Box comes with a 2" OEM receiver not a 2.5" receiver..., that explains the rating difference but doesn't explain "why" when the GVWR's are the same with another body style.

Nice truck, know your towing experience just went up by about 40 fold!

My F-250 has the same hitch rated the same[via sticker on hitch]. The maximum tongue weight for my truck is 1450lbs. with weight distribution. { 2012 Ford towing guide }. In hindsight, I really should have considered an F-350 as it was not much more $. BTW, great looking truck.

I have a 2012 F-250 crew with the 6' 9" bed,diesel power and 3.55 gears. Not sure why a gasser hitch would be rated lower.
