Thanks for the clarification.

Second that reaction. Actually I didn't realize the frame spacing was different.

After some more serious shopping I pulled the trigger on a DRW f350. Its not exactly the configuration I wanted but the deal was good enough that I bought it anyway.

I was shopping for a crew cab lariat, and ended up with an extended cab xlt.

It has the 14000lb gvwr package. I dont know if that ads anything other than a bigger number on the sticker though.

I think the only thing that it doesn't have that a standard F450 does is the wide front axle.
