One question, amyone running the camper package on there F 250? Adds extra leafs in the front and extra in the rear with a overload spring as well. The rear has a stabilizer bar as well.Wondering how it handles with a heavy 5er.

I have a 2011 F-250 with the camper package and have a flagstaff 5ver. It drops the back end so the overloads are just barely touching the rubber pads. I recently installed airbags because it looked like it was really squatting but was only down about a 1 1/2" due to the truck riding level. I run the airbags with 30psi unloaded, then hook up the fver and the truck sits level now.

The turning radius is just terrible on an F250 I agree. I just took mine in for service and had a $500.00 bill when done or so. I asked the mech. what is the difference between mine an a SW 350. He said if I added a rear leaf spring and changed my front end springs, Nothing. How true that is I do not know,

F2350 srw has a 1" larger rear block and a different door sticker than the F250 srw. That's it.
Camper package diff story.

AMG, that's what I saw as well. I am going to get axle codes off the F 350's at the dealership and compare, The springs are actually heavier on my 250 than the 350 I looked at. I can see them putting a lighter axle on a F 250 as the same engines and transmissions are in both trucks with the same torque capability.

There's posts on powerstroke forum and ford-trucks forums where people compared exact Ford part numbers and say they are 100% identical other than the block , sticker, and logo outside. Axles same. Leaves same, brakes same, etc etc. Search search on powerstroke.org you'll see the threads

100% correct!

The camper package is just a stiffer sway bar in the rear.

The difference on the 2013+Chevy/GMC 2500 to 3500 SRW is just the rear spring packs. One extra leaf on the 3500. That's why I did a 2500 and added the Firestone air bags. Ride of a 2500 and capacity of a 3500 SRW, with exception to the sticker on my door.

I'll also add to the F-250 vs F-350 SRW discussion, that you can order an F-350 with the 10,000 GVWR sticker. At that point, the only difference between the F-250 and F-350 SRW is the 1" block and the emblem on the sides. Otherwise, they are the same truck. Why would someone do this? Well, good question (which basically is the reason for the F-250 and F-350 difference) is that in many states, a vehicle with over 10,000lbs GVWR requires a commercial registration from the DMV, and can at times cost more to insure.

I dont even own an F-250 but I just know all this from my searching. I am currently trying to figure out how to get rid of my 2015 F-150 for an older F-250 diesel :P
