Nice! I should have asked what the difference(s) are between the 350 and 450 here!

He will love the turning radius of the 450. They have a wide track front end which is wider than the 350, but the 350s front wheels turn 38 while the 450s turn a true 45 making much tighter turns. However, NEVER turn a steering wheel on a 450 to the lock position while the 4WD is engaged. You will snap one of the knuckles or ujoint on the front driveshaft. Other than that, the brakes, gears and towing/hauling capacity, it's much like the I want a 450!!!!LOL

I do love the turning radius. To get into our condo I have to make a 180 turn at a red light on a 4 lane road. In my old 2500 I would be CLOSE to catching the curb on the sidewalk when making the turn. I wasn't sure what to expect with this doing it the first time and to my surprise it turned much better. I knew it had the wide tract font end and that it would turn better, just didn't realize how much better. I looked online and it appears it has a 6' shorter turning radius than the F350s.
