Available Payload = GVWR - current weight.
Since F250's are paper handicapped at 10,000 GVWR the payload they can safely handle is more than the sticker.
The difference between a modern F250 and a F350 SRW is the extra 2 inches of block under the rear springs... and nothing else.
This tells me: I can safely use the F350 SRW numbers... as long as I don't bottom out my rear springs, since I have two inches less of travel.
Many folks disagree, however I don't lose sleep over it.
Oh crap. Now we've introduced logic into the discussion.
But, I will point out that, at least on MY 2015 Super Duty trucks, the 350SRW also had an overload spring. Since my 2015 F250 has the "camper package", it actually has that as well, so your statement would be accurate for my F250.
