Not quite ~~ My 2016 F250 is close in many ways to my 2016 F350 but the 250 does have a slightly smoother ride. That is where it ends. The 350 has a much higher payload rating which air bags, additional springs or anything else can change. Air bags will level sag which will help stability, especially if in a payload overload situation. The 350 has higher rated wheels/tire, axels, and more even though the drive train can be the same. The 250 is limited to a 10,000# GVWR, not so the 350. When buying new the 350 is priced within $800 of a 250 and can often be bought for less. I have pulled 5ers to about 11,500 with the 250 but when getting much over that the 350 is the way to go even though both can be rated at the same 15,600.

I installed suspension air bags in our Pathfinder, and am very pleased with the results
