i have a 5th wheel trailer, the gvwr on a single f350 puts me in good shape, f250 is borderline, f350 dually is overkill and 2 more tires to worry about. if someone wants to get all the weights right for towing, gvwr,gcwr,and towing capacity come into play. i ran into this problem with my old 99 f250. gcwr was fine, tow rating was fine, gvwr was not fine. i was overweight. i know the newer f250's have a higher gvwr than my old 99, but the problem has been finding a used crewcab longbed v10 f250 or f350. i found this f350, and the deal was good so io bought it. i went thru this height issue when i bought my early 99 as it had the 4" blocks, several trips to the dealer and i ended up with 2" blocks at fords expense. my dad's 05 dually has 2" blocks, his payload is higher than mine. so the question still remains. why the 4" blocks on a f350 single?
