Red Brake Calipers ?

Why do some trucks have red brake calipers? Are they different than the non colored ones?

Just curious..since my truck has red but everyone I know with a 08 has plain ones. They think I painted mine but I tell them they are from the factory.

I purchased the truck from the original buyer..He didn't do anything to the vehicle...I saw a photo of a truck on one of the forums with red calipers and was the 1st time I saw another set...I'll have to try and find it and ask that prson.

Very interesting, mine is an 08 and the calipers are not red so it's not an 08 thing. Maybe it's an F250/F350 thing. Is yours an F250?

My truck is a 2008 F350 SRW 4x4...The other truck I saw was a dually 4x4 with the red calipers.

This link has a Blk Dually w/ stacks. He has red as well. Page 9 about 3/4 of the way down.

http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/6-4...-see-em-9.html

My service manager thinks certain packages had the red calipers..I want to know what package.
