4wd F350 frame vs a F-superduty frame

Can anyone tell me for CERTAIN if the 2 frames are the same or different.

They are both front leaf spring.
They are both the same 161" wheel base.
They Both are powerstrokes.

My local garage totaled his 97 4wd F350 wrecker and in need of a donor frame/ truck. And I have my 96 F-superduty sitting in my driveway collecting dust. I will sell him my F-superduty but I need to know all of his F350 parts will bolt on. I think they will. The only difference i see is that his C-N-C truck uses 2.5" rear springs and stamped steel hangers, while my F-superduty uses 3" springs and cast hangers.

So if anyone KNOWS FOR SURE, please chime in

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: 4wd F350 frame vs a F-superduty frame

The F-SuperDuty is a C&C and I think the frame rails are narrower than the F350.

On Edit: both trucks are C&C. I'll check my manuals tomorrow to confirm.

From what I have been told is that it's just the back half of the frame that is narrower on the cab and chassis truck's, the front part of the frame is the same.

Frame width is 100% identical. You're correct, only difference is in the rear spring hangers.
