My first thought was that it's simply a typo, but if it were why would they have a different forged aluminum wheel specifically for the F-450? Mike, the engineer for the 6. I'm willing to bet that Ford figures that the majority of F-450 buyers don't really need the heavy duty hardware for their towing application. You have your mind made up and nothing anybody is going to say here will change your mind. I'd bet they're right, too. They do have a nicer cab than Ford, and now they are going to have the same power train too.
From 08-10, the F450 pickup was built on a F350 frame with F450 axles, wheels, and brakes. I could go on and explain in great detail how the new 6. I want a V-10 F-350 like I have now with manual everything and 4. It's been covered and recovered. Maybe it's a different design to accommodate calipers around those big brakes? It seems that no one ever wants to specify what model they are talking about in a post either.
Ford is not building anymore pickups with the V10. They do have a nicer cab than Ford, and now they are going to have the same power train too. By the way, the 8 lug wheels on the 2011 F450 pickup should give you a clue as to the rotors underneath. It is basically now an F350 with a higher tow rating and a 4. Most of these changes seem to be rather unpopular around here and it's commonly thought that the F-450 will be nothing more than a dressed up F-350. I want a V-10 F-350 like I have now with manual everything and 4.
The F-450 pickup is still rated for 33,000 lbs max combined gross weight, which was the same as the old F-450 pickup. The old F350 did too, so it only makes sense that without any true F450 chassis components, that it would! Okay, so in the past we've been able to read about the changes being made to the 2011 F-450. The big rotors are 10 lug. I am truely, very disapointed, and will vote my displeasure with Ford with my pocket book. Now for has completed the neutering of the F450, by basically turning it into the new F350 tow boss. I know the frame rails are different, but I imagine you could put some form of a utility box on it.
For improved fuel economy and higher top speed. You can still find some left over 09-10's on the lots. Sorry fpr the profanity Kewat, but I am a very frustrated super duty truck owner. Is the F-450 offered with single rear wheels? They might have a better load rating on the tires or springs, but it won't be much different from a F350 dually. It seems to be a simple marketing ploy.
That dead horse ain't gonna get back up, no matter how long you beat it. Seems to me like the 2011 F-450 pickup isn't going to be any less of a truck than the 2010! I don't want a F-450. But it's not as if such a truck isn't available anymore. Is the F-450 offered with single rear wheels? Yes it will be lighter and get better mpg than the old F450 pickup. He had a regular pick-up box mounted to the frame and except for the huge space you see between the box and the frame in the wheel well, it looks factory. This makes sense, but everywhere I search I see the larger 15.

I want a V-10 F-350 like I have now with manual everything and 4. I don't want a F-450. I know, seems far fetched. It seems that is has indeed been neutered. Ford dropped manual transmissions in the Super Duty line due to low demand.
. Sorry fpr the profanity Kewat, but I am a very frustrated super duty truck owner. I read your posts on the other 6. . .
