    Does any body know the range of years that Ford put the solid axle front end under the 250 and 350? Im talkin about the Pre-Superduty body syle. I like the look but Im never going to DD a Twin Traction Beam truck again.

    if I am not mistaken there was only a short time in the '80s that Ford TTB'd 250s and 350s.

    All the F350 trucks had a solid DD D60... the 250s had the D50 TTB

    No.

    F350s from 86-97 got the D60 front. 92+ are ball joint, but they're otherwise mostly the same.

    F350s from 80-85 got the D50 TTB front.

    The changeover might be 1/85 or something around there.... seems like it was a midyear 85 thing, but I'm not sure right now.

    F250s from 80-97 got either the D44HD TTB or D50 TTB depending on front axle GVW.
