Super Duty

Does a f250 or f350 SuperDuty come in a 2x4 diesel configuration?

Or, does Ford force you to buy a 4x4 if you want diesel power?

Yes, to your first question.

No, to your second question.

Shouldn't be hard to find a 4X2 SD with a Powerstroke in the Southern states, might want to expand your search area look in on some of those "mega" truck dealers down that way.

FWIW, you're going to take a huge hit in resale/trade in for a two wheel drive model. For the extra $2800 Ford wants for the 4X4 option, it's better to just get it unless you plan on keeping the truck forever. If you do go 4X2, make darn sure it has a locking rear axle.

Assuming you are talking new, I suspect their website would answer your question.

The website sucks. Not user friendly at all.

A f250/F350 is not a big seller in a 4x2, Im guessing that based on very limited dealer inventory.

A F250 or above should plainly list the GVWR and the GCVWR on either the website or window sticker. It doesnt.

I will most likely buy used anyway.

4x4 ... I'd rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Saved more *****es than my own many times. A good wench doesn't hurt either. All the weight on those trucks is in the front end and if you get on wet grass or somebody pees behind the tire and you don't have Drive Wheels under that weight oh, there you are.

There are scores of 2wd diesel Super Duty trucks around here but a ton more 4x4. The dealer down the street has 5 diesels and 5 gas 2019 2wd on the lot right now, no 4x4. The guys a bit more north of me have 19 2019 diesels all 4x4. The good deals all seem to be on the 4x4s anyway at least right now. If you look at the specs on the Ford site (which I agree isn't very good for info but more to pimp the bling on the trucks) it's a 14k GVWR with a max TAG tow of 21k. They used to have a much handier chart/matrix that compared all the F series truck capacity. It appears nowhere to be found...

I use 2 wheel drive 2500hd gmc for a service truck. I order them new as dealers in Maine only stock 4 wheel drive. I drive the whole state and 2 wheel drive works for me. Good tires and weight gets me to where I need to go. 30 to 40 thousand miles a year. If I was off road it would be a different story. I drive them until they are spent so resale isnt a big deal to me.

Well, that was supposed to say "winch" haha ...
It still applies.
I have a Warn M-15000 on a homemade 1/2 inch steel channel plate welded to a male/female hitch so I can use it on the front receiver hitch or the rear, and a trailer hitch can still go in the front of it. With the front receiver I can quickly guide a trailer into tight spots and with the winch I can load or unload a trailer with ease. With a heavy duty snatchblock and pulley I can double or even triple the pulling power to 30k and 45k lbs with the cable rated for 60k continuous. I'll not likely ever need that much...

Not on topic, but I was at a car show a couple weeks ago and after I parked my Cobra replica, a huge F650 pulled into the spot next to me.
Made my car look like a hot wheels micro.



From what I could find online, I think Ford only sells the chassis cab and you have it sent to a commercial dealer for them to outfit the back end. I saw one of these online for $87k.

It's not the 70s/80s anymore. If you're trying to find a vintage K10 or 4x4 F100, it takes some looking down here. They're more prevalent in the northeast (if they survived) and A LOT were purchased out west.

No so with 90's+ stuff. You'd have an easier time throwing a rock and hitting a Z71 or a 4wd F150 than finding a 2wd. With fuel mileage being close and 4wd being packaged with other cool options, it "just makes sense" to buy a 4x4, even in the south. We like to go mud whompin'

The resale is one of the reasons I bought a Z71 again (that and we do get snow at least once a year now and it's so much easier to pull a boat out of the water on a wet concrete ramp with 4wd)

My point was that in the context of the 48 states, you're much more likely to find a 4X2 in the southern half than anywhere else.

If you find a newer 2WD non-WT or service body truck around here,it's an incredible oddity. Those types are generally relegated to larger contractors or fleets and are run until either the wheels or body falls off, whichever occurs first. The small contractors around here all have blinged & lifted crew cab 4X4 HighCountry/Denali/King Ranches purchased as a tax write-off - cuz IRS.
