Why go F450? Comparing the 2011+ F450s to the 2008-2010 models
http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/25516092.cfm
The 2008-2010 F-450s had the larger axle (Dana 110), frame, wheels, and brakes of the F-450 chassis cab. The 2011+ models are essentially an F-350 with the 4.30 axle ratio, same as the 2005-2007 tow boss package.
