What are the differences in the two 3/4 tons offered in 89-93? How can they be differentiated/identified? Are parts interchangable or are there major differences(spring spacing length, frame specs, steering linkage, etc.)? I have noticed a significant difference in static height. Is this due to just different springs or is there more to it?

I am also still looking for a source for the factory optional fender flares for our 1993 W-250. Any info?

Thanks for any information.

I would like to know the difference between the standard duty and the heavy duty 3/4 4x4. I have noticed a visual difference in trucks as far as height and so forth. I know that in 1994 they had both a standard and a heavy duty 3/4 ton, so I assumed that they also had such designations in 1993. Thanks for any info.

The standard duty (7500# GVW) had a CAD D44 in front and an 8 lug 9 1/4 in the rear, and used the NP241 transfer case.
The heavy duty had a D60 in front and a 60 or 70 rear, and used the NP205 transfer case and manual hubs.
The Club Cab frame is thicker than a regular cab.
Depending on the GVW some trucks had a second set of overload springs in back.
The Snow Commanders and Diesels did sit higher.
