For this, on a new van, Ford prices the 250 about $1000 higher. The total capacity difference is about 400 lbs. Both vehicles will carry over a ton and a half inside.

I wasn't looking at the 350, so didn't do similar research, but see no compelling reason for the difference to be anything other than springs, or the DRW axle option.

Another minor difference is that the 150 short wheel base is the only model available with barn doors, all others have sliders.
I have a 2016 long wheel base 250 with the "barn doors".....that's the way I ordered it.....sure wish they were available with the medium roof.

It's funny how calling a vehicle 1/2, 3/4, and 1 ton (150, 250, or 350) doesn't really mean anything these days. I took the "350" badge off the back of mine because our neighborhood doesn't allow 1 ton or larger trucks. I always associated the 350 or 3500 badge with a one ton truck. The title says 3/4 ton.

I'm pretty sure that only low roof models can have passenger side barn doors regardless of length. My 148'' wagon has barn doors.

I spent some time on this topic before ordering my Ford Transit. I ended up ordering a 150 as not a single sales person, Ford online or parts department could tell me what the difference is between the 3 series (in a long MR model). Here are the part numbers taken from 2 different Ford parts dealers.


150 axle w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-4234-A
250 axle w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-4234-A
350 axle w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-4234-A

150 axle housing w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-4010-J
250 axle housing w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-4010-J
350 axle housing w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-4010-J

150 leaf spring w/o dual wheel w/o 3.2L diesel part number is - CK4Z-5560-Q
250 leaf spring w/o dual wheel w/o 3.2L diesel part number is - CK4Z-5560-Q
350 leaf spring w/o dual wheel w/o 3.2L diesel part number is - CK4Z-5560-Q

150 rear hub assembly single w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-1109-A
250 rear hub assembly single w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-1109-A
350 rear hub assembly single w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-1109-A

150 rotor w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-2C026-C
250 rotor w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-2C026-C
350 rotor w/o dual wheel part number is - CK4Z-2C026-C

150 brake left caliper part number - CK4Z-2553-C
250 brake left caliper part number - CK4Z-2553-C
350 brake left caliper part number - CK4Z-2553-C

150 brake rear pad part number - CK4Z-2200-C
250 brake rear pad part number - CK4Z-2200-C
350 brake rear pad part number - CK4Z-2200-C

150 stabilizer bar rear part number - CK4Z-5A772-D
250 stabilizer bar rear part number - CK4Z-5A772-D
350 stabilizer bar rear part number - CK4Z-5A772-D

150 floor rail assembly part number - CK4Z-6110457-D
250 floor rail assembly part number - CK4Z-6110457-D
350 floor rail assembly part number - CK4Z-6110457-D

150 frame rail assembly part number - HK4Z-16054-C
250 frame rail assembly part number - HK4Z-16054-C
350 frame rail assembly part number - HK4Z-16054-C

A few sales people and parts department tried telling me the springs were different. I looked at a 150, 250 350 and measured the springs and they are all the same. The also carry the same part number (part numbers above) . They stated the part number is the same but the part is different per VIN number. I find this impossible as how the heck would the dealer order stock? Also when stock comes in how do they identify which spring is for which using the same exact part number.

The up charge for the long MR was as follows:
From a 150 to 250 with options is $1,200 up charge
From a 150 to 350 same options is $2200 up charge

That's a **** of an up charge for a door sticker & rear emblem

Here are the two sites I used to look up the parts:

SlowSBC - your a guy who will never be taken for a sucker. Best most thorough answer on this post. Thanks for the time and effort for the post. I want to do another conversion (currently have a DRW) on a smaller van, and could not see the difference of a 150 to 250 other than more money. Thanks.

Just business as usual for a car company, unfortunately.

Thanks a lot for doing this research!

It really is sad if there are no differences and the up charge is that high. Ford may be playing the liability game and up charging for it. I'd love to see how that would play out if an incident did happen and Ford tried to pin it on the vehicle exceeding it's payload rating.
