When I was shopping I found the only difference between the 150 and 250 was the rear spring part number and the emblem on the rear door. The springs list for about $300 and the emblem about $15, if memory serves me.
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.
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
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.
