    We currently have a new body style f350 diesel dually. My question is if the newest body style f250 diesels have the same terrible turning radius as the f350? We also have an f150 so I was wondering if the f250 falls in between those 2 somewhere or if it is just as bad as the 350?

    Not sure, I have a 250 and with a trailer I would not want to turn on a dime anyway. Its a truck, I do not expect to turn like a car.

    My 03 F250 turns pretty good. Almost as tight as my F150.

    The new '05 super dutys have a coil spring front suspension now. The turning radius is supposed to be a lot better.

    I have an old body style F350 and the turning radius of that thing is about 2 miles!

    My Isuzu NPR crew cab will do 2 circles in what my F250 4x4 does one.

    Same here. But 2500HD instead of a F250. Live is SO much nicer not having to drag a trailer around all the time!

    My 75' F-250 turns like a bus. And runs Like a yugo.

    Who cares you probally bought to use as a truck rather then a car right!! Also you have more power than two Isuzu combined with a 2500HD pulling them.

    The 05's have a 5 and a half foot less turning radius i read the other day. WAY better then the older trucks, my 96 turns for crap, but like said above, its a truck so i dont care.

    Buy a dodge youe can turn real sharp because they already have coils up front. it turns much tighter than any ford or chevy i have ever owned or driven. it has more power to with the cummins
