    i just installed a blizzard chassis on a 2007 f350, the front bar is fine, its the sides which rub when the wheels turn, everyone has told me that it should fit comming off a 2002 f250. Please tell me whats going on and what chassis i need. Thanks for any help gents

    they say the mount is wrong even know it was just tore off a 02 f250, seems like the webbed back of the mount is in the way when the wheels turn. does the correct mount have a webbed back?

    The same mount fits, both mounts have webs. The 07 is coil spring and has a tighter turning radius. IF you are running over stock tires OR you have aftermarket rims you may see rubbing of the tires on the webs. You can adjust the turning stops on the axle like the guys did with the older trucks when they put on oversize tires. J

    The f350 is stock with fx4 and the f250 had wider tires and looks like a larger mount,
