    They all have the same frame from F-150 through F-350, at least from '80-96.

    F150 and F350 are different.

    F350 have more thick frame.

    It be cheap for you buy used truck from South. Most they go $1,000-$5,000

    I'm sure.

    Go ahead and look up a new frame for a '94 F-150 at http://www.newfordparts.com/catalog.htm in the body parts area.

    You'll see F-150,F-250 and F-350 listed for the frame depending on what length you choose.

    I've personally owned an '88 Bronco, '88 F-250, '88 F-350, '91 f-250, and a '97 F-250 and I've never noticed any differences in the frames not including the differences in suspension mounts. All the parts that attach to the frame are interchangeable between the models and the holes are all the same.

    Edit- the Bronco had some differences in the frame from the B-pillar back due to body configurations.

    Edit- there is a split from '91 to '92. '92 and up had the accordion crush zone on the front frame rail horns.

    I've got a wrecked F450 I use for parts. 2001 I think. Bend in the Driv. side frame over the front axle.

    Are you looking for a frame or a rolling chassis?
