The OP posted: "Looking at an "equal" 150 and 250, same axle ratio, heavy duty towing, tire size, etc...."
So I didn't mention the 4.30 axle ratio available in the F-250 with 6.3L engine. The results wouldn't be very close to "equal" to the F-150 HD.
Of course, the F-150 with heavy duty payload package doesn't have the same size tires as the F-250, either. So you cannot put together an F-150 and F-250 with the same " same axle ratio, heavy duty towing, tire size, etc...." and get close to the same capability. The F-150 has to have the heavy duty payload pkg to get close to the payload of the F-250. But the heavy duty payload package requires the 17" tires on phunny wheels, and with Lariat trim the F-250 has 18" tires standard with 20" optional.
The same 6.2L engine is available in both the F-150 and F-250, but the F-150 with the 6.2L gas engine doesn't have even close to the payload of the F-250.
