it's not hard at all to tell from looks. a '99 superduty looks like this. (pic below.) of course it may have a different cab or bed length or whatever. just for reference, the looked like this till '04, then just slightly different till '07....they even today have the same basic shape (same cab). they also have 8 lug wheels. the light duty was a model they made to help fill a production gap, 97-98s and a few '99s as well. it will have the same body shape etc as a 97-03 F-150, just F-250 badges. they also have 7 lug wheels, the regular F-150 has 5, as I said superdutys have 8. (F-150 7700s, which were really just an F-250 light duty but changed t0 the 150 7700 package when the superduties came out, also have 7 lugs). this is a superduty.
