3/4 Ton vs 1 Ton (2500/3500) Difference?

I'm looking at a Ford Super Duty. I can't figure out what the difference between an F-250 and F-350 is (except about $1k). This same question applies to Ram or GMC or Chevy, I think. But anyway in the world of Ford, F-250 and F-350 towing and payload are pretty close to identical; sometimes the F-350 has higher capacity by a smidge, sometimes the F-250 is brawnier. What is the deal?
