Job 1, Job 2...?

I'm looking at purchasing an '08. I have two picked out and they both have 75,000 miles. Both are Lariats and both are priced almost identical.

Truck 1 was manufactured in 3/07. It also has navigation, sunroof, and the shorter front air dam.

Truck 2 was manufactured in 8/07. It doesn't have navigation or sunroof but it does have the taller air dam.

On another forum site, multiple members refer to Job numbers of their trucks. Supposedly, Job 1 trucks have the shorter front air dam while Job 2 models have the taller air dam. It's of their opinion that Job 1 trucks have more problems; especially with the radiators.

So...
1. Is there a tried and true way of telling which Job number a truck is?
2. Is it really a big deal?
3. Since price is virtually the same, is buying a Job 2 truck better than a Job 1 truck, even though the Job 1 truck has the navigation and sunroof?

Thanks

My job 1 has radiator problems. Otherwise, it's been very solid. I have 121,000 miles on it.

Job # dates for the '08 model year are listed in the 6.4 Tech Folder. Go check it out, there is also a summary of the changes listing the job 1, 2, 3.

I purchased the tall air dam used from somebody here on FTE that did'nt like it. Some say that it can give a 1 mpg gain if you drive interstate a lot.

I would get an OASIS report on both trucks and then buy the one you like and not look back. I have a co worker with a job 2 truck identical to mine, he had his engine replaced due to a blown EGR cooler.

I'm a job 3...I had a bad TCM at 600 miles, but other than that just fine. Don't think the job #'s are that important this late in the game.

Rather look at the OASIS reports and inspect/drive the truck very carefully to insure a good purchase.

Thanks for everyone's help. I've learned quite a bit. I never knew about the tech folder. Maybe because I've never looked.

Like ruschejj said, "I would get an OASIS report on both trucks and then buy the one you like and not look back".

Thanks again.

Also, I bought a used 08 F350, Job 1 (built 4/07) with 45k miles in Sept 09.. It had the radiator problem prior to my purchase (showed on the Oasis report).
