Job 2

Ford Super Duty Reclaims Diesel Power Title: 400 HP, 800 Pounds-Feet of Torque - PickupTrucks.com News


The one-ton Ford F-350 dual-rear-wheel is getting hardware improvements that will increase maximum payload and maximum fifth-wheel towing to best-in-class levels. Increased use of high-strength steel in the frame will boost the maximum payload to 7,070 pounds, up from 6,520 pounds, and max fifth-wheel towing to 22,600 pounds, up from 21,600 pounds.

There's no increase in conventional towing and payload for F-250 and F-350 single-rear-wheel trucks or the F-450 pickup. Current owners of F-350 DRWs will not be able to retrofit their trucks to the new towing and hauling figures. Only 2011 Job 2 F-350 duallys will carry the higher ratings.
So since these higher rated duallys are going into production at the end of Aug I guess that means that Job 2 is coming earlier than originally thought?

I was just looking on the Ford Fleet website and they have the new Job 2 options listed. The trucks can be ordered with a roll up tonneau cover for $330.00, dual hedrest DVD monitors for $1,995.00!!! wow, and something that has me confused, option 43B is a "Heated backlight & rear window defroster" for $155.00. Does anyone have any idea what a heated backlight is?

My son the Ford diesel tech tells me the J2 will have a new front cover on the engine permiting the gerotor oil pump to be serviced without the front cover having to be replaced each time as with the J1. Should make this repair cheaper if you're out of warranty.

I think that "backlight" is a Ford name for the rear window. Of course I might be wrong, I was once.

I just talked to the dealership about the re-flash at lunch. He said Job #2 are coming in to his lot most likely next week.

I can't find this info on the site either.

What is 10,000-lb. GVWR Package (6) (F-350 SRW) ???

I ordered my new 2011 Ford Truck 3 weeks ago. Still no build date. I wonder if I will be getting a Job2 or not? If I am, I wonder if I can add the extra options on the Job2? I would like the DVD Players and the Heated Rear Window if I could add those options to my order.

The 10000 gvw package is for the F250. The F350 SRW truck has gvw to 11500 pounds

Nice truck! Exactly what I ordered other than I got the 350.

Order Code "6" is a 10,000 LB GVWR for the F-350 only; it is a downgrade. Probably related to taxes and registration. see page 10 or 2011 Superduty Order Guide.

If you want the full GVWR rating you may want to get with your dealer and get the order code sixty-eight-D removed

I talked about these derated trucks for govt fee reductions on the RV forum one time. I was called a fool.

This link will take you to the Sunrise Ford Fleet website, ProFleetSales.com - Professional Fleet Sales of Ford Cars, SUVs and Trucks!, then click on "Quick Links" and then "Build & Price". When you are done building your truck you can create a brochure and it will give the weight of the truck as built to the pound, but the site is not quite up to date for the 2011's, so you won't get this info for a 2011 yet.

I guess I should mention that I was building a Lariat crew cab when I saw these options, not sure what all trim levels get what.
