Job of truck and how it relates to TCM

So whats the difference with the Jobs 1,2, and 3s is it the TCM's? My truck was built in Aug of 07. So what does that mean.

Thanks

It could be a Job 1 and it could be a Job 2 I believe. I think Job 2 starts after July of 2007, but I can't remember for sure. There are Job 1 trucks with November and December of 2007 build dates. Basically the issue is that if you have a Job 1 TCM, you really need to have the Spartan TCM on your truck if you plan on running the 310 tune.

If you pm me your vin number then I can tell you what job your truck is. There are a few differences between the job 1, 2, and 3 but as far as tuning goes the TCM is the biggest thing. Job 1 trucks just don't hold up as well with the higher tunes and the shifting is a lot harder. Need more information on it just pm me!

They aren't as good for tuning.

the Job 2/3 trucks have upgraded hardware(wiring) that allow more current to get to the shift solenoids for more possitive engagement under higher hp applications.

Just some odds and ends. A couple of doo-dads, here and there.
