By no means am I knocking on, or scared of a Job1 truck, as its still a very good chance I may get one. Sorry if i stepped on anyones toes... not my intention
Oh no, you didn't step on anyone's toes. I'm just saying, like you said, there are fixes for all the issues that I know of. I wouldn't let a good deal on a job one pass you by. Chances are if it has made it this long then everything has most likely been took care of I would think. Mine is a very early job one, 3/07, and I will list everything I have had done to it since I got it at 40k and it has 78k on it now. Mind you I had the oasis pulled when I got it and it hadn't had anything but basic maintenance done. I bought an ESP when I got the truck and I have milked it for everything I could so a lot of this stuff probably didn't even really need to be done. I was pulling TSB's and having everything that I could replaced or fixed. The Ford dealership knows me by name and probably doesn't like me that much. But here it goes...
2: Upper radiator hose
3: Charge air cooler
4: Steering Wheel (leather started wearing)
5: Gear shift assembly (Tow/Haul button stopped working)
6: Both outer tie rod ends (did that here recently so it was normal wear I guess)
7: Digital Air Control (definitely didn't need that replaced)
I am currently waiting to have an actuator for the a/c replaced behind the dash because of a weird noise.
