Job 1 Opinions Please

I found a deal on a Job 1 F350 6.4 that I really like with about 34,000 miles. How many people like they're job 1's and is it a bad idea to consider this? Opinions would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you

I bought a job 1 truck last oct w 33k and so far I love it. Completely stock and now has 48k and no troubles at all, hope it stays that way. From all I have heard and read with routine maintenance these trucks are fine. I have heard of the job 1s having some prob but by now an 08 should already have most fixed. Good luck.

I have a job 3, but as long as all the TSB's have been addressed, it should be fine.

There was an issue with a select amount of injectors that were bad, but a TSB was issued to address. There was also an issue with allot of the original radiators, but most have been taken care of.

Try to get an oasis report to see what's been done and what hasn't been done.

I have an 08 with 1075xx on it and the original owner had all the recalls done...only issue I had was a clogged oil cooler which Ford replaced for free!

My job 1 has 140,000 km on just a few minor things went wrong other then that it's been a great truck just keep your maintenance up on it and you shouldn't have many issues if any at all

Don't think it's a bad idea at all. See if you can get an Oasis report on it to see if all the recalls/TSBs have been done on it. If they have, you just got yourself a very low mileage 6.4 that still has some remaining factory warranty on it. To be honest, I don't see how you could go wrong.
