2008 job 1 6.4

Hey guys I'm new to the powerstroke world. I currently own a 24v cummins and am looking into possibly selling/trading for a 6.4L. I've been talking to some local guys and they have told me the build job 1 is garbage. And that I should look for an 09-10. I was just wondering if this was the truth or not.. I'm finding some pretty decent deals on 08s around me but no 09-10s. (Such as a cclb kr with 158k for $25000, a ccsb with 141 for 26k, and a ccsb with 100k for 27. So basically all I'm wondering is before I bite the bullet are the 08 garbage? I love running my 500hp cummins but its time for something newer, thanks guys

I would almost be certain that by now all the job 1 problems would face been fixed, granted the owner acted on all the recalls. Personally I would just go with a job 2 or 3 and avoid that mess altogether.

Mines a Job 1, and i have the larger valance, the only thing it helps with is milage really.

As long as you check the warrenty and it had the Radiator replaced, assumming with 100K + thats been done then you really dont have any issues to deal with.

The transfilter on the outside of the pan, right below the bell housing is a dead give-a-way its a job 1. These things are pricy at 70+ bucks. I have seiously been thinking of removing mine, add a hose to skip it, and just use the internal filter.

Anyone done that yet? LOL

I've just heard about them melting pistons, bad #8 injectors, bad fuel pumps, bad egrs, bad head gaskets, and so on.
