Any reason to avoid buying a Job1 truck?

Hey all,

Looking at the option of trading in the Effonefitty this week on a new 6.7. The dealer has a job1 and three job2's that I am interested in. I was thinking of trying to negotiate the price a bit with the job1 since it has sat on their lot for about 6months now. Is there any issues that are known with the job1 trucks that should cause me to go straight for the job2?

Thanks in advance.

To the best of my knowledge, they will (or have) run the computer update on a Job 1 truck and it should run the same as a Job 2.

Job 1 trucks have the two-tone leather seats. Job 2 does not. I think the rear window defrost may be a job 2 option but don't quote me on it.

I would say just make sure it has the 400/800 flash. My truck is job 1, purchased in December 2010, and it did not have the up to date PCM Flash.

My Job 1 KR does not have the driver's seat easy access feature of the Job 2's. I hear most people don't use that feature anyway.

The dealer wasn't willing to knock any off the price of the job1, so we went for a job2. The job1 was a really nice truck, we test drove it a few miles and I was really impressed. However, my wife and I both were neutral on the color, and the interior. We were able to get a Job2 in the color I loved and wife approved, and the interior configuration we both wanted.

Thanks for the replies.

Not that it matters much now, but as far as I know, there were no major differences. Most Job 1's sold in 2011 should have been flashed for the 400/800. There is another flash recently released to solve some hard shifting issues on Job 1's. Also, the two-tone seats were only a Job 1 option.

Job 1 also had the 2 tone seats, job 2 does not, to the best of my knowledge.
