What is a "Job 2 truck"?

Like the title says, what is a job 2 truck? Another member posted that he has a job 2 truck and it has no issues.....................Does this mean 2nd year of production of a given model of truck?

Job1 would be the early production run, and Job2 would be whenever they've made some changes to the production lines. Job1 and Job2 will still be the same model year.

It means you got vacuum powered brakes instead of hydro brakes. Sorry.

I thought the job 2 trucks were the ones that came with the 400,800 flash from the factory.

Refer to this excerpt from the order guide:

This is for the 2012 model year btw. The 2011s had a different Job 1 / Job 2 cutoff date.

This week I am rolling in a 2012 6.2L F-350 rental truck with the vacuum boost brakes. The brake pedal feel is very different. Of course both types of brake power assist work correctly to stop the vehicle anyway so I suppose there is no problem with either system.

Oh right, the other change for 2012 Job 2 is the metal engine oil pan for the 6.7L.
