2008 Ford SuperDuty diesel-powered trucks, F-250 thru F-550:

Roughly, 2008 Job 1 trucks were produced in the first half of 2007. Job 2 trucks were produced in the second half of 2007. And Job 3 trucks were produced in 2008. So if you find a new Job 1 2008 on a dealer's lot, it has been sitting there for well over a year. And a Job 2 truck has been sitting there for about a year. A Job 3 truck will have been sitting there for only 3 to 9 months.

To see what was included in Job 1 trucks, and what changed for Job 2 truck, click on the following link and skip down to about page 11 and start reading until you finish about page 32. https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckBBAS/non-html/2008/whatsnew2008.pdf ... Basically, they added some options for Job 2 that weren't available for Job 1.

Next, click on the following link: Sunrise Ford Fleet - The Download Center, change the model year to 2008, and download the 2008 order guide for your choice of pickup. The Job 3 changes are listed in that order guide.

Is there anything you can do just by looking at them? I am looking at a bunch of trucks online and with limited pictures whats the best way to figure it out?

there are a few visual cues, and options. but when buying a truck there isnt a big enough difference to push one over the edge.

visual things, larger front air dam on the job 2 and 3, chrome package only available on job 2 and 3, but those are about it.

In the image below, its the black piece below the front bumper. On the Job 2 & 3 it was extended to about 6in+.
