Larger from air dam, which apparently helps with the mileage. The only thing I've heard people complaining about with the Job 2's are the tire pressure sensors, major issues if you want to run different wheels or larger tires.CornellCowboy said:Thanks! Anyone know what changes were made, any signifigant?
I think if it was me on this one.. I would have got the 3.55s and then just put in whatever gear you wanted to run and you would have been alot less$$$ in the long run... :shrug:Desert Dawg said:I just ordered my 2008 F250 Crew FX4 last night. I built it online, but when I went to order the truck through the dealer, I was told that Job 3 now defaults to 3.55 rear axles. Since I actually go offroad for fun and will be putting on larger tires, I really wanted the 3.73s. The dealer said that Ford hasn't even updated their own systems yet, but they showed me how they couldn't load up the order without spending another +$1700 for the 20-inch wheel/tire package. I thought that was insane. Why market an "off-road" package that only has 3.55s and then force you to buy street 20s? I was told that Ford has received so many complaints about the fuel mileage that they are forcing the 3.55s. I insisted on the 3.73s so it basically cost me $1700 to have them and will have to sell my factory wheels and tires. But now I am second guessing myself about upgrading the gearing if the mileage was really that bad to force Ford to make such a change? :shrug:
Yeah, I thought about that actually. The gear set would have been cheaper, but I would need to pay a quality shop to install them since I travel/work a lot and don't have a lot of down time. So based on some quotes I was getting, it was going to be about the same price to upgrade later not to mention the hassle. And now I have factory gears with warranty and all that. But you're right....definitetly worth considering.hhrecovery said:I think if it was me on this one..
