Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Hi, Does anyone know how to figure out the first part of the VIN?

This VIN is for a "2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.6L V6 FFV 4x4 8-speed Automatic"
1C4RJFCT6EC105046

The only difference with mine SHould be the diesel 3.0 liter. Which digit is it and what should it be? My best info was position 8 needs to be an "M" but check digit is invalid if I try that. If anyone has a diesel ordered with the full VIN let me know the first 9 digits and I should be able to figure it out from there....

EDIT: I think I got it; The first 8 digits should be: 1C4RJFCM for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 EXF 3.0 L diesel. The "M" in position 8 is for the diesel. I used this guys calculator to determine the check digit: Alton's VIN Calculation Page. I Used "1C4RJFCM" + "X" plus the Last 8 of the VIN I got from Jeep. It produced a VIN which I put into a VIN decoder and it came back correctly I believe.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Matt, call your dealer now, they should still be able to add the engine block heater.

Thank you for confirming this. That's what I came up with as well.

Become a premium Level III or higher member and JeepGarage can track the order straight to your dealers front door. Sponsored by W2KJeeps.com MOTS just does it better. That and level IV or higher and you will get a complete vehicle build sheet once your truck is built... Dan, come on down!

That was my Bob Barker impression, how did it sound?

If I closed my eye's I would know if it was you or Bob.

Can you give me more info on the details that I could get through MOTS and the build sheet info that isn't available to me through the "jeep.com/vots" page?
Thanks

Swapped to the A/T2 tires. No noticeable degradation in ride quality and only very minimal increase in noise. One word of caution, they are serious rock chuckers... the shoulder tread is spaced perfectly to throw typical gravel road sized stones directly into your rear doors...... mud flaps are a necessity.

Well VOTS can give you some build tracking but it won't give you the detail of the transit and where it goes after production. There is not a big price difference between level 3 and level 4 so a lot of people like the piece of mind of getting a complete build sheet. The options sheet from the dealer really only shows upgrade codes but the build sheet shows the option codes for every component in the build. A very handy reference tool down the road.

There is also other information which if you take a look at the CRD note Milous posted, he was able to let the tracked people know they were at D1 (production start) before even the dealers would have known. Basically it comes down to detail and timely notice. I have actually not seen any definitive proof that Milous sleeps at all and many member note that he seems to be updating the info and here on the forums nearly 24/7.

Edit: btw I do not in any way benefit financially from this site, so am am not speaking of any value that I do not recognize myself.

I didn't think either you Milous sleep. It is great that you both put such frequent updates at all hours of the day and night. The forum members appreciate all that you and Milous do!!! (and a few others in the forums)
