Early Build???!

ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1415320512.714704.jpg

Am I reading this correct a Jan 8th 2014 build date?

I purchased, new from dealer last week, Oct 2014. I was thinking I was past the early build issues.

I updated uconnect to 14.25, it was 13.48. Now concerned about the other TSBs that weren't done. However, knock of the real wood trim, driving well, good mpg, shifting well and no def probs and oil life seems accurate. But, only 300 miles on od.

I think the 04 is 2014 and the 03 is 2013. Also I bought mine in March 2013 so I know it was built then. Your would have to be in 2014. They didn't make the diesel in January of 2013.

Re: Early Build???!

In the upper left side of that decal, which is not shown in your picture...

There's a line directly under the large CHRYSLER GROUP LLC.

On mine it reads: DATE OF MFR (BUILT): APR 13

No Ricky Ranger Decoder Ring required.

Confirmed 1-14. No wonder I got a good deal, this gc was on the lot for awhile.

Re: Early Build???!

2014 was new model year, so, Imo, there "early" builds would be up to April 2014 or so.

Usually by this time some of the teething problems are fixed.

The tenth digit of the vin tells the year. D=13 E = 14 F=15

Click the link for a VIN decoder and so much more.

That's model year only, not production year. All our 2014 model year WK2's will have an E in that position even if built in 2013.
