First of the WK2's, whats your build date?

I was just curious to see when many of your GC's were built. only after the fact did i find out that my 4th gen ram is one of the first to roll off the line back in june of 08 and we bought our Jeep last sept and it was built August 2nd 2010.
Its a weird feeling to have 2 of some of the first of a new model change and not even know it. just curious how many where made last july.

*side note* we just picked up our jeep today after my wife had her accident 2 weeks ago. got an entire new front end and its just like new again. even smells like it.

I wasn't too far behind you, August 14, 2010.

FWIW - My Jeep has had zero problems so far.

Re: First of the WK2's, whats your build date?

awesome, i figured there would be quite a few that were built around that time frame.

the only things we've had done was both faulty key fobs within 60 days of owning it, and during one of those times in the shop they did some fo the recall work for the minors things and noticed our rack was covered so they ordered a whole new assembly and had it over-nighted and installed it next day. it never leaked onto the garage floor but but was covered in fluid apparently.

weve had a 2012 malibu for the past 2 weeks for a rental and my wife was soooo glad to get the jeep back today.

Re: First of the WK2's, whats your build date?

I signed the papers for my 2012 Overland today, but won't P-U until next Saturday.
I know mine was built in October, 2011, but I don't know the actual day?

Question - How do you find out the exact day?
