Actually VIN's are assigned when the order is accepted but based on my VIN of 629xxx being built in late January and the plant shift to Durrango's in December I'd say late November build. If you have the entire VIN I can probably figure it out.

Interesting, Just goes to show you the VIN sequence means nothing aside from when the order was accepted by Chrysler considering mine was built 19 days BEFORE this one and it's VIN ends in 629xxx. I also noticed the Durango's last 6 digits seem to be in sequence with the WK2's. Is that a correct observation?

Yes, Durango and WK2 VIN's are all intermixed. Build date cannot really be determined by the VIN, vehicles coming down the line can be hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of digits apart.

Thanks, I had the wrong idea about the sequence number.
the entire vin is 1J4RR6GT5BC606096.

I'd appreciate any info, I had an Overland promised from a out of state dealer, but the deal fell through. I'm starting my look again and found one with the above VIN, just wondering about the build date.

Thanks again.

Oops!
I didn't think that was a serious reply (since Feb 10 was a Thursday).
I didn't notice the author.
I appreciate the info.
Thanks Milous!

^^^ Does it have the RHR? The window sticker shows a $305 upcharge from the 430N standard and lists 730N... Soooo it looks like it is one of the lucky few that got the RHR early???

Don't know which radio it has, that is one of the things I was wondering about. It is currently about 300 miles from my location (local dealer says he can get it for me).

^^^ I have been very pleased with the RHR so far...sure beats the REC from 2005!

Jeez, looks like I looked at a 2010 calendar by mistake, fixed the post, THURSDAY Feb 10th.

It has the RER nav radio.
