Re: Might have to cancel order... Opinions please!

Re: Is Jeep taking new diesel orders or not?

If you go to VOTS and put in the VON, I think it will give you the VIN.

Re: How long can orders be changed?

The last eight have nothing to do with options.

They represent the model year, the assembly plant, and the sequence the numbers were assigned.

VINS are assigned way before production starts.
