BUILD SHEET -An Illustrated Guide on How to Get Your Jeeps Factory Specs

A tool I like to use to give me a definative answer about what, exactly, a jeep I'm buying (or have bought) has (or had) as standard equipment is the Chrysler Equipment Listing Online service. If you are new, and would like the facts about your jeep to help fill in your profile, this a great way to start.

By going to Jeep the jeep website and clicking Contact us, or following this link: http://www.jeep.com/webselfservice/j...527R%2527%2529

You will see a section on the left side marked "Equipment Listing" (in the red circle below)



Clicking the Equipment listing will bring up an area in which you enter the 17 digit VIN number of your Jeep (the red box in the image below).




Please Note: The website states "Vehicles built before 1998 are not eligable for this service" That's not correct. I have entered in 1990 Jeep VINs and recieved a build sheet.

Once you have carefully entered in your VIN number, click the orange Search button. A new Tab will open in your web browser and your build sheet will appear in this new tab as a PDF.

Simply mouse over the lower right hand corner of the PDF and click on the SAVE icon to save it to your computer.

If your build sheet does not come up with the online search, you can always email Chrysler support using the link at the bottom of the page and request a copy of your build sheet. Be sure and supply them with your year, model, and VIN in the body of your email.

Hope this helps those, like me, who like to know what we are dealing with on new-to-me Jeeps.

EDIT: Also Note the RECALL INFORMATION link on that page - can't hurt to run your VIN through that just in case!

I always liked Tim's writeups that save so much heartache. I must have three of them bookmarked to point people in the right direction.

<- that's tea!! Cheers!!

I have the 4.0 auto combo an read most had 3.54's but guess not mine. Guess that explains why I get good mileage on the highway. Seems to turn my 31's fine though.

Not to Hijack the thread, but I see you're from Lorain! I'm in Little Italy on the other side of Cleveland. We're no wheeling access neighbors!

They must have had a hell of a time driving mine off the assembly line, my sheet says 15x7.0 steel wheels, but then says P265/60R-18 tires!! Thats about 3" of problem. Thanks for the post, though. I have been wanting to get this information.

Thanks for the info. I don't know what the original owner paid for it but he got the "extra 9 gallons of gas" according to the info from Chrysler and I never knew they had a 75 amp alternator.
