Determining Build date....

The plate on the door jamb gives the month/year, is there a more precise way?

TIA!

You used to be able to sign in as an owner at jeeps.com, register your VIN and request a build sheet.

Otherwise a dealer can run the Vin and get the day and hour it rolled off the line.

If they still do it there is another # on that same sticker that gives the month,day,and hour it rolled off the line.

For the build date/time you need two entries both on the door jamb sticker. At the top left is the month and year. On the bottom right is an entry marked MDH. That is Month/Day/Hour.

How precise do you want the actual build date/hour? Depending on how you define the build date, the door jam MDH stamp may be a couple days off real time, if it matters (mine was off near 2 days from the production barcode scans). It is what Jeep uses for TSB and recalls, however.

That worked perfectly, it was exactly what I needed.

Thanks to everyone!
