New JK Order

Hi All,

Finally placed the order on January 2nd. Steel Blue Sahara 4x4 Unlimited, Tow, Sirius, limited slip, soft top. Really excited, havn't had a new vehicle in years. I used the FPP program and ordered for 1% under invoice. Is there a way to get the VIN number without asking the dealer. I don't know if he is pissed at me or what, but he isn't returning my phone calls. I would think they are still making a nice profit even with the discounted price.

I was on the fence about the mygig, but will be using the cash to buy a aftermarket Hard Top from Bestop.

You all have been very helpful in my decision....Thanks

What probably stings is the JK will come out of his allocation and, even though he's not losing money on your deal, he's not making a grand or two selling to someone else.

Congratulations!

Maldoro - I ordered mine (Steel Blue 2dr Ruby, auto, dual top, tow) on 11/23 and just found out today I'm D-1 status. My dealer was no help so I started calling DC directly (see thread under sticky). After a number of menu selections you get a real human and they have been very helpful.

I think you can only get the first 8 digits of the VIN when it goes BG status. I don't think the total VIN is assigned until you are D-1. You do need to get the VON = vehicle order number from your dealer for DC to be able to help you check the status. The first time you call in with the VON in hand ask for a reference number so that the next time you call in they can pull it up straight away.

Congratulations on the soon to be new ride.

Odd thing about the VIN, the first 8 digits would not be unique to your jeep. The number would just translate to things like 'JEEP, WRANGLER, 4dr, Auto, Hard top' and other things like that. The last 7 digits are what is unique to your jeep.

They could tell you your first 7 digits from just constructing it online.

First two digits: always '1J' (signifies built in USA and is a Jeep)

Next five digits:
4/8 - 4=No side air bags; 8=with side air bags
F/G - F=2dr X or Sahara (lower GVWR); G=all others (higher GWVR)
A/B/E - A=4x4; B=4x2; E=RHD 4x4
2/3/5/6 - 2=2dr X; 3=4dr X; 5=Sahara; 6=Rubicon
4/9 - 4=2dr; 9=4dr
So:
FA24 - 2dr X 4x4
FA54 - 2dr S 4x4
GA64 - 2dr R 4x4
GB39 - 4dr X 4x2
GA39 - 4dr X 4x4
GB59 - 4dr S 4x2
GA59 - 4dr S 4x4
GA69 - 4dr R 4x4

8th digit: In the US, always 1 (3.8l v6) --- 2.8l Diesel will have a 9

9th digit: check digit

10th digit: Always 7 (model year 2007)

11th digit: Always L (built in Toledo)

12-17: 6 digit serial number


EDITED: Added side air bag, RHD, and 2.8 diesel info

Thanks all, I guess I just have to wait and see, the dealer will not return my phone calls so I will have no VON number to track my progress. Kinda irritating. I see a visit to the sales manager's office in my near future

Sounds like great service after the sale. Be sure to tell all of your friends to go see him for their next vehicle purchase.

I had to go to 3 dealers before they would take my Affiliate program discount. One said no way, the other told me that I had to order it and not take it off his lot. Finally the 3rd said he would do it becasue the weather was so bad here that he didn't move many cars over the weekend and wanted a sale.

Just drop by the dealer and ask for a copy of their order to DC. Maybe do it when the sales guy is not there.

Thanks Shock.....I didn't order a hard top or mygig. Most likely one of the easier orders.

Steel Blue Sahara, 4dr 4X4, 6sp, Towing, 17inch rims, Sirius, Locking Fuel Cap and Limited slip.

Hmm, I wonder if I'm on that same train. Jeep was released on 1/31. Status tells me I'm in KZL status but I was told it is in transist. No Proof. Have no idea how the train makes it way down south. I'm in FLorida.
