Have Window Sticker -- tracking build dates by VIN

Only go to this topic when you CAN see and print your window sticker!
As suggested, here is a new thread for those who can see their window stickers. Please post your VIN and build date (when you know it). If you can't see/print your window sticker, another thread may be a better location such as Tracking Build Dates:

Tracking Build Dates

Thanks.

PS -- OT -- I ordered a Wagon today -- will post details over the weekend.

Edit -- Saturday morning -- details of order:

XLT Wagon ordered

willy, can you see your window sticker online?

CrewVanMan has guidelines here for getting your window sticker, as you know:

If you don't have your window sticker yet, this thread will just get confusing for others . . .

Thanks

Your VIN is 522 higher than Gianz's 36481 with his build date of 11/30 being 4 days ahead of your 12/4.

Are these numbers consistent, CrewVanMan, with your understanding of the KC plant's output? [1500 to 1800 per week]

Thanks for the idea of this specific topic for a thread. Seems as if it will be helpful to focus in this manner.

Not sure where you are getting the "3rd week in Dec also?"

Your VIN is only 46 higher than CrewVanMan (37049 minus 37003), and his build start date is 12/4, so your build date could be in the window 12/4 to 12/6 IMO, perhaps as late as the 12/8 you cite, but probably not after the 8th?

"whats 3 weeks after waiting 7 months to get the window sticker which I did on Monday" --

Cool

Guys, I`ve got a Vin#37104, dealer shows build date of 12-22. Looks pretty accurate to me.

Be sure to go by the date on YOUR WINDOW STICKER for the start date of production.

The 11/30 build date is a SUNDAY, so not sure the van starting date would be on that day. If it was actually on DEC 1 which is a MONDAY, then the 300-350 per day production would be in that range for the other van built on DEC 4. Also remember that one van could be started at the end of one day and the other van could be at the first of the other day,(or reversed) so the numbers between the vans could be more or less than the daily production rate(s).

Kahuna,
Have you printed your window sticker yet? What does it show at the top of the sticker? 1 2014 12 ??
