For those in the waiting room... jeepstatus.com

Hey guys,

While waiting 2+ months on the 10th Anniversary Editions to arrive (See epic thread) I got tired of hacking the VOTS servlet to see the actual status code for my jeep. It was right there in the coded response and Chrysler just decided not to let us see it on the main VOTS page.

So, I threw together a little wrapper for VOTS and put it on the interwebs at jeepstatus.com. Several of the 10A people have used it and it seems to be working great.

It requires a last name and last 8 digits of your VIN number (not VON right now, sorry).

After you use it the first time, you can bookmark the result and never have to input the information again. Also, the app will cache what VOTS has to say for 20 minutes to keep me from slamming Chrysler's server over and over.

If you do use it and run across something that doesn't work, tell me via the email link on the page. It's hard to know what happens with others since I only have one last name/vin to myself. I've gotten every bug worked out that I have been told about so far.

Hope you enjoy.

EDIT: Also, I don't store anything longer than the 20 minute cache. I do not care about your last name and VIN conspiracy theorists. All the code is available at https://github.com/gig3m/jeepstatus

Cool! Nice work indeed!

It'd be nice if there was a bit more explanation in this step -

Quote:
Code:
D
Desription:
Production Scheduled
Explanation:
Firm Schedule - Dealer Has Allocation And All Parts Available
Such as a date for when production has been scheduled for. I ordered on the 13th.

Thanks for the feedback, and I agree completely. However, Chrysler is not returning that information in the VOTS JSON response (the code part you've probably looked at before). If what I think I know is correct, only the dealer and IAMJEEP can see that date.

If and when Chrysler provides it for us, I will definitely add it.

Most people get the first email (useless) then a second that gives you a VIN. The third email will come to you when you get a date for frame, if I'm reading the chatter correctly. So you'll know it's moving fast after that.

I wish I didn't know, but I'm 4/8 and have my second email. So if you're 4/13, you're close

Interesting...I only received 1 email with the last 8 of the VIN so far.

Can't wait to take delivery! LOL!

Does anyone have any idea on how I could check the status of a jeep that was ordered by a dealership that I have now purchased? Last I saw it was in D status near the start of April.

Thanks!

I would just call them and ask for the last 8 of the VIN or the Vehicle Order Number. I assume they have that, even if they planned it for the lot and you purchased it.

You'll need both the VIN and the last name on the sold order. You cannot track a Jeep without both of these things.

That's my current issue haha, it was ordered by the dealer with the options I wanted so I assumed the order and ended up purchasing it. Now however I cannot track it. I know back when I ordered my challenger all I needed was the VON or VIN. Looks like they are cracking down on it now :-(.
