Nerds! Mine falls into the recall. I better go get torqued :)

Mine was made in July, but I can't figure out what day. Anybody know a way to decipher the VIN?

:banghead:

Just go on the jeep website and you can punch in your vin number. It then tells you if you have a recall

I wonder which bolts are loose, and if they’ll round out any holes before they get re-torqued?

Duh... do it the easy way. They only list the "door latch" recall for mine. But, I did ask for my build sheet since I had to register anyway.

Went and checked mine, it was made in Oct-2010. I guess I am in the clear :)
